    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=___l8Y21yNM
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skoNpAZkOJ0
    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

    Oh calm yourself I forgot all about mah clubs yesterday and read your post right before I went to bed. It was masterful, as usual, but I didn't have the energy to reply to it so I put it off til this morning. It's the next item on my agenda after this VM!

    Also do you not know what Ladette to Lady is?! It's another thing from your turf! I swear I know England better than the English do. I suppose you don't watch Escape to the Country either...?

    You'd better at the very least like my spirit sister Lily Allen...

    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.

    That's terrible! And after I offered to protect you from bullies! You've hurt Daddy's feelings

    I'm glad you're happy about sounding like Daniel Radcliffe! I've actually physically heard our Mr Cat Dog speak and he legitimately does sound like Daniel Radcliffe, voice, accent and all - yet whenever I bring it up he visibly stiffens or changes the subject. He is a bad Englishman and you must teach him how to English correctly.

    Oh . I'm disappointed that you didn't spit on me. While that would have been an incredibly mean-spirited thing to do, the Barrels I would have created would have been taught better manners than that and therefore would have been a version of you that was both younger and better behaved. He then would have grown up to teach elecution lessons on the 2043 season of Ladette to Lady. Oh well, I guess those old women will get to keep their jobs after all.

    If anybody punches you out, you just come tell me and I'll sort them out. Nobody's gonna harm you and get away with it . You're gonna be one of those deliriously over-confident kids at school who believe they are absolutely infallible because all you come home and hear is "you're the best, Daddy loves you. You're the best, Daddy loves you." and I'll be DAMNED if anybody is gonna take that away from my little man!

    (I'm not sure where in this scenario I became your father, but lets roll with it)

    And you said you looked like Darren Criss, so basically in my head you look like Darren Criss and sound like Daniel Radcliffe. I would like to be proven wrong on both counts as soon as possible kthx

    and LMAO. I had no idea about the whole Elizabeth thing, that's so amazing. What an amazing reason for hatred of ALL THE MUGGLE-BORNS lmao.

    You have to teach me to speak like you. You have all these subtle Britishisms in your speech that just make it a delight to read. YOUR VMs ARE THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY DAY.

    ~So pleease don't take my sunshine away~

    *ahem* yes, the Great British Summer, where more than three days of 33C heat is considered a 'heat wave'. Meanwhile, in the Great Australian Summer, 33C is the norm and every degree above is just a sizzling, sweating bonus. I feel such sympathy for you and your Great British Summer

    I'm more bummed than you know about the picture thing. I am never going to see my very own British Darren Criss, am I? AM I?

    And yeah, I did ask in the Harry Potter thread lmao - not sure if you saw. I haven't been back to the club since to check, but I hope the mystery can soon be put to rest!

    Yes, the nasty Slenderman scurrd me

    Why were you at the beach?! It's England! Englishmen don't go to the beach! You better have taken pictures though, that's what the beach is for!

    And lmao I can't explain who Elizabeth is either. I had that same problem. Maybe one of us should ask

    Seriously... ****in' Slenderman. Have you seen that ****? It's horrible. I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight. It's worth about seventeen hippos made of nightmares.

    Also for somebody who is so proud to be a Muggle you sure neglect the Harry Potter club that NEEDS YOU!

    No you may not be a chicken. You may stay a Muggle or pick a house! This is Harry Potter, not Animal Crossing!

About Me

    Biography
    I was born. Then I grew up. But that wasn’t fun, so I grew back down again and started catching Pokémon.

    Most people are decent - and the more friends you make, the better life gets. So if you'd like to say hi, go ahead and do that thing! ;)
    Interests
    I like creating. Writing, drawing, vidding, programming… you name it, there’s a good chance I’ve failed abysmally at it. (Probably had fun though.)

    In general? Philosophising about stuff I’ll never know, reading Brian Michael Bendis, ordering things I have no need of from Amazon, arting around in Photoshop and watching old Munsters episodes. Not all at the same time.
    Location

    Favorite Pokémon
    Snorlax. Since forever. I used to dream about getting a big ol’ Snorlax-shaped beanbag.

    …Who am I kidding? I *still* dream about that.
