Is anybody going to be attending the AJDA Pheonix workshops this year? They will be in Wellington and Hamilton but unfortunately the christchurch workshop has been cancelled. They will be here in April and i went last yearand loved it so much!

I'll be going to the Hamilton one, too. I haven't been before, but I'll probably be in the Intermediate level, too.

Guys who went last year, or in previous years, can you share your experiences of it on this thread? What the classes were like, the other students, the teaching, the fun?

Pheonix was awsum! I liked the funk class especially because its not available here so it was new and different. The warm up on the second day pushed me as it consisted of ab holds with him counting down from sixty and crunches, pressups etc...
I personally had a great time!

Oh, and along the same lines as that, for the ballet class, did people wear ballet gear, or just stay in their jazz shoes etc?

Some people changed into their ballet shoes and some just stayed in their jazz ones. It all depends on what you feel like wearing. Some people did it in bare feet!!

haha... wow that whole thing was awesome wasn't it? I have a feeling it's going to be difficult to walk tomorrow when I get up though. I loved the lyrical best out of all the dances, but they were all really awesome. SiyoNqoba I am 100% percent positive that I saw you, in fact I think we even talked a little, but I was uh... quite shy and I didn't say anything about DDN *blush*

My stomach is STILL burning from the warm-up yesterday!

Lo_ver_ly, I think I saw you too! I was like "Do I mention DDN? Or will she think I'm a freak?" lol.

Was anyone in the 'Dancing With The Stars' thing?

Oh, and wasn't little 92 just the cutest thing in the world?

Tick, tick, boom!

Yay! Soooo much fun! I couldn't actually do much of anything at my jazz class this evening. I was too sore!

I wasn't in any of the 'Dance with the Stars' items. I was number 91, if anybody wants to know! :D

What we should have done was put up a sign saying 'DDN members, meet up here!!!' Then we could have had a great big ol' discussion without worrying that other people would think we were weird. :P

It's crazy, like, we were all dancing in the same room.

Now I'm on a hunt for the songs we used... I've been jotting down any lyrics I can remember so I can go and search for them. So far I've only tracked down the lyrical (which is "The Letting Go" by Melissa Etheridge in case anyone was interested lol), but I'm keen to find the others... does anyone remember any lyrics that might be helpful?

Hmmm.... the only one that comes to mind is 'funk it up' from the jazz dance. Sorry that wasn't very helpful.

The jazz one, I'm pretty sure, is by Aillene Bullock and is called 'Funkier Then A Mosquito's Tweeter' (who would have thought? Lol).

The funk one is called 'We're Coming Home,' and is by the Rogue Traders.

Good luck with the ballet and hip hop lol. All I remember from the hip hop one is "Show me what you're working with."

I'm still hunting for the hiphop song, but the jazz song is "Funkier Than A Mosquito's Tweeter" by Nikka Costa and the ballet (I'm seriously not sure how I found this one) is "Jeux D'Enfants" by Cirque de Soleil (Alegria Soundtrack)... I don't think I'm going to have too much luck with the hiphop, but I did, by some miraculous luck, find the ballet song I guess, so, there's always hops :)

I went along too. Thought it was awesome! I especially loved Adam Parson's classes - I can't believe he only started dancing when he was 26! I even went up to him and had a chat after class. He said that soon his choreography and stuff will be available to download on the internet. How cool is that!
