1. What is your history with dance in SL?
Second Life has always brought me closer to the arts in general, painting, photography and 3D modeling. I have a very old friend who always invited me to watch his dance shows…and he always delighted me. I once asked him to give me a dance for my birthday, to create a dance for me to dance with him. I thought we would dance just the two of us….and to my surprise he created a show with other choreographers and the first dance was ours. The emotion was so great that I cried….and there I was caught…..when the show ended I wanted to learn to dance too.
I spent 6 months studying a lot and it wasn’t very easy because English is not my native language. But I learned a lot and finally managed to assemble my dance: choreography, scenery and costumes. I was delighted with that learning and in a short time it became my most serious hobby….I dare say that I am addicted to creating dances. I just can’t stop anymore.
2. What do you enjoy the most about SL dance?
What I like most is the creative process itself. I love and am always listening to music and now when I listen to the songs that hit my heart the most I think: I want to do a dance with this music. Choose the animations that match the music and put them in order so that they represent as much as possible the emotion I’m feeling when listening to the music. Being able to share with my friends that mix of emotions. When I’m in the process of creating a dance, I don’t notice time.
3. What do you enjoy the least about SL dance?
What I like least is the level of stress I have when I’m performing a dance. I would like to be calmer and be able to enjoy more the moment when I am performing a dance.
4. What has been your best experience in SL dance?
I think I had a lot of good experiences with my SL dancing but without a doubt the best were the ones I was able to relax and have fun with friends.
5. Out of all the dances you have created or participated in, which is your fave?
The first one…..Togetherness…fundamental dance for my own dance journey.
