OK, 2017. Now what?
There is a nice dance studio close to my home. It's just 8 minutes walk, 2 minutes by car. I rehearse there 2 times a week now. I learn the phrase that I tried to learn 4,5 years ago in St. Petersburg, Russia. It's by Ivan Perez, Spanish choreographer, who was teaching at the Open Look Dance Festival in 2012.
It's not easy. The hardest part is watching videos of my performance. I am not very technical person, I don't have years of everyday dance training behind my shoulders. But I see progress every day, I keep working on "making the dance phrase my own" - adding my own touches, replacing things that don't work for me by something more familiar. And happy to say that I've got the hardest part - going down slowly bending your knees (my 14 months old does it as easy as she smiles...).
Anyway. I hope to start new work soon. And take more time refining and honing it.
Here are some videos of my process. Just some improv. I don't have the whole phrase uploaded yet.
