Im gon’ get-choo

Countdown: 8 more days!

I’ve never been this excited about the Ateneo Freshmen Orientation Seminar (ORSEM) in my life. I canNOT wait to show everyone what my girls and I have been working very hard on. (Intense summer training pays off!) Even though Orsem was regrettably moved (post auditions! and thus hindering us from showing the would-be members what we’re all about), there’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that we will exert more effort into making this dance absolutely legendary! The CADs Jazz Orsem piece will hopefully be one Orsem dance we can be proud of (something we can stick with for RiB). I really have my goals set high for this dance. It IS after all my very first (and very last!) orsem dance, the very first dance I’m heading as Jazz Head, the very first time I can show off my new-generation-jazzers-who-are-gon’-kick-yo-ass! (we’re very hip hop, or at least we try) and the very first time CADs Jazz makes its mark on the freshmen.

So far, I’ve received positive comments about the piece, with just a few side notes. Hoping to fix those really soon (today! later!). But I’m very proud to say that we’ve reached a totally different level. Not only have we managed to improve our stamina by a mile (thank you gio and drew!), professionalize our training sessions and develop better musicality, but we’ve also grown to love each other and laugh our asses off every single time (Oh yeah, im gon’ get-choo!) (side note: who’s up for my DAY OF FUN? HAHA)

So, without further ado, let me introduce to you my amazingly awesome girls with their amazingly awesome skills:

DANI RODRIGUEZ
