(Clint and I in a lift from "440")
I got the inspiration for my dance when I was at a local dive bar around the corner from my house called the 440 Club. As I was explaining to a friend an inner conflict that had been plaguing me, Jimi Hendrix's Red House came on the juke box. The song immediately fit the mood and weight of what I had been talking about and I just got so excited! I thought to myself that I HAD TO create a dance to that song! And so with my inspiration from that bar, I named my dance "440".
The movement turned out to be a jazzy, latin, contact/contemporary blend. I'm not normally the type to be in the spotlight, so this dance was a big change for me. I've also never danced that HARD! I was huffing and puffing after every run through because I'm on stage the entire time moving with my whole body! I can't say enough how happy I was with the result!
