New York City Here I Come
December 7, 2016
A very good friend of mine recently told me to start doing things that get me excited... At the time I was feeling pretty low and unsatisfied where I am currently in my life. After reflecting and crying...a lot.. I realized that the expectations I have set for myself are set in perfectionism (go figure - as a dancer there is nothing short of criticism and goals of perfection to dwell on, I also have grown into those personality qualities from my conditioning)... So I decided to start investigating what makes me excited. I looked into some meditative dance retreats (5 Rhythms, and Ecstatic dance are classes I love to take part in to keep my inner creative voice alive). The programs all looked promising, but I wanted something that would align with the training I need for professional company work. I tend to follow a couple dance companies, depending on what I'm focusing on in my dance journey. my recent inspiration has been Shen Wei Dance Arts, an amazing company that integrates visual art through physical movement, dramatic intentions, and down right amazing physical expression. Basically, one thing lead to another and I found myself booking a flight to New York and signed up for their winter intensive. I am so excited... which is exactly where I want to be. It will be enriching to learn from someone new and network with some creative minds in the city.
