Kaaaat have you seen this? 😀
yesssssssssssssssssss and I am in love with her footwork and at the same time in despair because I will never be this cool
honestly this is amazing dancing. and I danced at a school where I regularly watched dancers who placed in the world championships. it’s just really important to me to make sure you all know that this isn’t just a great song and a creative pairing of art forms, it’s a kickass awesome piece of irish dancing.
I at least know enough that I recognize most of the moves in this! I can even do some of them (that high kick with the heel click on “I go to to France for more funds”–I can do that!) (… that one’s actually not a very challenging move). But there’s so much in this (those fast twists and drums, and all those pretty, slow toe stands, ahhhh) that I would have to practice for a hundred years to come close to doing.
guess I’d better start practicing. 😛
george washington: we are OUTGUNNED, OUTMANNED–
alexander hamilton: sir. there is no need to worry. i have three whole friends now.
One of my very favorite things besides ballet is Hamilton the Musical on Broadway (@hamiltonmusical). So I decided to combine both by doing Grand Allegro to “Dear Theodosia” from Hamilton. It’s an extra special video too because the song is about a father’s love for a child and my daddy is in the background of the video running my music. I am so thankful for my parents and everything they sacrifice to help me reach my dreams! #Hamilton #hamiltonmusical #HamiltonBway #RiseUp #TheRoomWhereItHappens #DearTheodosia @olivia_thedancer @jacquelineporterballet
i find ‘wait for it’ hilarious because apparently Burr’s entire philosophy in life is “I can be master of my own self, but some things are beyond my control. life and death. love, my past, forces of nature. and Hamilton, I also cannot control Hamilton.”
Josh Castille (Ernst in Deaf West’s Spring Awakening on Broadway) performing “Satisfied” from Hamilton in ASL!
This is seriously mind-blowing, watch until the end. He’s amazing. (Starts at 0:34 and gets really good at 1:35).
What’s amazing to me (aside from the repeating visual refrain/references to the word “satisfied”), is that he chose to perform the rapped ASL as pop-and-lock, which is, goddamnit, SATISFYING.
