1. What is your history with dance in SL?

I started doing dancing in Sl as a pad sitter for my dearest friend, Wild Catnap. This lovely lady pulled me into Sl and against my better judgment MADE me learn all about dance. For this, I thank her immensely! Who knew that I would find it not only entertaining, but something I completely enjoy doing. Watching how creative others are, and finding out that hidden in my warped mind, I can do it too.

2. What do you enjoy the most about SL dance?

I know that SL has many things to offer a person if you but look, but this world of dance has lit something within me that I had no idea existed. I now enjoy so much listening to music to not only hear the sound, but to see the movement that one can create out of it. The dance playing out in my head just drives me to want to put it on a stage so that others can be drawn into my world too.

3. What do you enjoy the least about SL dance?

The thing I struggle with when it comes to this great world of dance is, when the images playing in my head just don’t come to life as I see it here on the SL stage. Either I am unable to get the movements to line up just so so or a set just won’t come to life. However, I do find that if I just set it aside for as bit, that when I come back to it, I can usually find a compromise. Of course there are always a few “choice” words that are included in that compromise.

4. What has been your best experience in SL dance?

Everytime I get the chance to run a set, it is like a new experience. When it all comes together and there are no glitches, and lets face it, Sl LOVES to throw those in at every opportunity, it is one of the best feelings ever. You finally get to see the magic that was once stuck in your head come to life on a stage for others to enjoy. When I get a fun comment or compliment about a set I just did, it makes all the stress, nerves, nono words and the like all worth it because it means that I made someone smile and enjoy something for that moment. And hey, let’s face it, WHO doesn’t like ladies throwing, or rather around here, “shooting” their panties at you while you dance on stage.

5. Out of all the dances you have done, which is your fave?

Trying to choose a favorite set for me is like trying to choose between my favorite ales. I’ve really enjoyed doing each one and with each of them, there are parts that just make me get slap happy and others that make me want to fall off my chair. Im not sure I can pinpoint just one yet and say THAT is my favorite one.

6. What message would you like to leave for your fans?

Wow, thinking of having fans kinda blows my mind! I’m not sure if it’s even possible. I guess all I can say bout that is I just hope that I can make someones day a little lighter by making them laugh a bit or just plain and simple forget anything unpleasant that may have gone on during their day/week.

7. Anything else you’d like to share?

One thing I’d like to add is just that for all of you who are in the world of dance, keep sharing your magic with all of us, and for those who are thinking about joining it, take a page out of Nikes book and ” JUST DO IT”! Keep on rockin the chicken and enjoy everything that comes your way!
