Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

So you think you can dance top 10…

So we are half way through So You Think You Can Dance. I haven’t had the time to watch religiously but have been able to catch up with all the re-runs. Last night the final 12 were cut to the final 10 and I still don’t have one favourite. So far this year all the dancers are impresive in thier own way and the choreography is fantastic. The show has really become an avenue for great choreographers to showcase and try to outdo themselves and eachother. That’s just making everyone look good.

So my most memorable performances and choreography from last night:

The Thief routineDancers Jeanette and Brandon, choreographer Wade Robson. They really entertained with this one. The movements were crisp and unique from eachother. It was so memorable days later I can still hear the music in my head. Recieved a few looks at the office while I slueth down the halls trying to emulate the moves to the music in my head.

The Addiction numberDancers Kayla and Kupono, choreographer Mia Michaels. This one was great as expected. A couple of the other male dancers may have more technical clarity in thier movements but no other male dancer on the show could have pulled off the performance kupono did. Kayla of couse was great as well – they are a perfect partnership.

The Tango Dancers Jeanette and Brandon, choreographers Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo. So I rarley have a ballroom routine stick in my mind as one of my favourites. they are usually great but this one was beyond. The footwork was fast and crisp and they had the perfect amount of expression – they didn’t over cheese it. Great dancers with stellar choreography on this one.

So it looks like there’s some dancers that keep turning up in my fav dances. Half way through I’ll finally commit that my favourite dancers this season are:

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
