The Red – Chevelle

I’ve been trying to decide on music for my next competition routines and when this song came on in my husband’s car, I considered it until I realized that the incomparable Sarah Jade had performed to it at Dance Filthy 2016 and there’s no way I could do it justice after her! It’s still a great song, though, so I used it for class where I could really dance it out and bring other people along with me on the ride. I showed my class her video afterwards and it was the first time seeing Sarah Jade for most them: everyone was in awe.

My goal for this routine was to make it more flowy than usual and focus on some floating arm movement. I definitely focus more on legs than I do on arms in my choreography, and it’s a big weak spot. The specifically incorporated arm movements are at :10, :23, :40, 1:01, 1:44, and 1:58. Going back through the routine now and counting them all out actually makes me feel better about realizing my intention! I definitely think I accomplished my goal of making this routine more circular and flowy than others, especially if you compare it to You Don’t Own Me from a couple weeks ago. There is tons of room for improvement, but it’s a start. I have some goals for 2018 in terms of my dance, and I’m eager to accomplish them!
