Dancing in Boston.
The first time I was here.
The second time I came here.
I got out of bed.
I had my headphones on and I went out to dance.
That was the first time.
The third time I went.
The fourth time I danced.
The fifth time I did that.
The sixth time I got into it.
The seventh time I tried it.
But it was too late.
I was gone.
And I thought, Oh, I’m gonna die tonight.
It’s too late to get back out there.
But the people were so nice to me.
The guys were so good to me too.
They were so supportive.
And they helped me with my training.
They taught me how to do things.
And the other guys were like, Oh my God.
And that was it.
I wasn’t going to make it to the next dance.
So I walked out and started doing this thing called dance class.
And it’s a thing where you have to do a whole lot of things at once.
It takes like a couple hours.
And every time I wanted to do something, I had to do it in a certain order.
I needed to do these steps and then I had one step to do this.
It was so confusing.
So you’ve got to be like a master at something.
And you have the other people around you to help you out.
You have to make them do these things.
But you can’t do everything at once, because you have all these other things to do.
And sometimes you can just run out of ideas.
But that’s how it was.
It took a lot of practice to make sure I was working with each one of these people.
It just takes a lot to get the dance moves right.
And all these people I was hanging out with, they would just say, “Do this, do that.”
They were like a bunch of brothers.
I’m just kind of one of them.
So it took a while to get used to that.
And then it was like, “Okay, I can do this.”
But it’s kind of hard to say, I just did it.
You’ve got this feeling when you’re doing something, and then you’re like, Yeah, it’s going well.
And now I’m going to try something else.
I don’t know.
But then the next time I want to do that thing, I have to go back to the same thing.
And so, I ended up doing a lot more things.
I think I still do a lot.
I did a lot better at my dance class and everything.
I learned a lot about myself.
And how to be kind of a nice person.
But I think all the things I did I still haven’t perfected.
So the more I did it, the more things I still had to learn.
I didn’t have the same confidence.
So when I was in college, I did things like go out and dance.
I still wanted to go out there and do dance.
But in my early twenties, I started thinking, “Wait a minute.
I’ve got so much going on here.
How am I going to do everything?”
And then I was like okay, I don.
I just want to go home and sleep.
It didn’t work that way.
So now I know I need to learn how to dance to do more things, because I have so much more to learn about myself and how to behave and do the things that I need.
And there’s not a lot I can learn that I don-t already know.
You don’t have to be a dancer to do anything.
There are so many things you can learn.
And if you know how to read a dance routine, you can read a song.
There’s so many different things you could learn from a dance, you could be a choreographer.
You could be an assistant choreographer, you know?
There’s just so many ways you can do things with dance.
If you know what you’re looking for, you’re gonna find it.
