Yet another addiction of mine–Travelling

Currently located in New York. Last Sunday we went to Stamford for Tri-State Challenge (a Latin& Ballroom dance competition). Was dancing 20 dances – well technically 4 categories doing all 5 dances in each. As I lack partner I joined Mrs Chong in dancing in Professional-Amateur category. First Open comp and I managed to get 18 firsts and 2seconds in my 20 dances!

The travelling of this Easter holiday (which I am currently on) its itinerary has changed for the 7th time already! Still enjoy travelling though wish I have no exams at the end of it! Great excuse for travelling is BUSINESS! :->

My other addiction…. theatre

I love the theatre. Whether watching a production or teching one. For those who knows little in terms of theatre please me describe. General speaking tech theatre is separated into 4 different areas: Design, Stage Management, Lighting and Sound.

It is rather obvious what Lighting and Sound does. They design it, another group of people rig what is designed (usually lack of crew means designer does the rigging too), yet another person operated the lighting board during the performances (usually not the designer but one of those who helped to rigged), and I missed out the designer programme the lighting board in terms of which cue has which light on a certain level to achieve certain effects.

Sound- well the “design” the sound in terms of speakers placed at certain place or number of speaker to achieve certain effects. Research and get sound effects.

Stage management: well, this is a very vague area. As the SM team does everything else excluding operating the LX (lighting) board or the Sound desk. This includes props making/finding/buying, helping to paint or create the set, invent new ways to solve a problem on stage instantaneously, making sure most of the cast and more importantly all the crew are happy, cueing the show and rehearsals, making sure rehearsals and performances run very smoothly, try to compromise between director and the budget! And so the list goes on…. But you should have a good idea the stuff involves.

If you are someone who learns very quickly I think tech theatre holds a lot of benefit in terms of learning people management, time management, stress management and how to react responsibly and instantly. That’s how I learnt and still am! Great fun, lots of work (mentally and physically) and lots to learn!

Future Social Sec or photomaniac??

This is only my third lesson missed so far since I came to Warwick. I came along to classes every week with only 3 exceptions, even though I might not have been feeling up for dancing every week I still came along to see my friends. Friends that I have met through this club and from fencing! (There is a strange link between Fencing and Latin and Ballroom dancing.) Apologies for not being here today due to my commitment in the Tap Show and Hot Mikado. Ensuring those in the show that they will have some lights and sound to dance and sing to.

I have been to every comp this year. Support our team even though I never get any further than a maximum of 2 rounds in any of them! I still went along to every comp to support our team, to support YOU. To cheer you on and take MANY photos for you which most of them are now on my blog though due to lack of time or rather sleep I haven’t quite managed to up-load the ones from Sheffield and Nottingham fully yet. Though, I promise that they WILL be here before the end of term.

I love dancing. I am addicted to dancing. I hope that if you vote for me as a social sec so we could have more opportunities to dance outside of classes and comps (not to say that dancing in classes and comps are not fun!). Just more chances to dance in a relax atmosphere with music and a dance floor. To show off what we have learnt!

I will end with a wish of mine: I wish that there are less carpeted floors around so we could dance in more placed and more often!

The ridicule of dancing

Just to show my dedication or rather addiction to dancing that I have been get up at 8:30 or 9:30am for more that 5 morning in a row to go dancing! Sam worked out that we danced for 12 hours last week! It was fun… sometimes tiring…. Getting up so early and yet still dancing till late at night. I suppose it is the addiction of it that keeps you going! Plus having a bunch of friends mad enough to get up so early with you to dance! It is a good for me that I actually get up in the morning looking forward to something I enjoy before having a few hours that I usually spend sleeping to work (or to write a blog entry!)

Dancing is addictive. Once you know you can dance you just want to DANCE. I am not saying it is easy. Latin and Ballroom is very technical and it is that you spent so long learning and now you can fun just dancing it! :>

Well I have to get up for 8:10 am to meet up and go to Sheffield for a competition! And guess what the competition is Latin and Ballroom dancing!
