Center Stage

Friday, February 26, 2010

Maybe it's because I've been listening to Center Stage's soundtrack (one of my favorite movies, btw). Maybe it's because I've passed by the Joyce Theater in SoHo lately a lot. Maybe it's because I recently discovered old music tapes from when I was a toddler taking tap dance lessons & performing. Whatever it may be, I've been inspired by ballet/lyrical/modern dance lately.

I envy how flexible these dancers are and how magical it must be to leap through the air, performing with others on a beautiful set stage - with all the lights & the eager audience in awe. I just love the flowy movements, brilliant transitions, and how you can just FEEL the emotion through dance. It's just amazing.

I am definitely going to plan to see a show (or more!) this spring.

Dancers are so incredibly graceful. I was a gymnast and competitive cheerleader in high school, but never acquired that grace! I love "Center Stage" as well -- one of my favorite movie soundtracks.

I was dancing and learning about the ballet few years ago. I love watching it but I don't have the best memories about this kind of classy dance.
