Dance isn't part of life,.. but life itself

I crave for it!!!... think about it, choreograph it in my head as a way of procrastination,... can't listen to music while I am working because my imagination will be lost in it. I thought that it would be some kind of stage in my life, but the reality is that I could never let go of it.

Not being an example of a prima-ballerina, nor having the height or body for it, got to stop me from continuing to fit (aka. squeeze-in) some kind of dancing in my life. Following my desire to be part of the Houston dance community, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Freneticore (Frenetifamily sounds more like the way the group feels like =).

Every single one of the dancers have some kind of special characteristic that makes them unique on stage. I was lucky enough to be able to see "Memoriam" a couple of times and really enjoy their special talents.

Mollie fit perfect as the timid but yet strong character as Stacey's friend (a little bit of a trouble maker ;). I was really struggling for Mollie's character and her constant internal fight in between being a friend but at the same time preventing herself to be influenced by Stacey's character. Mollie's movements were flawless (as always, she can really make any steps look like they are "easy" to do). Stacey,... oh my God how much I enjoyed your acting,.. it didn't even felt like that, you are a natural. Stacey is just a bundle of joy. I am very happy I had the opportunity to meet you. I wish I would have met you before and enjoy more of your afro-brazilian class. I am pretty sure you will kick a** anywhere you go. You personality can light up any "dark" room. Kira, one word: powerful. I absolutely loved your performance. It was so strong, in so many ways,.. from the darkness of the character to the movements themselves. I bet you had a blast doing it too. Being the "bad guy" in the stories is so much fun. You are one of the most versatile people I have ever met in my life (no exaggerations). "Mal-mal" (aka Katie Perry) you are just as cute as a button. I am always impressed with your core strength, it almost feels like half of the time you are inventing a new way to be upside-down =D. You will always see her with a smile on her face. I haven't being able to make any of your jazz classes but I promise it is on my to-do list. Taylor, oh Taylor,... who would have thought that you will be in pointe again? (I did!!!) and I have to say that I am really glad to see you on them. Taylor did such a great job not only on her dancing and pointe work, but in the character itself. It was a perfect combination of innocence and creepiness. I also never thought I will see you with dark eyes hehe. She is a great friend and one of those "hard to find" people that will have your back no matter what. Rebecca, the sweet and patient one. She always have a good and positive comment in class, whether it has to be with the correction of dance step or just a silly joke to break the ice. Rebecca is a very organic and fluid dancer. It doesn't matter how much I try,.. my steps will never look the same as when she does them. She also thinks out of box, can't predict her next dance step,... always new ideas, you can never tell what her next performance will be about. And I love that!!! Last but not least Alex!, representing the male genre in class. Alex is such a gentleman and a very organized person. Thank you sooo much for your help on managing the house.

I am blessed to have people like you in my life. Whether it is the dancing part of my life, or the simple everyday life, you all contribute to fill it with happiness (thanks! =D )

Can't wait to see you all in class!
