spotlight

Welcome to my Spotlight Sunday! Every Sunday I put someONE or someTHING I love IN the Spotlight!

Anyone is welcome to use the idea on their own blog and spotlight whoever or whatever THEY choose, but if you do, please use my lovely graphic that my friend made somewhere in your post to show that the idea came from here! And I would love it if you left the link in my comments, so I could go check out what YOU spotlighted!

Last minute decision on what to spotlight here but due to watching some singing and dancing last night, I have dancing on my mind a lot. I use to dance in a group about 5-6 years ago and now I just dance for fun a little bit. I’m definitely not amazing at it; it’s just something I find fun. I really enjoy watching professional dancers cause I appreciate all the hard work that goes into dance and I think Dancing as an art form is beautiful. So…I have decided to Spotlight Dance today and I will do so by sharing some of my favorite videos of Dancing. Whether you’ve seen any of these videos or not before, I hope you enjoy anyways as I have enjoyed them! 🙂

This first video is from So you think you can Dance? I had never watched the show when I first saw this video and it got me hooked on the show. It’s not only the dancing that makes this so great but the customing as well.

The next video is so much fun because it’s so unique! If you haven’t seen this video of Ok Go’s “Here it goes again”, then this is a definite must watch!

Next, we have a video showcasing the talents of The League of Extraordinary Dancers. You’ll have to watch to see why they so deserve this name.

THIS video had me hooked when I found it years before David Guetta was such a well known name in the U.S.  Some people may not consider Parkour dancing but in this video, it sure works! (You have to wait 40 seconds in for the dancing to start,fyi)

Last, but not least, here’s a performance from the first group to ever win “America’s Best Dance Crew” who first appeared on “America’s Got Talent”, JabberWockeeZ. This is a performance they did for “America’s Got Talent” after they were famous.

Now I will leave you with this beautiful quote about dancing.

“The Dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music, and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable. Dancing is poetry with arms and legs.” -Charles Baudelaire



Yesterday and today’s prompt on The Daily Post sounded fun to me so I thought I would do them for my post today!

Write a haiku about something that drives you nuts. | The Daily Post at WordPress.com.

Dishes are evil

Why can’t they just wash themselves?

They give me headaches

Not the best Haiku in the world but I hate doing dishes with a passion. Not a huge fan of cooking either but partly because there’s always dishes! If dishes would magically wash themselves, I would love to cook more.

What was your favorite class in college? | The Daily Post at WordPress.com.

My favorite class was definitely Acting class. I started off college as a shy Music Major and when I built up the confidence to try out for a singing/dancing group there, I also decided to try out an Acting class. For fun and because I always secretly wanted to and never had the guts. I fell in love with Acting and I look back and wish I had gotten into it sooner.

I still to this day freak out at the thought of speaking in front of an audience or giving a speech, but acting in a play? It makes me a little nervous but it’s the good kind. It’s an adrenaline rush. I love the feeling of getting to play pretend for awhile. When you’re on that stage, you are no longer YOU. All the problems in your life at the moment are pushed off on the back burner. Your whole focus is on your character and somehow taking on a new persona makes me forget that underneath the character, I am still ME in front of an audience speaking. The fear subsides. It’s a feeling for years that I wish I had known before. I had sang in front of people and had a taste of it which is part of why I loved and still love to sing so much. I had no idea that acting was even more a step up from that feeling. And when I was in A.C. Singers, my friends saw a different Sharon. The same girl who would barely say hi and I’m fine was on stage singing and dancing with a huge smile on her face.

I majored in Theatre because I learned that it’s not just singing I love. I love performing. I KNOW that I was born to be a performer.

Problem is, things in my life have kept me from going after my dream….but I guess that’ll be another post…

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
