Step 4: Decisions,Rejections,&&Shows

I haven’t posted in a while since I have been terribly busy with school, dance, and life. Unfortunately, I was not chosen for the Ailey Summer Program, however it is not entirely bad since I wouldn’t have given up Hubbard Street for Ailey this summer. (They conflicted with each other- time-wise.) Other than the rejection, we have begun to rehearse for the show Celebrate Dance in Glendale, Ca with NRD. I also started reading “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank, it is very inspiring and touching. I have also been to see two shows!

My best friend has bought me tickets to: the Joffrey Ballet’s show “Rite of Spring”, and to the Hamburg Ballet’s “Little Mermaid”. The Joffrey showed three works, all of which were stunning!!!! “Age of Innocence”, “In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated”, and the famous “Rite of Spring”. All very different from each other, but oh so beautiful!

The Hamburg had very amazing dancers, unfortunately it was not one of my favorites ever. In fact, I really did not like it too much. It was a combination of the music, and choreography (almost no ballet) that put me off. But I am very grateful for both shows. They both had a lot to give me. Very amazing dancers and talented choreographers.

I would like to announce that I also had my first $50 donation by my best friend, Marco Carreon! Thank you sooooo much!!!!!!

I believe I might enter the CSUDH Talent Show! It does interfere with classes, so I’ll try to arrange something with them, but I do believe they give out cash prizes. I’m doing it so that if I were to win, the prize could go towards my summer program fund! Let’s cross our fingers.

Anyways, here is the NRD promo for DNA. I show up after Matt’s solo: 1:23. I’m the dude with a lot of hair 😉

Goal: $5000 (this accumulates to the cost of attending one intensive)
Due: May 2013

If 100 people would donate $50 my goal would be successful (but any amount of donation is appreciated)

I can be reached at RMEDINA49@TOROMAIL.CSUDH.EDU
Also at my Facebook

Thank You for your time!

Sincerely,

Ruben

  1. Liked you back!! I don’t know much about Ballet. But from the video you seem pretty expressive. Like there is a little added grace between the actual movements. Good Luck!

  2. That was absolutely stunning! Watching dancers like you make me so miss the days I spent dancing! Never stop, you clearly have a beautiful gift.
