Most of my life growing up, a lot of the things that I wanted didn't exist. There was always that extra step with establishing a new platform then executing the idea. Over time I have harnessed a quote that has echoed in my daily grind:
"Just because it hasn't been done doesn't mean it doesn't exist".
You have to introduce the world to YOUR world. It's like when we were kids we build forts out of the things we have in our house. Then we expand on the idea of a fort and we find that the world can offer us so many tools to truly taylor and customize our fort filled with a crowd of stuff animals to a crowd of people having a good time.
I always wanted to be a dancer (except for that one time I wanted to be a host on TRL - shout out to SWAY) but the exposure and the respect for dance was always something that turned me off about the industry. So it became clear to me that I had to build a new fort for dance. As I dive deeper into this freelance world of dance and creative direction, I'm constantly seeking opportunities to merge my media world with my dance world. That's just one of many chapters catered to the growing industry of dance.
Before Thanksgiving break, I had the opportunity to host a dance session with DJ and a creative at Complex Media, Jermaine. Hoping this will be the first of many dance sessions to come at Complex. During a "brick" winter day we warmed up by turning the Complex office space to a dance session.
Here is a visual recap of our dance session with New York Dance Crew, W.A.F.F.L.E (We Are Family For Life Entertainment). A dance crew that specializes in the movement of Lite Feet Dance.
Video of our dance session can be viewed on W.A.F.F.L.E Crews Facebook here.
Thank you Complex & Jermaine.
Special thank you to photographer Maksim Axelrod for capturing the fire dance sesh.
