If It Kills Me…

July 15th, 2009 by Jules Leave a reply »
As I have said many times before, I LOVE dance. Dance saved my life in so many different ways, some of which I have already shared on my blog. My love of dance helped me find the strength and the will to get out a wheelchair three years ago, all because I had an audition that I needed to get to. Dance is this amazing thing that melds story telling with music and movement. We all move. We all have our own unique musical beats. We all tell stories. When you melt those three things together, magic happens. Dance can break down walls which we create within ourselves and within our global communities. I cannot think of a single culture that is without dance. Before words were spoken to tell stories, we had dance to tell stories. Dance to this day remains an important part in many cultures to tell their stories.

I have also said many times, I LOVE So You Think You Can Dance. It is so being freaking amazing that we now have a show that displays this beautiful art form that does not get enough recognition and is so under appreciated. There is not a single episode that does not move me to great emotional states: from extreme joy to great despair. Tonight was no different.

One of my most favourite dancers ever finally had his chance to choreograph for the show, Travis Wall. He was the runner up on Season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance. I believe this number will be my favourite number of all time. It spoke to more than any number ever has. It is a struggle I have gone through myself. It is eloquent. It is raw. It is gentle. It is real. It is perfect. I will let the rest speak for itself.
