“You Will Be A Hot Dancer”

On Thursday, I drove up to Orlando for the filming of Hustled, a student film and I can’t even tell you what it’s about. I know it takes place in the 1920s or 30s and at some point they’re in a nightclub, or speakeasy, I’m not sure if the story even falls during prohibition or not. The reason why I have no idea what the script contains is because I wasn’t acting this time… I was dancing.

I am not a dancer. I can dance. But I am not a dancer. So I was super nervous about this role. My dancer/choreographer/makeup artist friend is the one who got me involved with this project and she was also the choreographer for this scene. She assured me the dance would not be complicated but I was still incredibly anxious. This wasn’t the first time that I’ve had to perform as a dancer but still, I am not a dancer. Despite my nervousness, I did not want to pass up the opportunity to portray a burlesque dancer or even just the opportunity to perform.

I had such an amazing time! Not only was it fun to be apart of a production again, I got along really well with the other girls and perhaps made a few new friends. My hair was done for me. My makeup was done for me. I got to wear an adorable costume (that I wanted to steal so bad) AND lunch and all food were provided! Hello?

They shot the scenes from several angles each, so the four of us (the dancers) were called in intermittently. We danced for over 10 hours in heels. Throughout the day, I felt completely fine, in fact, my confidence was way boosted because (i’m pretty sure) I was rocking the sh*t out of that jazzy routine! However, the next day, my legs and ass were killing me! They were killing me, yet it felt so great! I’ve become addicted to the feeling of sore muscles recently and I was still feeling the buzz from the day of performing. I’m so happy I was apart of this.

I can’t wait to receive the still shots and reel footage to add to my digital audition portfolio. Here are a few pics from the shoot:

i ♥ makeup! especially when someone else does it for me!

va-va-va-voom. my costume!

the other girls. amazing ladies.

“Why don’t you do right, get me some money too”

i think this guy was the male lead. idk. i told him her could put his hand on my thigh either way…

*Title: “You Will Be A Hot Dancer” inspired by the song by Incubus off of Fungus Amoungus. (… i ♥ you, Brandon Boyd.)

Dorito’s Commercial shoot

Tonight, after work, I drove up to Ft. Pierce where I was asked to act in a scene for a Doritos’s commercial contest entry. One of my cast mates in “Fanfare for Murder” (We were also in “Thirds” together last year) and her friends are entering the Super Bowl commercial contest and asked me to help out.

Waiting for the take to begin.

One of my other “Fanfare…” cast mates, Troy, is also in the commercial. I had a lot of fun throughout the process. I can’t wait to see the finished project. Once I have the link information available, I’ll definitely be posting that and I certainly hope you’ll all vote for it!!

If it becomes a finalist, it will be shown during the Super Bowl!!!
