Due to popular demand (and by popular demand, I mean one comment from one person) I have completed my previously "lost" horrifying choreography montage! Thrilling. Somehow, and I must have done this in a blackout rage because I have no memory of it, I did manage to resurrect the video files from my old busted hard drive. Goes to show you where my priorities are.
"You have limited time to save a limited about of files from your device. What do you need to recover?"
"Fuck the pictures and documents. I need my montage videos!"
Now, after seeing Nade00's dance montage, I was a little disheartened, because hers was awesome and pretty much did what I was trying to do. But then I remembered that the horrible choreography pool from which to draw from was deep, and I might be able to find additional clips that hadn't been used before. I mean, the content alone from one GymDogs meet is overwhelming.
My video is dedicated to the choreography, and not to the dance ability of the girls. Some of the athletes (victims?) in the video are actually pretty good dancers. I'd be foolish to think Courtney Kupets was a bad dancer; she obviously CAN dance. If anything, she must have a little extra dance talent in order to pull off the crap she did. Yvonne Tousek is a BRILLIANT dancer. She just did batshit crazy moves.
Sometimes performance is what makes a certain piece of an exercise laughable. The girls who just walk through the movements, to the girls who leap and prance with shit-eating grins on their faces. It's all entertaining.
Let me finish by saying that I really miss that days when dance was a part of FX. And not running, twisting leaps. Those aren't dance, no matter what the code currently says. But real creative movement, whether it was a balletic gem or a Geza Pozar masterpiece.
