As far as conversation killers go, try, 'this room's quite rectangular, isn't it?' (Copyright Charlie Brooker, but I'm only borrowing. ) And yay for you, getting accepted and things! I like acceptance. It fills me with a warm glow, which is then usually doused with the cold water of existence. But hey ho.
At least he's your neighbour, though! :D So you're sort of guaranteed to see him lots, right? (Proximity will bring you together. You look at that sentence and tell me I'm wrong.)
Oops, I should have been more clear. I'm not going to be a dance teacher, I'm going to teach high school English! I am going to study dance as a minor, though.
Yeah, a mashup would be fun. It would be almost impossible though. I can always try! Haha. :D I'll definitely film the first few dances out of those I choreograph. I've had a pretty dry period. I just haven't been feeling choreography lately...
So much music! :D I feel like a bloated cat in a cake shop - sampling all these irresistible little cuplinks. But my knowledge has been increased pound for pound! (I kinda had this impression in my head that jazz was a guy with a sax and maybe some tambourines. How wrongy wrong I was.)
I'd never actually thought of anyone dancing to Breathe Me (or Coldplay for that matter), but I can see how that'd work now I think about it. :D Your skillset is wide, m'friend. You should totally do, like, a mash-up of every song you gave me and film it. INTERNET SENSATION AHOY! xD
So you're gonna be a dance teacher? :D That sounds awesome. (Incidentally, I'm picturing it right now as a class of tutus with your avatar up front, despite the fact that I've actually seen a picture of you. xD I dunno.) And that banjo was much appreciated...
Oh lawd, I'm definitely not professional. I have problems with injuries, and there's a good chance I have osteoarthritis in my knees, so I'm physically incapable of keeping up with a professional company, unfortunately. I would have loved to dance for the Joffrey for a few years before beginning my teaching career. :/
As far as music, it's hard to describe. Especially for jazz, because that style of dance can be taken in so many directions. I'll just give you an example for each style of dance I do, haha.
I don't really do Acro a whole lot anymore, because all of my injuries kind of stunted my ability to contort myself like that, but pretty much anything instrumental goes well. I like to use Cirque du Soleil music.
That's... still... like, seven-and-a-half hours. :O I think I'd drop after ten minutes - don't you get tired? (Answer: no, no, of course you don't, because you're all pro and stuff. ) What kinda music do you dance to? Well, jazz, obviously, but give me something I can YouTube. xD Wolves and banjos a bonus...
Well, my studio kind of uses the term "dance intensive" pretty loosely. Dance intensives are usually one week long with classes everyday from somewhere around 7 AM- 4 PM. It's pretty much every style, too. At my studio, it's just two days a week, but you only study one discipline, and the classes are from 3:00-6:45. So instead of spending an hour per class everyday, you're just spending 3 hours and 45 minutes on one class twice a week. I took Jazz, since that's one of my strengths and I wanted to take a somewhat simple class for my last summer.
