When I was first told about the Boise DanceFest, I wasn't too interested, because there isn't even a dance major available at Boise State University. "How good could the instructors be, anyway, right?"
You guys, the past week, I have had my little dancing toosher kicked at a level only comparable to my audition at the University of Utah (I had spasms in my back for 3 days after the audition; I still can't believe they took me). My favorite classes have been from two Julliard graduates who now dance with the Trey McIntyer Project, and another dancer who works in New York, dancing with a ton of the contemporary choreographers for So You Think You Can Dance. We're talkin' like Mia Michaels and Sonya Tayeh, people! Don't know what I'm talkin' about? Watch the show. You'll be stunned. I'm stunned. My back and glutes, specifically, are stunned. My rear is especially stunned; its killing me. I'm also taking a class from a girl who graduated from the University of Utah, and I'm excited to learn what she learned from the place I get to go. DanceFest Boise, in conclusion, is killer awesome. And I get to be in a performance with choreography from the geniuses I've worked with. Like I said, killer awesome. Way to go, Marla. The end.
