Being a “part time performer” back in Malaysia.. Of course I miss the feeling of standing on stage, holding the mic and just sing!! 2 minutes on stage took a long time to practice.. That’s a great feeling of success if you did well..
Every performers dream is to step on a huge stage in New York/LA or any other big cities.. For me.. I just wanna get a chance to step on stage again.. and yes.. Performing on a stage in NYC!! Sounds huge, isn’t it?
I have been joining a K Pop Dance class for a year.. I knew that they have a student show case every year.. Of course I took the chance to fulfill my tiny little dream..
Had been rehearsing for 4 months.. Every dance takes up to a month to learn it.. It’s tough especially I am working right now.. Remembering dance step used to be easy for me but not any more.. My mind might just go blank sometimes when I am stress.. Anyway.. It’s still fun to SWEAT and burn some calories with my hobby..
I was involved in 4 dances + opening and ending.. Total 6 dances.. I was exhausted already.. I really don’t know how some performers were able to perform 8-10 dances.. Anyway, the dances that I am involved were:
- We are a bit Different – EVOL
- BANG – After School
- Ice-cream – Hyuna
- tarantallegra – Junsu
Each and every dance was different.. EVOL reminds me of cool & fun; Bang gave me a feeling of sexy, hot school girl; ice-cream by Hyuna is definitely cute,sexy (& a little slutty :P).. Junsu’s dance is definitely hot and sexy in a cool way.. I was slightly disappointed that I couldn’t sign up for more dance because of my schedule but at least I still had fun with only 4 dances..
Standing back on stage, even though is not my individual performance made me really happy. At the end of the performance, I was extremely happy yet sad that it’s over.. I hope that I have the chance to perform again next year.. Wanna thanks to my friends that came over to support me.. There were many families came over to support.. I know that my family will definitely be here if the performance is in Malaysia.. Thanks to my parents that still supporting me to sing and dance..
I had joined so many dance classes and ILD is the class that I wanna stay and continue taking classes.. not because it’s K Pop but because of the people I know inside.. Our instructor MJ worked so hard to open up her studio in Flushing.. She started her own class 6 years ago.. and now, everyone just love her.. Never ever have I see everyone in the class that will not look down on you even though you are a newbie.. I am not a professional, I just wanna dance for fun.. MJ made the class so fun! Whenever I have questions, the students in the class will help me and I am not ashamed to raise my hand.. every steps to me is a learning process.. and Yes.. I am not a professional dancer but I have to say I improved A LOT!! (I might still look funny with some moves tho :P)
At the end of the performance, MJ wrote everyone a note.. THANK YOU MJ!! I would have to say I can’t find any instructor that will be as lovely as you!!!
I will continue taking class.. If you wanna see my silly dance video, you can see it on FB.. Also, check out the latest dance class by ILD:
