Messy Dance Bags: How to Keep Them Organized

A common problem faced by dancers all over the world is having disorganized dance bags. Worrying about ballet bags may seem like a silly concern, but a messy dance bag can actually cause you a lot of problems. For one, thing, it is really annoying to lug around a huge ballet bag, and can be bad for your back in the same way carrying a pile of textbooks is hard on the back. Dancing is bad enough for your back already-you don't need to create extra strain with a heavy dance bag!

The first step is choosing a good ballet bag. The best dance bags are durable and have several pockets for organizing. The ballet bag should have at least one large compartment for storing shoes. A few good ballet bags are the Capezio Duffel Dance Bag, the Capezio Convertible Duffel Bag, the Capezio Children's Dance Bag, the Horizon Dance Gear Duffel, the Horizon Dance Essential Gear Bag, the Bloch Multicompartment Dance Bag, and the Sassi Dance Quilted Backpack.

Don't put anything in your ballet bag until you have figured out exactly what needs to go in it. For a ballet dancer, a ballet bag must have flat ballet shoes, pointe shoes, resin, toe pads, tape, leg-warmers, a leotard, tights, hair pins, hair binders, a brush or comb, hair spray, deodorant, healthy snacks (such as granola bars), and a water bottle.

The items needed in your dance bag will vary depending on the type of dance you'll be practicing. Some dancers will need few of the items listed above for the ballet bag, while others will need the ballet bag supplies and many other items for other styles of dance. Typically, you'll want the shoes and clothing appropriate for the style of dance, plus the hair supplies, water bottle, healthy snacks and deodorant.

If you tend to get beat up feet a lot, you may want to add a foot care kit to your dance bag. Many dancers have found that keeping foot care kits in their ballet bags saved them from a lot of unnecessary pain and suffering. Stock your foot care kit with tape, band-aids, mole-skin bandages (for blisters), foot lotion, foot deodorizer, blister salve, Ace bandages, a toenail clipper, cotton balls, liquid bandage, and Icy Hot. Many dancers also find it beneficial to have some sort of Athlete's foot spray (such as Dr. Scholl's) in their dance bags as well. Athlete's foot is extremely annoying, but if you have it, wiping off your feet and spraying them with Athlete's foot spray after class ends can eliminate the problem.

When you pack items in your ballet bag, be sure to keep like items together. Use mesh bags to store your ballet shoes and toe pads, or foot thongs, tap shoes, etc. together. If you keep all your dance shoes loose in your dance bag you will be more likely to lose them. This is especially true for toe pads and foot thongs which are small and extremely easy to lose. Keep your toe pads or foot thongs together in a small bag and keep track of them because they aren't cheap to replace.

Keeping your dance bag organized will make life a lot easier for you-your ballet bag will be easier to carry and you won't have to waste all your time between classes digging through your dance bag. And messy dance bags lead to lost dance shoes! So take the time to keep your ballet bag clean.

Metal Music Needs a New Savior

Pantera's fifth album titled "Cowboys from Hell" was released on July 24th 1990 and in my opinion it saved metal in the 90's. Pantera came out and waved the flag of true metal and did not listen to critics and blew the music world away. We need a band to do the same thing now. Metal music has become too cookie cutter. So many bands with the same look and sound, it's annoying.

It's almost like a repeat of the 80's hair band years where if you looked and sounded a certain way you would make it big. Back then you had: Poison, Ratt, Great White, Cinderella, Bullet Boys, Faster Pussycat. We have the same deal now where you can name a dozen bands that sound and look the same. Like Fall Out Boy, Taking Back Sunday, Panic at the Disco, My Chemical Romance, Silverstein, 30 Seconds to Mars. All the songs have a melody then a screaming part then a breakdown then some more screaming and more melody. Nirvana smashed the 80's hair band's and we need someone to smash music once again.

Just like in the 80's there are a few decent bands pulling out of the muck of all the others. In the 80's it was Motley Crue, Skid Row and Guns and Rose's that stuck out as true talents to me. Bands such as THRICE and Rise Against are good. Their music is more than just radio friendly screaming and melody, it's got some content to it. And at first I thought Avenged Sevenfold fell into this category. But they are one of the newest bands that are as close to old school metal as possible these days with great guitar riffs and lyrics to match.

Who could possible become the savior or metal for the decade of 2000? Bands like Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, Hatebreed or Velvet Revolver? It could be any of them or it could be someone totally undiscovered. Hopefully someone will bust out and save metal like Pantera did in the 90's. We just need a band to come out and have an album that redefines metal. I'm not sure if one band can come out and do it, maybe a whole new movement. We need something or we could all be doomed to listening to cookie cutter screaming metal forever.

If you want to see more proof of the cookie cutter music and get a laugh too, just check out the video comedian and metalhead Brian Posehn made called "Metal by numbers" that's located on his myspace page (http://www.myspace.com/brianposehn) It's a song that follows the blueprint of this music and explains what the blueprint is. He got help from Scott Ian of Anthrax to record this song.

