I was honoured to be asked by Athena, Liila, and Kirah to be an “early-adopter” (or an ‘influencer’) in their new challenge, The Real Dance Thing!
What is #TheRealDanceThing?
It’s a dance challenge that starts on Instagram today! The aim of this challenge is to encourage spontaneity and help us move away from perfectionist tendencies. No filming and refilming – one shot, then sharing the real-ness. Take a read of the mission and the rules below, or click here to check out The Real Dance Thing Instagram page.
”We are all feeling pressure to film and re-film dances for social media until they are “perfect.” This makes us sad, because the spontaneity and realness of the moment is being lost. Our goal is to create a place that celebrates authenic moments of dance. Let’s enjoy real dances done in a single take, just like a live show. We can revel in the real, raw experience of being willing to share our first take.”
- “This challenge starts February 1, 2021. Prompts will be posted every Monday.
- This should be the first video or picture you’ve taken in response to the prompt.
- We are asking you to be authentic, so only do the prompts that speak to you. Or do them all – we really love all of them!”
The first prompts are already up- I’ll be sharing my first entry for #TheRealDanceThing on my Instagram feed later tonight!
