If a dance doesn't win, it doesn't mean it's bad. If a choreographer isn't on SYTYCD, it doesn't mean they aren't worth working with. If a teacher can't book you something, it doesn't mean their class isn't worth taking. Know loyalty. ALWAYS remember where you came from and who got you there.
A champion will fail once in awhile. A contender will fail too but always try to become a champion no matter what. i agree with donatelli, because if you have no goals in your life, you have nothing to strive for and you don’t want it bad enough. My own experiences of when I wanted to be a contender is when i wanted to dance. Ever since i was little i always wanted to be a choreographer - but i will never get there unless i try and when i do it will make me happy and make me work harder than one.
I really need that now as I’m in high school and there are more challenges than before. Ms. Melinda pushes me to improve my technique and increase the difficulty of my dancing. Trying new things led me to places I never thought I could go and chances I never thought I would be able to get. Ms. Melinda has given me so many chances and opportunities. I really appreciate
What advice would you give to a younger dancer? My advice would be, don’t ever give up if it is something you love; keep pushing yourself to be the best you can be. The more time you dedicate to practicing the better you will become. You have to believe in yourself and take risks in order to push your boundaries to the next level. Most importantly you have to dance from the heart.
Some people who are feeling inadequate then see that person and begin to think they can never possibly be that thus giving up on that “thing”. Competition is there to improve us and if you don’t think that you can do a trait better then the next guy, success is obsolete. Competition is the only way for success in our society. Competition brings some kind of success to everyone in some aspect. We have to compete in school, physical activity, and the social realm to keep improving our world.
In the video, the dance looked like it was very easy to execute but having already been in the technique class all year, it is amazing to know that doing the movements correctly is actually difficult. May O’Donnell constructs her pieces with the use of spacial structure. She organizes her dancers so that different groups are spread out differently throughout the stage and at times she uses all dancers in one singular spacial structure, like a diagonal. She changes the organization on stage frequently so that the audience would be constantly captivated by the rapid action on stage. She also uses many other choreographic tools to keep the attention of the audience and bring contrast to her piece.
Organizing is the foundation for thriving businesses. For any potential successful business, competition provides employers with the necessary tools to become a better business to better serve its customers. The members pay top dollar to be apart of our business. So, our costumer service is what determines the perseverance of our business. Therefore, a big part of business is accepting all people who are willing to pay for our services.
It’s hard to work in this industry because it’s not just handed to you. You’re not just given a work schedule and get paid by the hour and many people don’t understand that. They don’t know what is behind the scenes. You must have a contract with an agency and then go on castings, if you are selected then ( which it’s a 99% chance you’re not) some models gets less than a hundred dollars to a couple thousand. It’s a very rewarding job but people don’t even try to understand what models go through and how hard it is.
As the dual progressed my team wrestled with purpose, passion and power. Finally, it was my turn to step out on that mat and put to work all my physical and mental preparation. The fans were roaring with excitement, the gym was full of supporters, my mind was racing and my heart was pounding. A moment of self-doubt overtook me: one mistake and all my dedication and drive would not pay off and I would let my team and school down. As the match began my mind was blank for the entirety of the first period and I relied on my body to do what it was trained to do.
We tended to put all fights and little arguments behind us, because in the performing arts industry your main focus is to work hard to polish and perfect a performance. We all got on with each other really well and it tended to be the main lead roles that would occasionally bicker, but that was always resolved and put in the past. I have learned how to work in a group with other people in a sophisticated way, and this can help me in the future as I can apply my knowledge to other performances I will
