    Wisdom and Inspiration on Dance at The World Choreography Awards

    Wisdom and Inspiration on Dance at The World Choreography Awards

    To create one's own world takes courage
    -Georgia O'Keeffe

    It takes courage to create. It takes courage to be vulnerable, to share your art with the world. Courageous is one word I would easily use to describe the artists in attendance at The World Choreography Awards that took place in December 2021 at The Globe Theater in Los Angeles. Wisdom and inspiration were abundant throughout my conversations with attendees and award nominees/winners that I am excited to share in this latest podcast session.

    A few takeaways from this session:

    It's important to honor and know dance history, and where dance forms originate from.

    Events like The World Choreography Awards are important to continue celebrating the work and creativity that goes into dance media.

    Taking care of mental health needs to continue being forefront in dance and other creative arts.

    Keep creating and supporting other creators and collaborators.

    The importance of mentorship and training the next generation will help the longevity and integrity of dance and art.

    How To Effectively Lead Yourself and Others to More Success

    How To Effectively Lead Yourself and Others to More Success

    "The true mark of a leader is the willingness to stick with a bold course of action — an unconventional business strategy, a unique product-development roadmap, a controversial marketing campaign — even as the rest of the world wonders why you're not marching in step with the status quo. In other words, real leaders are happy to zig while others zag. They understand that in an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something special."
    -Bill Taylor

    My guest on this session is Emeroy Bernardo, dancer and CEO of Vision Paradox and Artistic Director/Founder of Temper Tantrum Dance Company. He stands for something special and is special in the dance, creative and entrepreneurial world which is why he’s been able to accomplish many things and continues to do so.

    Our conversation on leadership started from a comment that I made about being reminded of his leadership journey, then referring to my leadership lessons episode on Session #217, then him expressing that he could say a lot about that topic.

    So, this episode came from that initial exchange and I am so glad to share his insights. He is a great example of how to effectively lead yourself and others to more success.

    He stood in the gap for me and his other students when I met him coming back to dance in 2014, taking his classes, being challenged but also being encouraged. That is a mark of a true leader.

    If you want to know his background, listen to my other episodes that are linked on the bottom and if you search for his name, Emeroy Bernardo, you will come across other interviews, his top selling dance courses on Udemy, as well as his channels on YouTube.
    A few takeaways from this session:

    Being an effective leader starts with leading yourself

    Be intentional with your self-care and a morning routine

    Enjoy your process

    Be the example

    Create a safe space for open communication and expression

    Stay curious and learn something new

    Don't be so attached to the outcome

    Strike a balance between being serious and having fun

    Be aware of your self-talk

    You have more control than you think over leading your own life

    Leadership Lessons from Freestyle Session

    Leadership Lessons from Freestyle Session

    Leadership is lifting a person's vision to high sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations. —Peter Drucker

    To be an effective leader for others, the most important person is to first lead yourself. This session covers the following leadership lessons I gleaned from attending Freestyle Session 2021 in Los Angeles, a yearly event going down for the past 25 years in over 40 countries worldwide, representing every element of Hip Hop and street dance.
    Leadership lessons from Freestyle Session:

    Timing is key with dance moves and with leadership. Leaders are sensitive to timing. “There is timing in everything. Timing in strategy cannot be mastered without a great deal of practice.” – Miyamoto Musashi

    Teamwork: Even if you are not a leadership "position," you are part of a team and your example is still impactful.

    Support: Do you have a support system in the different areas of your life? If not, do you have a plan to seek some out? Leaders provide sustained support for their teams. Leaders also know how to ask for support.

    Strategy and Tactics: A leader is forward focused. A leader is mission driven and has a plan. Not perfection but progress.

    Confidence is contagious. Not arrogance. As a leader, you inspire with confidence.

    Seize the moment but also savor it. This goes back to timing. Also enjoying the present moment. Leaders plan for progress but enjoy the journey. There were many magical moments at this event. Check out the https://instagram.com/fssworldwide (Instagram profile) for some amazing shots.

    Practice in private doesn’t mean it’s less important or you’re less important because people don’t notice you. This was prevalent in the smaller cyphers of people practicing for practice sake. Absorbing the energy of the event to refine their craft. Leaders do things because they have a mission, regardless if others notice or not.

    Moments and pauses: Leaders, and that can include dancers, know that moments and pauses are important. Business is not all about business. Great leaders have reverence for humanity.

