First Dance

I think the most important part in dancing is remembering where you came from, how you started and how good you wanted to see yourself be. Dancing is nothing more than a beautiful art which "enables you to find yourself and lose yourself at the same time".

I danced for about 17 years. As a kid, ballet was the worst and jazz/hip hop was the coolest thing you could do. As I got older, I realized how ballet helps with discipline while also providing a real escape for me despite whatever was going on outside the dance classroom. It took time and a lot of effort to build the technique that is ballet. I miss it greatly, especially pointe which is like the honors clas of ballet lol

What's great about vogueing is the preciseness of each movement while also doing these types of movements to the beat of the song. I chose this video because it proves how good vogueing can be.

Congratulations Misty Copeland for being promoted to principal dancer

Misty Copeland was promoted to principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater, a first for African American women. In the midst of all the claims that we are not in a post racial society, Copeland's achievement is most definitely a silver lining. And so despite some critical clams that she was promoted because of all the publicity and the pressure to prove racism wrong, or that people are celebrating this event for the wrong reason (for breaking the racial barrier rather than Copeland's personal achievement), congratulations. Regardless of how you view it, this is still an accomplishment in its rawest form.
