So. I know Hot Track Tuesday is supposed to uncover new music. But this contemporary routine on So You Think You Can Dance was so breath-taking and so relevant to today’s events, I just HAD to share it.
…If you are an aficionado of the fantastical as myself, you will point to Romeo + Juliet by Baz Luhrmann (my favorite director)… the scene when Leonardo DiCaprio as Romeo and Claire Danes as Juliet lock eyes for the first time. Through an aquarium. Yes, folks, it doesn’t get any more romantic than that (ha).
There are just some people who fit so perfectly into their line of work, the fire that emits from their eyes to the ends of their toes is so brilliant and so radiant. When I see performances like these, I admire these dancers and choreographers because
- They are so freaking talented, and
- They bring out the best in others.
Case Study 2.
Christopher J. Sotelo is a filmmaker who quit his full-time job to pursue this passion and talent with creative partner Oliver Peng. Together, they created Chris & Oliver LLC. Together, they have also created some of the most magical short films I’ve ever seen. (This opinion of mine is now a little less biased with their announcement as the #1 A-List Videographers of the Year in Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine.)
What’s the point?
Amidst life’s struggles, it’s so easy to get caught up in the daily grind. But if you’re not being true to your passions and talents, you’re not only holding yourself back; you’re impeding the impact your life could impress upon others, as well.
What’s your life’s work?
Is it what you’ve always wanted to do?
If not, what’s holding you back?
