Dance coach dad

Posted on January 24, 2014 

DJ is in this dance troop at school. It's called Orchesis. I think it's Greek for "shake yo' bootie."

This spring, all of the juniors and seniors get to perform a solo. They pick their own music and choreograph their own moves. It's pretty cool to see.

Since my big debut as a dancer in A Christmas Carol, I thought it appropriate for me to sort of give her some guidance as she began to brainstorm about her performance.

"DJ, you need to be creative. In past years, a lot of the solos have looked the same."

"What do you mean dad?"

"Well, they all throw themselves on the floor, thrust their chests out, gracefully hold out their limbs... I mean, they look good and all, but it's the same. You need to come up with some new moves."

"I don't know what you're talking about..."

"They all do the same thing - you know, like this:"

I think she got the point. I'm looking forward to her creativity.
