Ok so I'm feeling EXTREMELY awkward about the following video. I've never been at ease with my body as a "physical instrument" that I can use to make things. I'm still not (can't you tell lol). When I watch this video I can only think of how tall, skinny, clumsy, confused, not focused and maybe off-beat I look.  But I also love that I'm finally willing to change and put some effort into myself for once. I didn't know I could have so much fun using this body of mine. All of this is very new and I'm as excited as I am scared AS FUCK of the person I thought I knew but I actually don't, who's no one else than my deep, complex, multifaceted, layered and hard to love self.  I love how the music resonates inside me. I love how every beat awakes a different move. I wasn't aware that I loved my culture so much, I didn't expect this part of it in particular to be the first sign of homesickness, I didn't know I would (and could) miss my island that much. I thought it was something you missed but could still live without. Like get over it after a while. Issa no. You can't. I should've known though. Ever since I arrived in Vancouver, I've only been listening to all kinds of dancehall, afrobeats, reggae. I think it came from a genuine need to compensate for the newness, the difference, the lack of bright energy that I can't find anywhere but in my roots. At some point, other kinds of music seriously pissed me off. It sounded poor, tasteless, unseasoned, shallow. I know I was wrong for that.  I mean, I am doing okay here. But deep down, I know I need this to remind me of where I come from. I can proudly say this is the part of me that's never gonna leave cause it carries too much history in me (and all over the world too). And I feel free and happy when celebrating it.  So I tell myself that maybe it's just my appearance on camera that I don't like. Because when I look at myself in the mirror before I leave the house I slay so much I get late to my appointments. And that's

🇨🇦 Big up and congratulations @venomaliance for creating and lecturing the first full semester course on Jamaican Dancehall culture in Canada at Simon Fraser University (@simonfraseru).

As a dance instructor, it is important to always stay on top of your training and learn from the best. I had mad fun learning this Dancehall in heels choreo by the fierce and extremely talented @judy.madarasz from @ketch.di.vybz during the Up and Live! workshop series this weekend 😃 • • Much respect for this dance company that I admire a ton and consider THE authority in Dancehall dance and culture in Vancouver and Canada.

🇨🇦Vancouver Bc🇯🇲 80's dancehall vibez!! I was born in the 80's so I have huge understanding, respect, and appreciation for the music and dance from this era. Growing up in Jamaica I watched the elders vibing and listening to @professornuts. In dancehall he brought comedy and told stories through his lyrics. My respect goes out to you sir!  I don't play with my culture. I teach truth. If you're teaching Dancehall I'm advising you to really educate your students about this era! #foundations. Big up to my students!
