14th Nike convention in Ljubljana

March 7, 2010 § Leave a comment

This was a special weekend for all us freaks, who love the art of aerobics. 🙂 Yes, I call it art, cause it’s not easy to keep up with these world trends… it’s not easy to please the audiences… and it does require a kind of a creative soul to do it :P… But besides that, this is a fun piece of art. 🙂 I had a lot of fun this weekend, cause after a long time I got a chance to just enjoy the classes, not make and give them. I loved every single one of them. Ofcourse my number one stars were Jessica Exposito and Balazs Fuzessy. I was surprised to see myself jumping around even on the last class, cause normally one gets too tired to do the last class (there were only 50sth left of us) and the class was not the easiest one. But it was one of the best. Ah, it’s useless to say which was good and which wasn’t. They were all great. The only one I didn’t like was the football driven class from Marko Geršak. I’m sorry, this is my blog, so I can write open-hearted. I did’t like that one, it really lacked creativity. But everything else – pure perfection! 🙂 This year I kinda avoided the dancing hall and stuck to aerobic-one… I guess the level of the dancing is just a bit too high in that hall for me… My mind is not as fresh and fit for absorbing hiphop choreographies as it used to be. Though I know there were some awesome classes by Nikkie Riozzi, Larz Schuijling, Željko Božič etc. To keep the long story short – fabulous weekend and now it’s time for regeneration… Back to reality… Back to work 😉

OK, this is just one of those must-read interviews. I loved Tony Stone’s classes in Slovenia (he was here twice already), but learning how such a great performer and choreographer started off is even more inspiring. Please meet one of the most exciting, top world hiphop, street, jazz etc. choreographers (and music producers) Tony Stone. I recommend reading till the end, cause we saved the best for last 🙂 🙂

A little bird told me you only started teaching when you were 35? How did that happen
Actually my sisters were already taking classes as a hobby to keep in shape. They had such a wonderful time at it they talked me into coming in and trying it out knowing that I loved dancing and did it as a solo competitor from time to time. I was able to catch onto and pick up choreography very well, I was noticed and then asked to start performances professionally. That happened when I was 35.



Do you still have fun on each convention you give?
I do. Of course, with the heavy touring schedule I have there are times when I’m very tired at a particular event or convention but that certainly doesn’t take away from my enjoyment. I have always promised myself that if I stopped having fun, it would to time to wrap it up and walk away. I don’t see that happening anytime in the near future. « Read the rest of this entry »
