OMG OMG OMG! I just signed up to take a workshop in May with a serious dance legend: Louise LeCavalier
In case you don't know who she is, watch this insanity:
Yeah. She kinda makes Jackie Chan look lazy.
I've never felt nervous about taking a dance workshop before, but this one scares the crap out of me! Here's the write-up:
Workshop open to professional dance artists, and dance students in a professional dance training program.
This workshop will be divided into two parts, each one lasting approximately an hour and a half. The first part will be a training session based not on usual dance techniques, but on elements taken from boxing, as well as simple, dynamic, natural movements aimed at developing intensity and pushing stamina to its limits. In the second part, participants will perform a choreographic excerpt that - although it may seem simple at first glance - will demand the speed of execution, precision, and coordination of original movements characteristic of the style of choreographer Édouard Lock.
"The starting point is my fascination for the impulse of movement, which precedes all forms of human communication and allows us to read the soul." Louise Lecavalier
Oh dear lord. Pushing stamina to its limits.
As led by her
. I may die. Lungs, don't fail me! I guess I'd better keep working my interval training to increase my odds of survival.
Yeah. Tomorrow is a gym day for sure. I have to train up just so I don't meet my demise while training with her.
