Me for Myself
After a break of more than three years, I joined my dance classes back. And after an equally long time, I felt I was in tune with myself again. Although it was only for a short while, twice a week to be precise, but I was enjoying myself. I was surely happier. In the middle of everything going wrong, there was something I looked forward too.
I couldn’t have asked for more, I had my fav instructor to teach me and Shiamak was right there on the day of the show. It was a good surprise since he arrived there just before our performance began. I was all pumped up and all smiles. And it was truly unbelievable to be up there and performing again. Bliss!
The dance style I learned this time was Krumping along with popping and locking. And the song was Blue! - remixed version of the title song. We used a huge piece of satin cloth and t-shirt as our props. All thanks to Prafful's superb imagination - the choreography was unbelievably awesome... and with amazing group effort, our number was well appreciated and was one of the best that evening.
Other numbers which really impressed me was "Tu Jane na" - very romantic and beautiful, a contemporary composition - totally loved it.
And for the first time, my enthusiasm was just a tad bit less. For the first time, I did not see that familiar face in crowd - the one that was always there for all my performances. I knew it won’t be there but for some reason my eyes were still searching for it. All I want to say is that I really missed you. I miss you everyday but I missed you a lot more that day.
Only if life was fair enough, even if not completely fair.... but since its not, I am going to take this as a new beginning. Beginning of a series of performances where it’s just me - my performances will now be all mine and for me. This time around, it will be me for myself.
