Hallelujah by Tamela Mann | Dance Piece
Happy Thursday everyone! I have to say that I've always wanted to dance to this song! One of my favorites This dance was not choreographed but I felt a tug on my heart to just go for it and dance. I have a list of songs that I look forward to dancing to and this was one of them. However....after watching the dance, I'm realizing that I have a difficult time fusing my liturgical background and technique together. I feel like it's common sense to make it work together but, as I'm trying to find my signature style while incorporating praise dance is hard. I can say that I do see growth in this dance BUT I could've went a little harder too. There are parts in the dance that needed more lengthening in the arms and arch in the back. I played it safe a little bit in this piece and it's been a while since I've danced to gospel too. No excuses, just saying lol I pray you enjoy and are blessed through this song. Lesson: go harder and take risks. Practice blending praise/liturgical dance and my technique together. Side note: the video stopped recording and I was still dancing. I think it was a good thing it did cuz I was out of breath lol

Hey everyone! Happy summer!
I REALLY enjoyed choreographing this piece BUT, I know I could've practiced more...
I realized that when I forget a move, I resort to doing a praise dance move because that's the style of dance I'm comfortable with. After seeing my self on video, I knew that I needed to start doing dance improv more so I can resort to something different if that ever happens again. I guess it was that small pressure of forgetting the move and that was the easiest style I could turn to.
I was a lot more relaxed and in my zone with this piece. I danced at this event last year with a friend to a fun gospel song and it was not the same response compared to this year. There were a lot of West Indian people that attended last year so I thought it would be good to dance to something they could rock to.
Lesson: practice more and choreograph more, don't leave room for improvisation.

I pray you are blessed through this dance piece and that you may have a strong desire to want more of God.
I've seen growth in my last video and in this one as well. Some things I realized was
- my arms were lazy in some parts dance which made some of the moves look weird to me
-I was singing the song....I tried really not to and I normally don't but I think singing helped to control my pace. Which leads to my next realization...
- I paced myself and I am super proud of that small growth...it really does a lot
- I did more leg lifts 🙌🏾
- I trusted my body more this time

Short Description: FLOWN stands for
Freedom, Lessons, Openness, Withholding Nothing. This piece represents my season of transitioning into adulthood and following my dream of becoming the dancer/choreographer I know I can be. This is a journey of showing what freedom looks like and feel like after making the necessary moves in entering into adulthood. Throughout this journey of freedom I've learned a few lessons, I learned how to be open minded and to withhold nothing.
