May 21, 2013… New beginnings.
Last night we had the first practice for the new group we’re starting (we as in me, Tim Ambat, Jon Plaras, Joe Mendoza, Trisha Arzadon, and eventually CeLo Librojo). It was fun, it was productive, and it was refreshing.
It feels good to just be dancing again. And when I say dancing, I actually mean DANCING. Getting back to the pure reason of why I fell in love with this art all those years ago. And it feels good to dance with friends who are on the same page as me, who want the same things as I do, and have that same passion for dance as I do. I’m sure other team directors can relate when I say this… Directing a team is stressful. Very stressful. There’s so much time and energy that you must put into directing that often times you lose the actual joy of dancing in the process, and that’s what happened to me. I needed to step away and find that DANCER in me again. And that’s what all of the members in this new group want as well. We just want to dance, and have fun doing it.
Last night was only the beginning. We still have much to look forward to. I have a new concept video that I’m gonna be working on soon with them. I’m excited for what’s ahead. And hopefully we’ll also be able to decide on a group name lol.
Here’s to new beginnings.
