We live in a world of clichés where very often we trust the opinion of society and media to tell us what to do and how to live our lives. But before we dive forward let’s see what the dictionary says a cliché is:
“ Mindless repetition that betrays a lack the original though.”
When it comes to dance our observation is that people don’t know enough about it. Most of us have to trust our knowledge to what we’ve seen from movies or Dancing With The Stars. The truth is that most of the dance movies that we’ve seen in Hollywood are a very false interpretation of what really happens in a dancer’s life. Different angles, lightning and background music is being used to manipulate the opinion of the viewer. Most movies generally romanticize the character of the actor dancer giving him/her some “natural” skills due to genetics or supernatural powers and abilities that professional dancers have to learn and master for many years .
So may be it’s a talent then? Honestly we wish that that was true and every person finds their dance super power and vocation one day while walking in the park listening to their favorite tune and becomes the next Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers. As there is some talent involved most of the time our practice shows that you will need to work your butt off to become an excellent dancer and master your moves.
