Elysium Cabaret April 19th 2019 Show

It was time to dress up to the nine and slip into your limo for the ride to the elegant Empire Room, high in the sky of Copperhead Road.  Friends and family gathering, looking forward to seeing you, Paul and Jilley waiting to greet you and welcome you with the finest champagne, DJ Gunner’s infectious tunes getting the blood in your veins throbbing with the beat… what a night as you wait for the show to start!

But this does make me wonder.  What exactly does it mean to get dressed up to the nines?  I mean, I know what it means, but where did that expression come from?  Let’s find out.

“To the nine” is an English idiom meaning “to perfection” or “to the highest degree” or to dress “buoyantly and high class”. In modern English usage, the phrase most commonly appears as “dressed to the nine” or “dressed up to the nine”.

The phrase is said to be Scots in origin. The earliest written example of the phrase is from the 1719 Epistle to Ramsay by the Scottish poet William Hamilton:
The bonny Lines therein thou sent me,
How to the nines they did content me.

Robert Burns’ “Poem on Pastoral Poetry”, published posthumously in 1800, also uses the phrase:
Thou paints auld nature to the nines,
In thy sweet Caledonian lines.

The phrase may have originally been associated with the Nine Worthies or the nine Muses. A poem from a 17th century collection of works by John Rawlet contains the following lines:
The learned tribe whose works the World do bless,
Finish those works in some recess;
Both the Philosopher and Divine,
And Poets most who still make their address
In private to the Nine.

Well there is a bit of trivia for you. Now let’s look at the show!

Nara
With Diawa
‘Fall on Me’ by Andrea Bocelli

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
The words, the melody, the inspiration that came to me. I knew when I first heard it that I had to create an act to it. Took a while.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
To create the emotions that the song evokes so people also feel it within. Finding the right animations, timing them was indeed challenging. I hope I succeeded.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
I think it is mainly purely inspirational. When you are perhaps down or want to share something., There is always that special person you can ‘fall on’.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
I knew, right from the start, only one person I could dance this with, my partner of almost 2 years, Diawa. She is my inspiration one that I know I can ‘fall on’.

5. What advice would you give to new dancers?
So important to me is to first ‘feel’ the song. Then everything else will come to you. Choose a song that inspires ‘you’ .

6. Share the love! Who is ONE OF your favorite SL dancers other than yourself?
I think that may be pretty obvious haha.
I hope everyone enjoys my act as much as I am in presenting it to you.

==========================================
Mikiko
With Zena, Eva, Kelly, Grazie and Sarah
(Dance Version) Tokyo Bon

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
OMG it was the funniest and cutest song I found about Japanese people learning English words lol. I just felt I had to do it.

2. What does this dance mean to you?
I love the Japanese culture and this just made me laugh.

3. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
It was just the desire to bring this funny little song to life its so much fun to be able to do that with songs we enjoy.

==========================================
Jo
With Kelly, Corri, Queenie and Nadi
No one knows who I am – Deborah Cox from Jekyll & Hyde

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I’ve wanted to do this song for a long, long time but couldn’t come up with a meaningful concept. Finally I had an idea which I hope works.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Finding dances to fit the tempo of the song was very difficult, especially with two different styles going on at the same time. I think sometimes I didn’t succeed completely in that but hopefully no one minds.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
It’s means a great deal to me actually. It’s very emotional. I think a lot of of people often feel that no one really knows who they are or even cares. It’s about being different, not fitting in, but trying so hard. For a few moments the dancer breaks away and stops pretending. She dances her real feelings, her longings, her dreams. But in the end she falls back into line and puts on her mask again.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
I think I’ve said it all above, probably way too much.

5. What advice would you give to new dancers?
Take it seriously. Have fun but be “professional” about it. Learn as much as you can about the “how to” from others but also observe carefully, especially your own dances. Cam back as if you were the audience. Does your costume fade into the set? Is there something jarring on stage? Check the “big picture” as well as the details.

6. Tell us about any pets you have in real life.
Sadly none at the moment. I’ve had dogs my whole life but it’s not possible right now.

7. What are your other interests in SL outside of dance?
I’ve been involved in the SL Art scene for many years as a gallery owner and curator. Currently I curate the Men in Focus Gallery on the Men in Motion Campus and I’m a longtime member of the Linden Endowment for the Arts Committee. I take photos although not as much as before I took up dancing. Then there’s shopping! Sighs.

