What’s good you guys!!! I figured I would share this episode of the studio session – vlog style. Join me as I spend the afternoon with my friend Belle in the studio! I wanted to challenge myself to choreograph, teach and film a combination within an hour. Here’s the result from this challenge as I choreograph to Manicure by Lady Gaga. Follow along to see the outcome! If you like these kinds of videos let me know in the comments below!
I had the idea to start these studio sessions last year. The general concept is that I meet up with a dancer. I freestyle choreograph, teach and film all within an hour. It forces me to be creative on the spot and avoid overthinking. I’ve struggled with this in the past and figured this would help. It challenges me creatively speaking and keeps me sharp. I like trying different styles depending on the dancer. I like giving them a challenge by teaching choreography in a lesser preferred style.
Belle is a contemporary dancer with experience in other styles such as burlesque, musical theater and jazz. I chose this song because I am literally obsessed with it. Ever since it came out I knew that I wanted to choreograph to it. Belle did such an amazing job learning as well as performing this routine. Show her some love in the comments!
