Dance Dance Dance

Long term readers and blogger friends know that as well as fashion and blogging and all that jazz, one of my biggest loves is dance, and that I'm an active member of my university's Dance Society. Quite a few people have expressed an interest in that, so I thought I'd do a post about it. If dance really isn't your thing, feel free to skip this post.

Every year we have a big show, choreographed by students, and this year was my second time choreographing a piece. My main styles of dance are Latin and Ballroom, and in second year I was Latin and Ballroom Officer on the society committee and choreographed the Latin piece for the show. This year I choreoed again, and the theme of the show was "Once Upon A Time", so I put together a charleston and jive-based Pinocchio piece called "I've Got No Strings".


(Unfortunately the timing of the audio is a bit off with the dancing, but only a fraction so it's still watchable. See if you can spot me!)
My friend Dan is probably going to kill me for putting this online, as he's a bit embarrassed about his cameo as the Blue Fairy, but I think he did an amazing job, don't you?

I was in some other amazing pieces in the show too, we have some really talented dancers and choreographers at my uni.
This one is called "Forever Young and Dancing" and is based on the Lost Boys from Peter Pan.


I loved the costume for this piece. With all the green and leafiness I felt like a woodland pixie or something like that.

My friend Sophie, who is an incredible dancer, is this year's Ballroom and Latin officer and choreographed this INCREDIBLE ballroom number. Called "The Glass Slipper" it's based on Cinderella. The clock strikes 12 and she tries to leave the ball, but gets caught up in a quickstep and can't escape!


This is my very favourite dance I've ever been in. The costumes were incredible, we hired real Strictly-worthy competition dresses and the boys wore tailcoats.

I was also in the Burlesque piece, but I'm not going to put a video of me dancing in not much more than underwear on my blog! :p

Do any of you lot dance? Let me know what you think of our show pieces!



P.S. If you've got time to kill and want to see some more awesome dancing, the rest of the videos from this year's show can be found here.

P.P.S. As predicted, Dan was not too impressed at my putting his fairy dancing on my blog, and has asked that I put this video of his bachata up to prove he can actually dance. (Which he definitely can, as he's one of the most talented dancers and choreographers I know.)

  7. Loved watching these Fritha!Well done!I dont know how you had time for all this! Ive danced since I was 4 years old so it is very much a part of me! Ive been out of it for a few years now but desperate to get back into classes somehow without being mums and things! I always loved doing big shows like this, especially for the variety to skills you get to use and changes of costume! I really wish my Uni had had things like this! xxx

  8. I've never really done choreography - so I'm very impressed (and jealous!) of your skills. I did looooads of dancing when I was little, but gave up when I moved house. It's a shame the dance society here is all street dance based - I'd rather do something like this! xxx

  11. This was a great post, I really enjoy seeing personal posts from bloggers. I loved the dance videos too, and your choreography looks great! I did ballet (and a bit of jazz & contemporary) for just over 16 years, but haven't really danced for the past 2 years. I really want to get back into it again as I miss it so much!!

  13. I absolutely love this post! I've danced from the age of 2 and have competed all over the world. I do freestyle, ballroom, Latin and theatre but also have experience in ballet, stage, tap. You name it I've tried it! I love the routines and the quickstep one really is amazing!
    I'll be starting uni next year and you've really inspired me to get into the dance society!