Master of Fine Arts: What It Is and What It Can Do For You

In times of economic stress, going back to school and completing a degree program becomes an attractive option for many. There are many different kinds of programs to choose from, ranging from the familiar master's and doctorate tracks to specialized degrees, such as the juris doctor (J.D.) program offered at most U.S. law schools. However, for students in the arts, there is one commonly sought degree: the MFA.

MFA stands for master of fine arts, and is exactly as advertised: a graduate degree for students wishing to pursue advanced studies in one or more of the fine arts. There are multiple areas in which an MFA can be earned: acting, sculpting, photography, music, and dance are only a few of the areas available. However, especially in smaller universities, the most common MFA program is generally creative writing. Within this category, degree specialties available usually include fiction, nonfiction and poetry, although other specialties, such as screenwriting, are not uncommon. MFA programs generally last two to three years for full-time students.

Most MFA programs require that an applicant already have an undergraduate degree; however, the degree need not be in the same field. For example, my MFA is in creative writing, but my undergraduate degree is in mathematics. As part of the application process, a portfolio of previously completed work, or an audition in some cases, is required for acceptance. Portfolios can range widely in size and substance; if applying to study in an MFA program, pay careful attention to the program's requirements.

An MFA is not to be confused with a master of arts (MA) degree; the goals and foci of each program are different. In an MA program, the course of study is generally very academic and focused on critical theory and analysis of a given specialty. The MFA, on the other hand, is very much geared toward the practice of the art itself. Thus, an MA in, for example, modern literature will focus on close readings of the material studied, detailed analysis and the ability to concatenate research and critical readings in the field into original ideas and arguments. An MFA, while covering similar ground in theory and analysis to a lesser extent, is designed to train a student to write more effectively in their given field.

Another difference, and perhaps a more important one, is that while both degrees contribute to an academic career, the MFA is considered a terminal degree, which means that it is the end point of studies in that field and is sufficient academic credential (along with other qualifications) to obtain a professorship. The MA, while valuable, is not considered a terminal degree. There are Ph.D. programs in the fine arts, but obtaining one isn't necessary for professorship.

While teaching at the university level is the primary goal for most MFA seekers, it isn't the only reason to pursue the degree. Many students take MFA coursework as preparation for working as teachers, editors or other creative positions. Others take on MFA studies to become more familiar with the art, to become better practitioners. An MFA is a narrowly focused degree, but once it's in hand, it can open unexpected doors. For those reasons, the MFA can be expected to be a popular choice for many students for years to come.

Outfitting Your Swing Dance Bag

Now that you've attended a few swing dances and are or are thinking about taking classes, you may have noticed that most dancers, both men and women, bring a bag with them. There are a few key things that your dance bag should be outfitted with to make your dance experience fun and comfortable.

  1.  Swing Dance Shoes (and socks, if needed)
    Outfitting yourself with the appropriate shoes will keep your feet comfortable and will help make your swing dance moves smoother. And, if nothing else, dancers notice when you've bought a pair of swing dance shoes. There are several reasons for this, not the least of which is that those shoes are an investment. Dancers can see that if you've committed to buying a good pair of dance shoes, or have paid to get a great pair of Keds sueded, you're serious about becoming a good dancer and you're committed to learning.
    You've probably also noticed that swing dancers always bring a bag with them and change into their shoes to dance and change them again before they leave. The bottoms of swing dance shoes are not made for outside use, and you'll keep your shoes in tip-top condition if you only wear them on the dance floor. Bleyers brand dance shoes are the one exception to this; if you can find this brand of dance shoe, their soles are made to go anywhere and will keep for years. But, to keep them in tip-top shape, change your shoes before you leave.
    And don't forget your socks, if needed (many women's slingback styles don't need socks, but need nylons). So keep a fresh pair of socks in your dance bag so you can always stay light on your feet.
  2.  A clean shirt (or two or three)
    Swing dancing is a hot and sweaty activity, and even on the coolest of nights, if you're dancing a lot you are going to sweat. Make sure you change your shirt a few times throughout the night to keep you and your partner dry. Most dancers understand that we all get hot and sweaty while we dance, but you can keep it to a minimum. Don't be shy and change your shirt frequently during the night. Ladies, if you wear a dress, be prepared with a full change of clothes. It's perfectly acceptable and you'll be fresh enough to keep dancing all night.
  3.  A bottle of water
    Again, swing dancing is a hot and sweaty activity (if you're not sweating, you're not dancing enough!). You'll want to make sure that you keep yourself hydrated with a bottle of water or two throughout the night. And water makes sure that you're not adding in any of those extra calories that you're burning off back in while hydrating you and keeping you cool. Trust me on this one, the one thing you don't want to forget is your water bottle.
  4.  A hair clip for long hair
    If you're dancing a lot during the night, there will come a point where your hair is just not going to look good anymore, no matter how great your victory rolls or spit curls looked. A hair tie will keep your hair looking great and will help keep you cool.
  5.  Hand sanitizer
    Unless you're going to be making regular trips to wash your hands, hand sanitizer is a must. You're going to be coming in contact with a lot of people throughout the night and you'll be holding the hand of many. Hand sanitizer will help keep you and your partners healthy and ensure that any germs you come in contact with will bite the dust.
  6.  Deodorant
    You want to smell as good as you look. 'Nuff said.
  7.  Gum and breathmints
    Again, you want your breath to be as fresh as the rest of you.
  8.  A notebook and pen
    There are several reasons that I always advocate having a notebook and pen with you. The first is that during a lesson or the dance you might learn a killer step that you'll want to remember how to do later and you'll want to write it down. The second reason is that you might want to get/give a phone number. I realize you have a cell phone to take all of that information down, but your cell might not be handy/not working so it's always good to have an easy backup solution in case you need to give your digits to that hep cat or swingin' betty you've been eyeing all night.

