choreographers block


...so I've been staying late after my evening tech class to work on choreography. I can't believe how much effort it takes out of me, and how out of shape my creative side has gotten. Something I've tried to do is record my ideas so that I don't forget. 

Sounds like a great idea, huh? 

Well, I accidentally pressed the start recording button instead of the stop recording button, taped myself without realizing it, and then when I finally figured out why my taping memory was running out, I took a look at the accidental footage. It was basically hilarious & depressing to watch myself trying desperately to think of something creative to do. I put some clips together and came up with a little home video so someday I can show my kids my prancy dance moves
I'll admit. I had a little too much fun putting this together. Some of the clips are me putting a real effort in movement, and some are clips of me just frustrated. I added a few reverse clips in, because I think I'm a better dancer when I dance in reverse, and it's way more interesting to watch. 

I truly hope you enjoy, dear friends. 

ps- the movie technically is over 3 minutes, but it's done when it fades out around 2, 
so don't bother to finish it. 

Just so you know.

Have a happy Tuesday.


  1. I thought the video was great Alyssa! I'm so jealous of you because you can move that way. I'm such a log when I dance...if you can imagine. Ha! Good post!

  2. You are such a beautiful dancer! Can I come watch you one of these times, just because I think it's lovely to watch. I MISS YOU!

  3. Oh my heck! You have no idea how much that pulled at my heart strings! I miss you tons! I especially miss having class with you. Someday, when I am an artist I want to dance like you, I want to have the fun, beautiful and effortless creativity like you too! I also loved watching that because I lay down in CRP when I am tired of trying too hard to be creative. This is probably my favorite post. Ever. The end.

  4. That was beautiful. Awesome possum. :)

  5. Wow! that was a really beautiful video. You are such a graceful dancer! That made me miss dance, miss you, and I want you and Gid to have kids right now.. so you can show your kids your prancy dance moves like you said :)
