Last weekend I attended an AMAZING event run by Alexis Southall in Wolverhampton - 12 hours of workshops with Samantha Emanuel and Manca Pavli. We all know Sam is pretty damn awesome, but I had never met or learnt from Manca before, and I have left so crazy motivated and excited about being a Tribal Fusion Dancer.
Manca is not only crazy talented, but she's thumping in a theme I am finding in my adventures at the moment - everything has to be FUN, otherwise you just won't do it. I won't draw if it's not fun, I won't dance if it's not fun.
I tend to think that you won't get anywhere unless you work hard, and work hard = not fun. But as I am slowly learning with Art (ie only do fun art, duh) I have to do fun Dance, or else I will lose my love of it!
Other than completely refreshing my approach to dance (let's go!!!) I learnt loads of awesome moves and theories that I have already started appropriating into my own dances. Zing!
Manca better come back soon, otherwise it's off to Slovenia for me.
