Concept/Dance Video Journal Entry 1
Date: June 3 2010
The idea was to make a video that will benefit people. I wanted a video to allow people to feel inspired and motivated to do whatever they want in life. I’ve gone through an amazing year in dance and I just want to share that journey with everybody. After doing some solo performances in the neighborhood, I performed to a song that received some attention and it turned out that people like the dancing as well, so that spurred me to pitch this idea to bring a random performance into a DANCE VIDEO. Again, this video is intended to help people. I have no need in making a video for myself; Thats not what’s driving me to make this. I’m driven’ by the people, driven by my peers, driven by my family, BUT MOST OF ALL DRIVEN BY GOD. Spiritually, this video is what got me here to make a dance video.
I went to the studio to put together choreography. At the end of the night I was very pleased on how some things came together. The first journal entry shows only some of the choreography of the final product. Its not all waving/animation. I just want to show just enough that doesn’t give away the whole final concept video. Some of the stuff is just “whatever” cause some of those clips are just me thinking of what moves to create. I guess that means not all of the stuff you see are for sure going to be in the final movie. MORE TO COME. next entry will be coming soon.

Have we forgotten about Our First LOVE….?
Have we forgotten about GOD…?
Is it because we are so caught up with this world?
this is a talk given by one of my best friends/roommates/motivator… he inspires me and gets me through alot of my struggles. He can also help you. I’d struggled with my dancing. I struggled with getting a job, but after living with him for a year and knowing him most of my life, he has helped me conquer the most challenging things that I had to go through as a young adult. Why? cause in the past I was too caught up living the WORLD’s perspective on how to live. With God I have purpose (that’s another blog i should get into) Now, I’m living for God, and he has blessed me with opportunities to help people through my dance
but here is a talk about the great Love of God
It was AWESOME, finally been consistent with dance, been freestylin’, sessioning, teaching, TAKING CLASS, but most importantly sharing knowledge with my peers.
yesterday, awesome another 2 class day. Mari’s at 6:30. Went to the studio right after work. I THANK GOD THAT I’M NEVER TIRED AFTER LEAVING WORK SO I COULD WORK ON MY TALENT. She did a piece to Temper Trap - sweet disposition, she was like ‘its from 500 days of summer’ then i got excited. epic. Then Vihn class at 7:30. execution and performance was his main thing that day, and it was fun cause i like footwork.
I teach, and my little 9 year old is starting to make her own tuts and waves. Shes freestylin on her own. That just validates that I should keep teaching and i love teaching, and my other class is preparing to do a show in may.
Got back to sessionin with Dnoi, ellis, and everyone at pac arts. Totally got more foundation to my arsenal of movement when it came to poppin’. there is always something new to learn
as for my peers, i’ve been running into my fellow dancers, and tell them what GOD does in my life (CAREER AND DANCE ESPECIALLY) so i can motivate them to follow their dreams. THATS THE BEST PART OF MY DAY IS TALKING TO MY PEERS ABOUT GOD. People are surprised about how my walk is so strong with the lord these days compared to a few years ago. THEN I GIVE THEM THE 101 on my life and they are touched cause the past year was my the hardest of my life, and I conquered it with GODs help. This story of my life is a long long talk. so thank you everyone who had a open ear for my words of wisdom the past few weeks
Be consistent with your life, the improvement may be fast, it may even be slow, but always never give up…everything will get easier the more you love it. There will be struggle and pain, but the love with get you through it. never give up the fight!
This book can change your life. Not only will it make a difference in your life in a positive way, but also you can be a miracle for people in this world by giving a helping hand.
its our purpose to do something
So I took 2 dance classes today, Mari’s and Vingh’s. Apparently I need more conditioning, or their dance classes are extra tiring. I almost couldn’t breath after Vingh’s class. Actually talked to Mari for a bit, we talked about dancing to tegan and sara. Hopefully, she will be inspired by their music, and make a piece to them. After class, I was drenched in sweat, and quickly gone through my whole bottle of water halfway through my first class!!! WHHHHHHHHHHAT, I’m thirsty. This will be a chronic habit. This will be on a weekly basis. Hopefully i’ll work up to 3 classes in a row, or three classes a week, maybe even four.
After today, i’ve notice pain is inevitable. Reaching your full potential isn’t suppose to be a walk in the park. I’m not going to let my condition to get tired easily stop me to get me to where I’m suppose to be. I’m still going to persevere cause I know my body can still handle this pain, cause the “love” of this talent will help me overcome the evils of this world, and also help others overcome their inner demons. That’s why I’m still fighting!!!! This is what I LOVE
That is why we need to use our gifts that God has given us, we are no mistake in our creation, we are made for a reason, TO OVERCOME THE DEVIL! our gifts will guide people out of trouble. One of my gifts is dance, and one day I want to lead our youth to a better future through dance. Some people’s gifts are to talk, or listen, whatever your gifts are, use it for the greater good, and you will see yourself fight for your goals through another level, you will accelerate your work ethic in what you want to do…
cause your not getting better for yourself, BUT FOR OTHERS, you offer your gifts as gifts to others. That’s whats going to make you persevere
