I am currently looking up how to do nice edits on videos. I’ve spent the last two weeks split between practice in both music and dance studio times, and searching how to shoot how to videos. I will start uploading how to dance videos on YouTube every week or every month. (Once a week or once a month). Looking forward to this new project. We aren’t that hopeful about the second stage of the competition as they have called at an inconvenient time for us. We might have to drop out of the competition. As there is no one to practice with I have been occupying most of my time with video editing software. Once I feel comfortable enough editing the videos to my liking I will start uploading them.
Update (August 10, 2015) : Well this project failed miserably. Maybe I’ll reboot when I have a better computer and camera.
Tomorrow is a special day in Turkey.
“On October 29, 1923, the Turkish constitution was amended and Turkey became a republic. This formally declared the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire. Republic Day (Cumhuriyet Bayramı) is celebrated throughout Turkey every year” – Source : http://www.seslisozluk.net/?word=cumhuriyet+bayram%C4%B1&lang=tr-en
Due to this reason, every business and school is a half day today. My morning class was cancelled, and as usual I was not informed. After figuring out why nobody came to class I immediately dispersed towards downtown to get to the dance studio. Upon arrival I noticed that it was only 9 (nine) am. I waited an hour in the cold for them to unlock the doors. After they unlocked the doors, I have to wait for my manager and dance partner to arrive, so in the mean time I am updating my blog and will be creating a new website.
Today the dance studio, my manager, and I came to an agreement of using the dance studio 2 (two) times a week to work on my dance routine, which we (my manager and I) spent 30 (thirty) minutes in today for practice time (and a bit showing of showing off), for a contest I will hopefully be entering soon. The contest we are trying to get a spot in is the biggest talent contest in Turkey, “Yetenek Sizsiniz Turkiye”. If we can get a spot in this contest, many doors will open for us.
We were able to get the dance studio to sponsor us with costumes and studio usage privileges. This will be playing a huge factor in our projects due to financial freedom from our biggest expenses.
The second day at the language school wasn’t bad. The students still came to class with the willingness they had to learn English from two days ago, student like this is what inspires me to continue teaching. For the next class, I’m thinking of starting with basic dialogues and conversation. Hopefully after a few classes they will be able to write their own dialogues to play out in class.
Being in a new country that holds adventure everyday and being able to take part in life changing projects feel amazing. Hopefully we will start taking videos and uploading them so I can show all of you how well my dancing is.
Today, with my manager, we’ll be checking out a new dance studio to start shooting videos every week. There’s also a possibility of me teaching Hip-Hop dance to students. It’s going to be pretty hard to commercialize in such a small city, but we will be doing the best we can with all the possibilities we can. All my followers will sure to get an update every time we upload a video.
Today well be my second day at the language school in this semester. I’m thinking about starting basic dialogues with the students on basic english. Next week I’ll be discussing business appropriate introductions and conversations.
Tonight I’ll post about the second day of my teaching and the conclusion to the agreement we might reach with the dance studio.
