The Jazz Bucket list

So I've been looking around and heaps of people seem to have these things called "bucket lists" which is basically what they want to achieve before they die or turn 20 or something like that. Everyone is different. Then I had the Idea that we could make a Dance bucket list of things we want to achieve while we are dancers. Eg.

- An airial
- Win a competition
- Dance for the prime minister

We could all contribute to make a nice good list and then complete it. The Ideas can be out their but they need to be achievable. For example, dancing on the sun isn't possible.
So what do you guys think? Do you think its a good Idea and if so, what are some Ideas for the bucket list..?

Once we have a good amount of Ideas I'll make another post or someone else can do it, and we'll start to cross of out achievements. Maybe if it works even turn it into a sticky.

You may have seen a similar post on the ballet board. My friend made it. And told me to make one for Jazz. So I have her permission to post this :)

I think I actually commented on your friend's ballet bucket post :]
I'm a jazz dancer so I might as well make a Jazz Bucket List too.

- have a near perfect middle leap
- have my middle/straddle split
- get my switch leap

That's about it. :) I'll add more once I accomplish these.

before they turn 20? thats a random age...
for the longest time every year my new years resolution was to get my middle split. i still dont them, or i did for a little while a long time ago but I dont have them anymore.
My new goal is to get my side leaps back before the end of the year.

Hmmm I'm hoping to achieve all of the following by my studio's recital in June...:D
-double pirouettes, both sides, then triples
-DON'T freak out on across the floor turns(chaines,piques,etc.)
-clean my axel turns
-get all three splits
-higher battements/extensions
-more confidence :)
That's it for now! I might add more later on.

I want to be able to do an ariel and improve the amount of overall steps I know so that when I preform I can do lots of steps on the spot. I also want to get triple pirouettes.
