i don’t know if i’m the only one on this but i know i’m watching a good dancer when you’re living vicariously through him/her at that moment of the performance.
it’s beyond good musicality and technique; it’s about marrying the two, and reaching deep inside to portray honest movement, committing to it, and telling you a story. it’s cathartic to watch a good dancer perform, even if you’re just sitting and observing. it’s just one kind of a shiok feeling; like even though i know my limits and could never replicate that; i appreciate it so much.
here’s a kudos to all great dancers out there who have inspired me. thank you for bundling up the music, the emotions, the movement, translating it to something unique to yourself, and sharing it with us through dance.
and IT GETS ME ALL EXCITED TO SEE THAT THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT DANCERS IN SG!
