I remember about a year ago I heard of "Chicago" and i thought it was some fancy-schmanzy movie that only big city people would enjoy. Well then this Dvd company that i was signed up for sent us the dvd and if we didnt send it back soon enuf (without it being opened) we would have to buy it. Well we were lazy and had to end up buying it. I finally decided I'll give in when my views on arts and stuff changed like 2 months after that. I loved it so much. I'm not good at art can't sing can't write poetry but I love to watch and see other people do that stuff. But yah I was glad taht happened too otherwise i prly wouldnt like another movie that is my favorite ..."Rocky Horror Picture Show"!!

Help i need song suggestions!!

Hey dancers!

For my high school dance company the theme for the next show is " i love the . . ." and we are doing songs through the decades. There only get to be a few songs for each decade. I was thinking about choreographing a group piece. I wanted it to be jazzy and to a cute smiley song thats fast and easy to dance to. I have a few songs that i can think of at the moment but i really need some help thinking. So if you know any cute fast songs from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90's, please feel free to comment! Ill take any suggestions!
Thanks so much!

OKay i need some help

Hey dancers

I thought i would write becuase im having some Dancers block ( LOL). The company intro for our concert is to wierd science. We each get a two 8 count solo. The concert is in about 17 days. Today in class my instructor said that we need to make more creative solos that show our talent, not just kicks and things that everyone can do. And my solo included stuff that would fit into the everybody category. So i was wondering if anyone had any ideas or suggestions for some things that i could add into my solo

These are some things that i can do well
* High kicks
* Righ split leaps ( left is okay)
* Spread leaps
* Tumbling ( ariels, backwalk overs, back handprings, etc etc )
* and all your normal dance things

I have to go across the stage from the left to right, and i also wanted to do something cute in there.

The solo i had before was chase spread leap, turn out, kick, left/ right hip, chase step right leap off.
Yeah i know, really basic, but we had to make it up in 10 minutes so thats all i came up with.

If anyone has any ideas i would really apreciate it!!!
Thanks
