May 11th 2018 Show

What a great show this was, so much variety and every dance had something that made it unique and very special! So much talent, I feel so privileged to have such creative and dedicated people sharing their performances on the Elysium stage… in The Empire Room at Copperhead Road sim. Thank you to all our choreographers, dancers, and all the staff who work so hard behind the scenes to bring it all together… Paul Woodrunner, Jilley, The Wiz, DJs Gunner, Corri, and Miss Ame, and MEEEEEEEEEE yes I am in there somewhere! Have a look at the pics and read what some of the choreographers had to say about their dances! Cheers!

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
It is a really fun song and with a variety of music styles in one number. It gives me a chance to be more creative and have everything from Swing, Robot and R & B Animations all in the same dance.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Having 12 men on stage, with 3 groups dancing different animations at the same time. All the animations needed to work with the music and seem to be part of the wider number. Everything had to be part of the one routine.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
This is a fun dance, but this is an updated version of a dance I did a few years ago for Relay for Life Cancer Charity in SL. Now there is more colour and a beach party theme, but it is always an upbeat and fun dance.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
The preparation time back stage to get everyone in the dance onto the right dance huds and the right animations, and on the correct dance movers. It is run with military precision to make sure everyone is right ready for the dance at the start, so then everyone can enjoy it and have fun.

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
This song would not get out of my head, it haunted me until I made it.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
The timing of the fades and working the different set designs and movers into place.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
The song has a great sound to it, Ivy Levan her voice is just tremendous

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Just sit back and enjoy:)

==========================================
Elayn
Prototype – Viktoria Modesto
Elayn once again fascinates the mind with a dance that is pure brilliance.

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I was very inspired by Victoria Modesta who is a RL amputee, but she doesn’t see it as any sort of disability, it’s her inspiration to be unique and amazing!

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
The first part is a recording of the similar movements in RL. Timing animations to that took longer than the rest of the dance! I really wanted to do it justice.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
There is no such thing as disability unless it is imposed by others.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Just what is said above!

Antonio
Crowd Dances
ADELE ~ SKYFALL (DANCE REMIX)
Duran Duran – A view to a Kill
Madonna Die Another Day Official Video

Bond! Antonio Bond! Sounds better than Aunt Tonio (the DJ needs pronunciation lessons) but WOW what a slick production these acts were!

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I like James bond movies, I thought the props from the movies would be good to dance on.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Placement for all the dance balls, 60 balls can be a tight squeeze.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
It was just a bit of fun, Crowd dances usually are.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Just have fun with it, and remember men the ladies to like a man in a suit.
