And a part of me just wants to hide out in a cave until the idea passes. LOL!
Whenever I choreograph a show, I usually assign the dancer that asks the most specific questions about details the task of being the dance captain. The main reason I do this is because I know that they are dedicated to making the movements as close as possible to what I am asking for. Usually this person is also technically sound and picks up steps fairly quickly… even when I don’t use counts and “boom kak whoosh” my way through a step. I do try to use counts as much as possible but sometimes I will focus on particular sounds in the middle of the number just to confuse the heck out of my dancers.
That being said, I think that being asked to take on the title Dance Captain is a great compliment for a dancer.
You can bet your boo-tay that I am gonna be up late these next couple of days making some serious notes and possibly spreadsheets breaking down steps to counts. But mind you, I did say POSSIBLY… I just gotta find some time.
Anyone got any extra time that they can spare? I need like 27 hours per day. 24 just ain’t cuttin’ it.
Welp, this has to be short, cuz… well… this kid is a Dance Captain! Hahahaha
Until next time,
I salute you!