    Being an example for the next generation. No doubt there are things leaders deal with behind the scenes but because it is required for a leader to keep the company going, the necessities get executed.

    An ode to honor for the people that paved the way: Leaders give reverence to people that were there before them.

    Expression vs impression: As a leader, what is your mission? To express your message or impress because of ego? This can be interchangeable depending on the context, however, a leader that is focused on their mission and message is already impressive and doesn't need to try to be perceived as such.

    Healing Through Dance, Meditation and Movement

    Healing Through Dance, Meditation and Movement

    "We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.”
    -Albert Einstein
    Even though we are coming out of this pandemic, seems like yesterday and it seems like a lifetime when things were shut down and we were navigating and figuring things out.

    Regardless of circumstances, life requires us to navigate change and figure things out.

    As I’ve been navigating my journey coming back to dance in 2014 after two decades, it didn’t dawn on me that dance has been a huge component of my healing process in dealing with the negative relationship I had with myself and in turn how that affected my relationship with others.

    During the pandemic I had a delightful exchange with dancer, choreographer, somatic and creative recovery coach Morgyn Danae and I am happy to share this conversation that reminded me of the healing and meditative benefits of dance and movement.
    3 Takeaways from this session:

    Dance and movement are meditation. Meditation comes in different forms and can be experienced in different ways.

    Trauma is stored in the body and there are methods to address and release trauma.

    Dance, movement and meditation go beyond the aesthetic and performative aspects. Dance is a healing art.

    How to Have a Better Relationship with Yourself and With Others

    How to Have a Better Relationship with Yourself and With Others

    According to Merriam Webster dictionary, the definition of juxtapose means to place (different things) side by side (as to compare them or contrast them or to create an interesting effect)

    Interesting is a mild word to describe the work of Jacob Jonas The Company. I would use engaging and fascinating, for examples.

    Juxtapose is the title of their recent work that I got to experience thanks to The Wallis and ROW DTLA.

    This is the second time I’ve seen this company perform, the first time was at The Wallis back in 2019.

    I would’ve happily seen them at The Wallis again but this was an outdoor performance on the rooftop of ROW DTLA and I am so thankful I got to experience a new venue.

    This performance inspired the following ten tips on our relationship with ourselves and with others as I was watching the intriguing interactions between the dancers:

    Ask yourself if you are asleep or awake? Most people are asleep with their eyes open going through the motions, sometimes alone and sometimes together. Do you need a wake up call in some area of your life?

    Stop worrying excessively about what people might think of you. Most are so entrenched in their own affairs that they aren’t even thinking of you.

    Focus on what you can appreciate. I appreciate the athletic artistry of this company, knowing I will be engaged. I would’ve cut the beginning part shorter, and not put so much repetition in some of the sections. My personal trigger was my experience with contact improvisation. It was very prominent between the performers and it took me back to my first class years ago and trying to be intuitive and then someone telling me I wasn’t really doing it properly. I appreciate this movement form and the performers executed well--it was just my own personal bias toward my experience that caught me off guard.

    Ask yourself how best to respond to someone else. The example of the stage flooring when the dancers landing throughout the choreography was loud and abrupt. How do you want the interactions in your relationships to land?

    Pay attention to relationship dynamics. Sometimes you are supporting, provoking, or inspiring. Just as each duo was interacting with one another, there was a constant give and take, push and pull.

    Are you getting caught up in what the majority is doing? Are you going to extremes when it isn’t necessary? It is easy to get caught up in what the majority is doing, and that can be both “bad” and beautiful. There is power in one and there is power in many. You decide how you want to disperse your energy and efforts in relationships.

    Sometimes you have to release to get more strength and sometimes you have to stand your ground.

    Know that even when you feel alone, you aren’t. There are others around you that can help or inspire you. You have to allow space for it.

    When you need space for yourself, acknowledge that. And let others know that you do.

    Remember that the most important is first the relationship and trust within yourself and that affects how you show up in other relationships.




    Juxtapose, this engaging performance by Jacob Jonas The Company that reminded me of the dynamics of relationships, how we can be ourselves and how we can stand together to support one another.

Loving these sessions!

As a young dancer, I never thought of myself as an entrepreneur. Now, because of podcasts, and other creative platforms like these, I know better. Annett is easy to listen to. She offers different perspectives and simple solutions for complex problems. And, she stresses the importance of simply being a good human being.
