Dance Word of the Week!

Since my blog is dance and fitness related I decided to start doing dance terminology. These words will come from every style of dance, but today’s word which is a Ballet term; is the most basic and general term every dancer learns within their first two minutes of ballet class.

 

Plié

Which means: to bend

most commonly you stand in a turned out position, and you bend your knees and then straighten them again. There is two different variations of a plié.

A demi plié: a little bend of the knee. You would bend your knees as much as you could without your heels coming off the floor. Which is what makes it a small bend.

grand plié: A full bending of the knee. You go all the way down and your heels do come off the floor for this one, the only position, where your heels wouldn’t come off the floor is second position.

Dance Photo Shoot

Hey guys, so my dance photo shoot hasn’t happened yet. It rained all week, and will be raining most of this week, but unfortunately now i have a a terrible sunburn so i don’t think it would’ve happened this week anyways.

I just want you guys to know that it will be happening sometime in the near future. I’m so excited for it to be happening and to share all the pictures!

Welcome to My Life!

Hi everyone!

My blog is here to share with you all about my life! I want this to help me with my professional career. So my first post here is all about what i want to be sharing with you.

  1. My fitness lifestyle: When i go to the gym, i mainly do power lifting style workouts, and i would like to share with you all about what i am doing at the gym, what i eat, stretches, and my day to day program. Which will hopefully benefit others in helping with what they can do in the gym. And how to live a healthier lifestyle.
  2. My dance and choreography: I am a college student, and i’m a performing arts major. Which means i love theatre and dance (obviously). I hope to one day be in the entertainment business doing anything i can relating to the arts. And a big part of that for me is being a choreographer. So i would love to post my ideas, and pieces i’ve choreographed to benefit me. One, by seeing how i improved and two, for others too see and maybe want me to do some choreography for them!

So there you have it! That’s the main purpose behind this blog and yes i think i will be posting other things here and their, but i mainly want to stick to what i intentionally made this blog for! And i hope you all benefit from this cause i know i will!
