1. What is your history with dance in SL?
I was a week old and went to a club and saw dancers on podiums and poles and wanted to give it a go, writing emotes for tips.
From age 30 days I was dancing in clubs in SL. I then joined the SL Chippendales after another month or so and got the dancing bug, so I never looked back.
I joined a couple of other dance troupes who did a few shows a year, real theatre productions, and I then started to choreograph routines myself using the skills and knowledge I had acquired. That was back in 2015, so three years later I am choreographing new routines regularly for various shows and dance troupes.
2. What do you enjoy the most about SL dance?
The variety…. anything is possible as crazy and quirky as you want… dancing animals, aliens, the limit is your imagination. If you think of a dance routine there is a good chance you can do it here in SL whereas in RL it might be impossible, or very costly.
It is also a fun community to be a part of, there are some great people you get to work with.
3. What do you enjoy the least about SL dance?
The time some dances can take….. you have to be well prepared and think about how long some routines will take depending on the number of animations and moves you want to have in the dance.
Also – the lag! That monster is not a dancer’s friend.
4. What has been your best experience in SL dance?
Completing my first full show back in 2011. The adrenalin and fun of being a part of a show and the audience reaction. I think also on a par with that the first dance I choreographed….. I was so nervous but it went well and people loved it! I was grinning for weeks.
5. Out of all the dances you have done or participated in, which is your fave?
There are a couple….
I have had a great time dancing with Klark Harvy in SL for a few years and he put on one of the best dances I had seen when he choreographed a dance to Singing In The Rain.
Of the ones I have created myself, I would have to say so far…. My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark is my favourite.
6. What message would you like to leave for your fans or the dance community?
A big thank you for all your support over the years I have been dancing and choreographing, and to say that there is always more to come!
