It’s true when they say “once a dancer, always a dancer”. You can’t help but miss those endless nights of blood, sweat, and tears rehearsing. After years of practice, it’s no wonder these things come naturally. Only a dancer – past or present – that can relate things that you can relate if you’re classical dancer
- No matter what dance you learning, your friends and family think Kathak, Kuchipudi and Kathakali is the same?
- Tapping your foot in public: admit it, intentionally or unintentionally, you always find your feet tapping, regardless of where you are.
- “I can’t come, I have rehearsal,” is your patent excuse for not hanging out with friends and family.
- Suffer the serious consequences of taking time off. One rehearsal missed and you will regret for weeks.
- The jitters before every performance. No matter how many times you perform, nervousness hits you before stepping onto the stage.
- That sweet sound of your ghungroos and foot tapping is your ultimate melody.
- That feeling you have when you have danced perfectly in sync with the musicians. Yippee
- Every song you listen to—live or recorded, classical or western—you start choreographing in your head and fill in some of your moves into it.
- Every performance means a new costume for you…
