    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.

    Ballet or Pointe: This is a personal favorite of mine- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtVl2Q9v8hA
    Tap: Sounds like it wouldn't fit tap, but trust me, I love it. xD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dxmf2o3GotY
    Jazz: For contemporary jazz, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sNi9nIXxVo.
    For classical jazz- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aF2EV93s6Yk.
    For "jazz funk"- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-HSlgjLfdg

    There's so many other variations of jazz, but those are the main ones I do. Anyway, continuing. xD

    Hip Hop: I can do some mean choreography to more "pop-ish" artists like Beyonce, Destiny's Child, etc. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_y3MdOxtL0
    Or if it's more like hardcore hip hop- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaaKglEVgUI

    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.

    For Modern, you can pretty much use anything, but I prefer instrumental. My favorite so far is the song we used for recital this year. http://www.last.fm/music/Oliver+Kraus/_/Kalimbeth

    And last but not least, Lyrical. The music would be preferably slow, and it has to display great emotion. Some songs I like:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_U6iSAn_fY
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_9sd6kGRuk

    One of these days, I'll get around to filming my own choreography. I have little mini combinations in my head for almost all of these songs. I just need to stop being lazy and finish them. xD

    If you can't tell, I love talking about dance. xD

    Oh, and wolves and banjos a bonus? How about just banjos?
    Pretty good for a lyrical- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tL_Ye0h5xEI

    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.

    You had a dance intensive? :O I assume that means lots of crazy footwork atop steeples and town halls? During the dead of night? While a wolf played the banjo in accompaniment, never stopping, never slowing?

    TELL ME MORE. ;D

    It goes exceedingly speedily, thanks for asking. YOU KEEP DISAPPEARING IT'S PLAYING HAVOC WITH MY ANTICIPATION GENES

    ...Also I read your VM in a Tommy Wiseau voice. Was that intentional?
