So on Saturday night I was able to go and attend one of my neices on Dave's side- Dance recitals in pocky. It was the DSDS studio and this is about the third year that I've been able to attend the recital. It always makes me so sad and missing dance, I still want to do it but I don't know where it fits in my life right now, and there isn't really that many options for "adult" classes. I don't like to go and dance and just have it be like a social, let's learn some dances kinda thing. I want the serious class that you go in and it's like "shut up, use your brain, learn these techniques, & push yourself extremely hard" and than when you get out of there your just sweating and weak with exhaustion but loving dance all the more. Ya I miss dance so much sometimes it aches, and I still can't listen to a song and not choreograph a dance to it.
Anyways I do like going to these recital things, I feel like a judge all the way through it though, I've just had to much training that I can't not see all the mistakes or beautiful, hard things. DSDS is an amazing studio and they go so many places and learn from so many different teachers, through out this recital they had had a guest teacher from Utah and his choreography was amazing and so moving, we even got to see him do a dance- AMAZING!
But the one thing I did have a problem with is their costumes and some of their choreography for the little girls. Everything was immodest, and it ruined some of the dances- here they would have this amazing choreography which was so beautiful in itself and they would have these girls dressed like they were in nighties- It would so ruin it.. And than with their little girls they'd have them doing all these sexual things like shaking their chests or their tushes and even some of the techniques they had these girls doing was to early for their bodies to be doing and it will mess up their development. That was the sad thing.
I would love to run a studio someday that had that amount of technique but I would so want it to be an uplifiting thing instead of a degrading thing that was all about sexuality, or giving these girls the idea that to get that attention they need to be doing something sexual. Anyways all in all I miss Dance. :(
