When I first watched So You Think You Can Dance America, I would have never guessed 8TV would bought their franchise and did So You Think You Can Dance Malaysia. I have great respect for those dance performer because their dedication, hard work of practice and their passion. This is one of the reason when I first met Laadvamore, I fell in love with her because she’s so passionate about dancing, which makes her so special to me. Did you know that passion can be contagious?
It was not until a good friend of mine asked me to join him to a dance studio 3 weeks ago. At first I rejected his idea but eventually I changed my mind. I became curious to know what it’s like being in the dancing shoes. My friend didn’t go for some cheap aerobic style dance class, he chosed a premium one, Linda Jasmine Performing Arts Studio just next to Ampang Point Shopping Mall. So, there I was in a dance studio paying RM50 for the membership fees and for the class I’ve chosen, I need to pay RM110 per month.

The dance class I’ve chosen is called fusion dance. It’s been conducted by the lovely Pamela Chong. Pamela is Vince’s (Akademi Fantasia 1st Winner) sister and she is ‘da bomb’. It was unfortunate that my class wasn’t being conducted by the owner herself, Mrs Linda Jasmin herself but after seeing her conducted a class, I was thinking twice about it. I even heard that she can be so mean. Being a dancer is tough, I mean really really tough. It demands physical fitness, proper technique and a lot of practices. I can’t even swing my feet properly let alone dance according to the step Pam has showed. My whole body got sored by the time my first class ended. Here’s a few picture of the dance studio stolen from SuperStalker:
I finally decided to call it a quite after the second class because I realized one thing, my body is so stiff. The only time I’ve ever been athletic was when I was back in school, that was just for some marathon run which was compulsory for every student. It wasn’t much of a marathon because it’s only like 5 – 10 km of running around. Still, I am blessed with the health that I have. However, I need to work out some more if I want to keep on being healthy.To cut my long story short, I find dancing fun, exciting and very good for me. However being a self-proclaim geek, it’s kind of hard to break off from the habit of laziness. I need some motivation, I think Laadvamore can help me with that, right darling? ;-) Some related links and info about Linda Jasmine Performing Arts Studio:
