A little dance life update: So a few months ago, I shared how I was booked as a dancer for a music video and how that whole week we had rehearsals and then we were shooting the week after. It was going to be this huge 22 minute music video with multiple artists, that I literally could not believe I booked and I was soooo, so excited for it, as was everyone else. We finished rehearsals on a Friday and then Saturday morning, we all received an email saying shooting had to be post-poned because the production company they had ended up backing out. I thought, ok, so we’ll shoot in a few weeks. Not exactly lol. It’s been two months since then, but we still were paid for rehearsals, (which was like the best pay check I have ever gotten,) and last week, we were told that they are (hopefully) in the final stages of getting their new production team together. So I am praying it ends up coming together!
Regardless though, that week of rehearsals was one of the best weeks ever for me. For so long, I dreamed of having rehearsals for something like that, with dancers who were all passionate about the same thing. And getting paid to do something you absolutely love is seriously the coolest thing ever. I have done multiple things as a dancer for free, just because I like to do it, or because I just wanted to put something new on my resume… and even with this, I would have done it for free if I had to.
On the bright side though, shortly after that, I ended up booking 2 episodes for a show on the Dance Network! I film the first one in November, and then the second one in December, so I’m hoping that at least ends up going through! haha.
