We all know who they are! They trained with us, they are our best friends, our worst enemies. They are the cream of the crop, the creme de la creme, the pick of the bag, the golden sheep...... ok I may have made that last one up, but you get the gist. The ones who nearly every week in professional class get offered auditions from random fellow dancers..... this happened to me once.......... but only once. For the chosen ones it happens all the time.
Green is not my favourite colour but I can reek of it at times. There is one dude (he is very much 'A Dude' who is literally taking the dance world and all its jobs with an ease and grace that makes me puke out my nostrils. He is getting work with all the interesting people that I want to work with. Ok he is very good and is also a really lovely person but who decided he was one of The Chosen Ones?
There is another 'Dude' who even when I was at yoga class, got singled out and I overheard him being offered something!! At a yoga class! Throw me a bone here please folks.
It is quite interesting to witness however and I know the grass is always greener and that it takes time. However I shall still endeavour to generate the ability to have impeccable timing and talent.