8. Share the love! Who is one of your favorite SL dancers other than yourself?
There are so many I could name but for now I’m going to say Jilley Resident. I find her creativity extraordinary and extremely varied, from arty to just plain fun. A very talented woman indeed! Queenie and I often mutter to each other when we see Jilley dance, why do we even bother.

Elysium Cabaret’s Show of April 12th 2019

It was Friday night which means it was another exciting show from Elysium Cabaret, in The Empire Room at Copperhead Road! Paul and Jilley welcomed those who came to rock, and DJ Gunner was spinning fab tunes to get everyone bouncing in their RL seats, The Wiz patrolled the backstage, ironing out pre-show wrinkles. And the best part of the night: The return of Canon’s thong!!!! *bows head and takes a moment of silence*

==========================================
Wiz
With Luna and Nara
Aloe Blacc – I Need a Dollar

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
Well, the time snuck up on my this month, so I reached into my bag o’ sets and came up with this one. I originally performed this March 13 2013. “I Need a Dollar” is a great song that was recorded in 2011 by Aloe Blacc. I used a version made in 2011 where he sings in a small club with a small ensemble of violins and cellos while wearing a tux. It was interesting because the performance contrasted the subject matter of the song so much. So I decided to take it one step further and busk in a tux.

2. What advice would you give to new dancers?
Get involved. Hang out with dancers. Learn to build. Learn to choreograph. Help out when you can. Ask questions. LEARN.

3. Tell us about any pets you have in real life.
Suz and I have a long-haired calico named Pixel. She has a solitary black dot on solid white rear leg, hence the name. I wish I could get away with as much sleep as she does.

4. What are your other interests in SL outside of dance?
I work as a project coordinator and trainer in a small software development shop. I don’t have a lot of spare time but I occasionally teach origami.

==========================================
Sarah
With Ginty Bachem
[GMV] – Levitate

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
The song itself was the main reason as its awesome sauce

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
That truck, that truck failed both days, maybe its too l33t for being audience smacked

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Nah nothing deep and meaningful with it

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Try new things, pray the lag doesn’t totally destroy and have fun

5. What advice would you give to new dancers?
Keep at it and keep trying, you will have some great shows!

6. Tell us about any pets you have in real life.
Wow I got cows, horses, dogs, cats, fish, goats, chickens, oh and ponys 😀

7. What are your other interests in SL outside of dance?
Can’t do much not even work a lot atm on reduced capacity while undergoing tests

8. Share the love! Who is one of your favorite SL dancers other than yourself?
Everyone is different i don’t look for technical or particles as we all have the passion to entertain even in a virtual form, so show what you got and be happy at the end of each show as its you who makes it happen 🙂

==========================================
Dear
Avril Lavigne – Head Above Water


==========================================
Babypea
with Gunner
Where Did You Sleep Last Night – Nirvana

What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
I am haunted by this song so heavily researched it. It is a folk song that goes back at least to the 1870s, and no one knows its origin or meaning. I think it is about a woman who pushed her husband in front of a train to kill him. Maybe he was abusive, maybe she just wanted to be rid of him. But I have thought about it since making this dance, and maybe her husband was lynched and she ran away because she was scared whoever killed him would come after her. I guess we will never know what it really means. But it is haunting.

Share the love! Who is ONE OF your favorite SL dancers other than yourself?
Royal Shippe. He is astonishing, insanely talented, a true artiste, and a visionary. I don’t think he is human, he is more a demi-god to me. I am blown away by what he can do with movers and animations, plus his builds are legendary, his costuming is always eye-popping. He is simply brilliant. And generous… always happy to help, share, and offer advice when asked. I think he is marvellous, and he is one of my fave SL dancers. Other than myself. *snorts*

