A Tinge of Nostalgia

Reminiscing the days where I was still an insanely active dancer – and decided to upload the choreography collabo piece which Rasul and I did for NUS Dance Blast’s 2011 concert!! (When I was still in year 2 going on year 3 and had a hell lot of time to dance.)

Truth is, I think this was my favourite choreography ever. I don’t think I can ever replicate something I like so much anymore — probably because I’d used all my favourite songs (at that point) in one item.

Good ol’ days ^^

#Firstworldproblems

Touched down from Copenhagen in the morning and headed straight for dance rehearsals after a quick nap! Had sooo much to catch up with, plus it’s the last rehearsal for the alumni item today. Wearing our club’s yellow shirt with its (now) faded prints and dancing in the open air in University Town brought back a wave of nostalgia. Come support NUS DANCE BLAST!’s very own annual Exxon-Mobil Campus Concert next week! Admission is free but you’ll need to queue up early or we’ll run out of tix.

Shut Up and Dance

Remember this? My favourite NUS Dance Blast Shut Up and Dance (SUAD) Concert 2011 choreography by Xuzi, Erwin and Kevin. This video was taken (by Ulrica!!) during one of our last few vetting sessions with April Rodriguez, Joesar Alvar and Pat.

It was a flurry of costume changes (twice during the 5-minute item), and running left right centre to get to our positions, but nonetheless we had awesome choreographers who guided us along and gave us the best tips and advice we could ever get from our seniors.

In the same year we did April and Joesar’s collabo piece as a 10th anniversary special item.

And also the killer finale item by our blast father Pat, which required even more hurried costume changes and running everywhere.

This year, for our Blast EMCC we’ll be putting up the alumni item, where some of us graduated (Blast-eds) are coming back with a piece. Reliving the good ol’days of dancing as a team and slogging it out at the arts campus’s AS7. Really looking forward to EMCC 2014, not entirely because I miss performing and the stage… I really miss those days where we could dance without a care in the world, and spend all our after-school hours training for a concert.

Thank you for the good memories ^^
