I'm a little aggrivated with myself not being able to land my tour jetes AT ALL. I've been continuously practicing but I just feel like I can't make any of the positions right, UGH. Any advice? I feel like my teachers are all going to give up on me if I don't start improving with my turns and tour jetes. :(

XOXO Laura

10:27 pm - Hi I'm New

I'm an 18 year old dancer, drummer, poet and, a little too involved activist. I first off want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING A TRANS POSITIVE COMMUNITY. Yeah, I get respect from other queers, my drumming group, and my other activists, but the majority of society is transphobic.

Anyways my current issue is with well both Bush and Martin, but seeing as I'm Canadian I focus on Martin, although its Bush's plan. What I am talking about is Ballistic Missile "Defence". Here in Ottawa we've started a campaign to directly target Martin and to bring awareness to the community to make sure BMD is shot down (pardon the pun) and is not endorsed by Canada as we wish no part in an arms race. Anyways so today I went to an action directly outside the Prime Minister's Office in -40oC. Note to self: Even drumming and dancing when its 40 below will not keep you warm. I encourage everyone to demonstrate, write letters, and promote information about Ballistic Missile "Defence", or as some of us have started titling it Ballistic Missile Bu..Sh..

current mood: calm

terpsichore5678 Hey, I'm new here... I'm a 17 year old female ballet/modern/contemporary dancer from Flint, MI, and I choreograph as well.

I've always thought of my art, and any art, for that matter, as an ideal place to voice my views on the world, and the state of humanity--particularly in light of what's happened to US policies these past years.

My last piece choreographed, Cold Fire, was an anti-war modern piece for four dancers set to music by Carl Orff (Badlands Suite III). My dancers and I used Picasso's Guernica as a starting point, and then used poetry and photography to bring the piece to another level. Cold Fire was performed at the 2004 RDA Midstates Festival, and a few local performances.

I use Cold Fire as an example of my dedication to opening the eyes of the world to not only the power of dance to communicate the state of humanity, but also to the corruption of our government.

This is an awesome community, I can't believe I found something so perfect for a person like me-- an active liberal, and dedicated dancer and choreographer. So great!

current mood: impressed

10:52 pm - New!

Hey everyone! i'm new here, my name is Tina, i've been dancing for most of my life. Jazz and ballet when I was little, but then cecchetti ballet pretty seriously until last year. I quit my studio because of the emotional stress that came from having the wrong "dancer body." I was constantly told that I was too fat, and the time commitment was making my schoolwork and relationships suffer. So I quit. I became a lot happier, but I missed dance sooo much, so I started taking a few classes again this year. Next year I'll be going to college, and hopefully will take classes there and possibly join a dance group. We shall see.

I really just wanted to say hi, and also that George W. Bush looks like a monkey on crack : )


current mood: tired

Hey everyone!

This is my first time posting and I just wanted to start off my saying how AWESOME it is that there is a community for radical dancers!! This is totally the community for me. I'm a 20/f university student from NYC currently studying in the UK for the year. At my uni in the states, I'm a member of the Dance Theatre Group, which is a mostly modern based group and since there is no dance program here, I'm missing it a lot. When I get back next year, I'm thinking about choreographing a piece that expresses my feelings about globalization and the suffering of oppressed minorities and those being persecuted for their beliefs around the world today.

i <3 dance sooo much! thanks for creating this group :)

Ok, SO...

I am extending my deepest regrets and sympathy to those of you living in the US - there's a couch in my house in Canada for anyone who wants it,. but as per candyprisonbars's last post, I encourage you to stay and fight. I will come and fight.

In the meantime, these are some wonderful words of wisdom courtesy the lovely Margaret Cho.

Love to you all,