A Loving Look at Elysium’s Show of April 5th 2019

It was another Friday night, which means friends, family, and new friends to be made gathered in The Empire Room at Copperhead Road to see some of Second Life’s finest stage dancing. DJ Gunner warmed up the crowd with his infectious tunes as Paul and Jilley welcomed arriving guests. The Wiz kept things orderly backstage as dancers warmed up, adjusted costumes and applied their final makeup. A hush fell over the crowd as Wiz made opening greetings and announcements. The Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling” sang over the airwaves and WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND! Let’s take a look at the show and read the comments from some of the talented creators of the fine acts performed tonight!
==========================================
Antonio
It’s no mere coincidence that Ant rhymes with enchant, and enchant he did with this mesmerising metaphoric creation.
Pray – JRY Rooty 50 shades darker

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I’d listened it before, then it started building it’s self in my head, then I realized it was a continuation of my Arsonist Lullaby, I started a little different than that set ended. Also I started finding things in my inventory that let me know this was what I was meant to put out as an artist you sometimes have to listen to your soul when it speaks and gives you all the signs.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Keeping myself out of the fountain when I danced.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
In arsonist Lullaby the demons were controlling me, in this dance I show how I am now the controller of the demons and have more control.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Sometimes things you see on stage, are not always what was meant to happen, as we build behind the scenes there are times we may have one vision but a beautiful accident happens, that happened in a particular spot on this dance sometimes the dance Gods shine upon us.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Timing and getting it to sit with the beat.

MAKING SURE THE 2ND SET APPEARED ON TIME AND THE FIRST SET DISAPPEARED AND THE ANIMATIONS FIT RIGHT IN FROM ONE TO THE OTHER IN A SMOOTH TRANSITION.

3. What does this dance mean to you?
PURELY THE LOVE OF BELLY DANCING AND THE EXOTIC MUSIC THAT GOES WITH IT.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?

Arianna Grande “Bang Bang”

What advice would you give to someone new to dance?
Don’t be afraid to look at the past in order to help improve on who you are. Always ask for help from your fellow dancers. This is a community and a family. We all have started at the beginning and all of us are always learning something new every day. But always remember to have fun.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
This is just a fun set, no deep meaning.

A Penetrating Gaze at Elysium’s Show of March 29th 2019

It was the last Friday of the month, that meant it was a THEME show! The theme being, Elton John/Billy Joel. Either or both! We had some fabulous new acts and some older ones that haven’t been seen in a long time. Take a look at what went down in The Empire Room at Copperhead Road, with your hosts Paul and Jilley and DJ Gunner spinning the tunes, The Wiz wrangling the out of control talent backstage… what a fun night!

Billy Joel – This Night

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
We got a theme for this week Elton John OR Billy Joel. I love them both but I really had a picture in my head of doing at set to Billy Joel’s song “THIS NIGHT.”
It felt very much a 60’s kind of song so made my set to fit the song.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Making sure that the dancers did not run into or over each other since they were moving around very close.

3. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Theme dances are always fun and especially this one so very classic. I love the 50’s and 60’s music.

What advice would you give to someone new to dance?
Sometimes you have to push yourself to be brave enough in order to break your own boundaries. Step beyond your own expectations and fears in order to create something completely unexpected. How can we expand and become more if we don’t allow ourselves to bloom?

Gaelic Storm – Irish Party in Third Class + John Ryan’s Polka


==========================================
Antonio
Two Fuxs – Adam Lambert

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
My inspiration is seeing so many people trying to make others do what they want them to do an live as they want. I think it’s important to live as you want and make yourself happy, that goes for a job a dance a relationship. Live for you not others, unless your other is your family or the person you plan to spend the rest of your life with. Your real friends will stand by you. those that don’t then do you really give two fuxs?

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
I had some scripts in this originally that were non copy causing issues adding to rezzer. I also redid the choreography from the original to eliminate the sliding from a year ago. Funny how much you learn in a year.

3. What does this dance mean to you?
Just a little reminder to find what brings you peace not what others tell you should bring you peace.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Namaste is usually spoken with a slight bow and hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards, thumbs close to the chest. The literal translation of the word “Namaste” breaks down into three sections…Nama means bow; as means I; and, te means you. Thus, I bow to you. The gesture is one of greeting in India. Most often we hold our hands together in the prayer position at our heart chakra.

It actually wasn’t my choice, it was chosen for me! I really do enjoy when people toss something like a song at me and say ‘see what you come up with’!

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Choreographing a group including formations and ALL THOSE MOVERS! That’s a skill I’m working to improve.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Just enjoyment and accomplishment really. Not a lot of deeper meaning than that.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
