I spent some time at the gym and came up with this choreography. It is a real freedom to dance this piece. This stretching room gives me inspiration somehow… Which is awesome since it’s 2 min away from my apartment door.
Team Levels at Stockholm Dance Team learned this combo last Sunday – it’s a perfect match for them. I love dancing it now, but I will get tired of it like a favorite hit song. But that ain’t now. I’m going to stop talking – you enjoy the video!
Hey! Monday is here and it feel grrrrreat! I am still excited after yesterday… Feels so relieving to be back teaching and working. Almost all classes are back on. Only Move2Dance left.
Team Upgrade and Team Levels had their first classes for the semester yesterday. It was so great to see my girls again and I my goodness I felt like a little grandma… My chickens are getting taller, they are growing up and they have all developed their dancing skills. My goodness I’m proud… It was so exciting to see new faces also. Our sisterhood is growing!
I feel greatly sore in my legs today. But I think I’m going to take a visit to the gym. I feel like giving myself that treat …And then eat pizza afterwards! Or Burger King… Haven’t decided yet.
Friday is down to it’s final minutes. I’ve had my classes at FLEX and I felt gooooood. What is it to say, really? A few nails almost broke in the 5-6 y/o class when we were doing gymnastics – some are bendable now… Ouch! I can’t imagine not working at Flex, like what? It’s so obvious! I really, truly love it! To be honest guys, I’m really tired so giving you tons of details of today will only end of being a speech of gibberish. Though I’m looking forward on getting back to my boss tomorrow – it seems like we might get together a Hiphop crew for competitions that will represent Flex. Cross your fingers!
Yesterday was both great and.. and things got totally unacceptably weird. My care for my students safety became very clear yesterday. When I say safety, then I mean emotional safety. Of course it was important before, but yesterday it really became in my face. I am not going to go into detail of what exactly happened. But what I’m going to focus on is I’m really grateful that things became so clear as they did yesterday – this means we understand each other better, my girls knows how I resonate plus what is okay vs not okay. I will set some ground rules so we all have a solid safe foundation to stand on.
Yesterday I had a private lesson and then class with Team Advanced. I’ve noticed I’m getting a bit harder and stricter – not in a mean or an uncomfortable way though. But it feels like I’m getting more things done now. I’m developing! Meeting my girls was great, there were a couple ones that were on a try-out for the Team. They are both cute and hopefully we’ll have these two different talents and interesting personalities in our group.
I will soon be on my way to FLEX. Friday love! Their second week for the semester… It’s nice to be on the go again. Well, I’m off! Still wearing my “Nap Queen” sweatshirt, so that needs to change. Talk to you guys later.
When I woke up this morning I could barely wait to get my butt to the studio. Though my body haven’t felt so well for the last couple of days, so I was a bit worried for not being able to work today. But the adrenaline of going to Marikas made it all better.😍 The first thing that popped into my mind when I came into the door was home. Ain’t that nice, huh? It smelled just the same as it did when I was 13, 14 and 15 years old. Which was a huge nostalgia. It all started at Marikas so it is pretty amazing to come back and continue where the roots are.
I got there early to just enjoy the atmosphere… (cheesy) but also to choreograph, I swear! I danced for like an hour, ate dinner with a dear friend at the pizzeria (that is on the same street.. how awesome isn’t that??? I’m a real pizza lover). The one thing we always do for sure is showing each other memes that reminds us of one another. Meme addicts? Yep. I also performed my sweet cheer routines I did on the last episode of 100% Vaken …and I have never seen someone cringe so much.😂 I love making people cringe.❤
It was a perfect timing to have that dinner because after that I had a 2 hour private lesson. It was nice to see so much improvements in one session. I’ve said this a thousand times, at least to myself but I would like to take more classes. At least practice more for myself than “only” for the reason of preparing classes. I think this will change a lot now when I’m back at Marikas. I see so much brightness infront of me!
Why can’t time go any faster? I want to get to Thursday and have my class with Team Advanced. I looked over my plan for the lesson and put more details into to make it a real kickstart. Now I am so ready and I don’t know what to do with myself – I love the choreography we’re going to do and I can’t stop dancing it. The sweet thing about Team Advanced is that I really need to ransack and push myself, specially now we are going to have more lecture’s into the course. I love it!! One thing I’ve noticed about myself is that I feel way more confident and relaxed this semester. Like totally calm. I know what I’m doing. This fall was Stockholm Dance Team’s first semester so of course it is a bit shaky when it’s all new.
From a weekend at my friend’s collage.
Thursdays lecture is going to be about building your own brand, social media, finding your audience, promoting yourself and how to get noticed without contacts. I’m excited and ready, obviously. In my case it is important to be prepared so I have structure since I’m a real chatterbox. I’m going to keep it down to 15 minutes, because I want the last 15 free to rehearse or have them stretch. But mostly why I can’t wait until Thursday is because I genuinely have missed my girls!
Hey guys! Well just as the headline says – here is the top 5 songs I’m (constantly) listening too. Maybe we have the same taste? If you take my classes then you’ll be able to sing these in your sleep when this semester is over.
1. Say You Won’t Let Go – James Arthur
2. Shape of You – Ed Sheeran
3. Solo Dance – Martin Jensen
4. Paris – The Chainsmokers
5. All Night – Chance The Rapper ft. Knox Fortune
This Top 5 thing is fun! I’m going to do some more… I’ll get back to you!
Things are heavy in the family since a dear member have left for another dimension. My grandmother’s brother who was close to us all is no longer in his physical body. Times like these I’m happy that I got my little gift – to hear, feel and see what others may not. I’m glad I can be a support for the ones mourning. Though it’s a weird thing to see energy. It’s a weird thing to hear someone talking by giving you inner pictures and by using your own feelings. It’s weird to feel smells, presences and even touch things that gives you another persons memory. It’s all weird. Still, I’m not used to it. Still, I haven’t accepted it. But days like these – it’s a gift.
I am now in our apartment in the city, but I want to go back to our peaceful country house by the stables with all those pretty trees and hills. Times like these, all you want is some quietness and rest. A rest from all the weirdness, but yet you wanna learn more about it and yet you want your own time to mourn.
