Pointe Toes Dance

Straight to the Pointe

To be a bit blunt, my name makes me sound like a stripper. Come on, I know you are all thinking it.

The Tipsy Dancer is a classically trained dancer who happens to really enjoy beer.

It’s true! I’ve been dancing since I was four years old and I have kept my training alive by becoming a color guard coach. I have competed in all genres (except krumping, I don’t have the rhythm or attack for that) and although I am no Maddie Ziegler, I did well.

But it became clear to me that competing and regurgitating routine after routine was not what I thought dance was supposed to be about. I’ve always admired the emotion and the story behind the craft so I began to focus more on choreography and how movement flowed within the music.

My favorite genre is modern/contemporary. To me it is very open stylistically and rhythmically. Contemporary fuses the genres together and it can really tug on the heart strings. I also love tap, specifically “acapella” tapping. There’s just something about the dancer creating their own rhythm.

But anyways, my point is that I know what I’m talking about and that I’m not a stripper.

 

This blog is split into two parts: beer and dance. I am going to write about both separately and I’m going to write about them both together.
