Dance, Even When You're Busy

by Gabriela Simich


We can all relate to tackling many projects at one time. It's the artist's way! Even though my day is largely spent online, promoting dance, it doesn't make sense to continue being on the computer if I'm not ever away from it.  Just watching videos of dancing and seeing hundreds of inspiring videos online is not enough to satisfy my dance belly.  

Dance Away From the Keyboard!

We are supposed to move! I don't care who you are and what you do, just please move.  For someone that's considered active, even I have to remind myself to move sometimes. Sitting at the computer can be a killer!  Computer and phone screens can be this hypnotizing obsession whether you're on there for work or pleasure. Balance it out with a good beat and some funky moves. Dance it out, Kevin Bacon style. 

To practice what I preach, I'm performing this Friday night, downtown LA for A Piece of Body vol.2 "Mirror".  I composed a little solo where I get to wear a silver suit and dance around to my favorite band, Failure. What could be more awesome than that? 

 

If I don't dance soon, I'll die.

If I don't dance soon, I'll die.

Staying true to my social media dance studies, the piece will carry on themes about the created online identity with the computer screen being the new mirror. Let's face it, kids today probably take more #selfies than looking in the mirror. (I'm probably included as one of these 'kids' but I'm not ready to admit it yet.) 

Anyways, screw this and let's go dance.