By keeping your dance bag stocked and ready to go at all time, you'll be able to Lindy bomb even the squarest of joints and be ready to kick up your heels at a moments notice. Have fun and keep dancing!

How to Get Your Child into the Arts

Most parents nowadays want their children to have more than they did and this includes extra activities outside of school. As a parent, you may have thought of getting your child into the arts. What does that include? What would like your son or daughter to do? Do you see they have a natural inclination for Art? Are they bouncing along with the radio and love to sing? If your child is between the ages of two and three, you may want to put them in a program that explores not only dancing but singing as well. This is great way to get your child used to classes and being with other kids. Look for places that have Mommy and Me music classes, Kinder music, Preschool Dance classes or Dance Plus class. These classes will focus on the music and movement not particular steps.

How do you know where to start? Your first inclination will be to Google “performing arts in such and such town.” You get will a long list of Dance studios, Ballet Companies, Theater companies, Martial Arts studios and much more. Picking one from this list will give you headache right from the beginning. In the Google search results, look to see if any of the studios have reviews and select the studios with the highest star rating. If the locations is close enough to home, call the first three and make an appointment to view the studio.

You may meet with office staff that is very knowledgeable about the studio’s policies and procedures. They should give you a tour of the facilities. Make note of the general cleanliness of the studio. Are the art supplies put away or they soaking in the sink or scattered haphazardly? You want have your child learn the proper care of their supplies and not have expensive art supplies ruined. Remember your child maybe rolling around or sitting on the floors during classes so they must be clean!

If possible, try to visit during when classes are in session and getting ready to end. This way you can see how the Instructor interacts with “tired” children. Pay particular attention how the children treat the instructor when they leave. They should be excited and want to see him or her again and show them respect. See if the instructor has a decent repertoire with the other parents. A good instructor will have some eye contact with the parents and maybe a little wave. She should be open to discussing any problems or concerns with the students.

Next, evaluate the pricing including any extraneous fees. Tuition for dance classes are usually monthly, art classes are pay per session, while theater classes maybe paid for per production. Ask about costuming, will you have to purchase or is it part of tuition. Inquire about material fees and what are included and if you can buy your own materials. Keep in mind many Arts centers get a hefty discount so it maybe to your fiscal advantage to go with the Center’s materials.

Kindly thank the staff, take the information and look at the other places. Registration for Arts Centers usually coincides with school schedules with a Fall and Summer registration. Find out when the cut off for registration is so if this is the place for you can get a spot in your preferred classes.

Finding a good Arts Center can be daunting if you have not been part of the performing arts community. A parent wants to find a studio that is close enough to home, priced competitively, values children and wants to see them successful. Good Arts Center classes fill up quickly! Selecting the right Arts Center will be the bring joy and unforgettable memories to you and your children for many years.

JFC Movies Review: Source Code

Source Code (*** / ****)
Starring:
Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright
Director: Duncan Jones

We've all encountered motion pictures that have their own set of rules that exist as an explanation for inevitable plot implausibilities, which in turn are spawned by unnecessarily complex backstories that clog an already engaging plot in attempt to crank up its intellectualism. While we're in a state of excitement as we watch, we're then left still wringing our brains like a washcloth while the closing credits roll, and ultimately feel like a dope for not getting the gist of it all (while, naturally, assuming everyone else has).

Source Code is not immune from this category, but it's more than forgivable because it doesn't thump its chest with pride over its pretentiousness. Strip it away and we still get a wholly engrossing film, thanks to sharp direction by Duncan Jones and a wonderfully engaging performance by Jake Gyllenhaal as Colter Stevens, a decorated pilot who wakes up and finds himself aboard a Chicago commuter train. Sitting across from him is a lovely young woman named Christina (Michelle Monaghan, with not much to do here). Not only does he have no idea who she is, he doesn't know where he is or what he's doing on the train in the first place. The last thing Colter remembers is flying a mission in Afghanistan. As if that wasn't enough, he's also shocked to discover the strange face staring back at him in the train's restroom mirror. Not only does he look nothing like Jake Gyllenhaal, the ID in his wallet identifies him as a teacher named Sean.

Then the train blows up in a huge fireball, killing all aboard, but Colter awakens unharmed inside a small isolated pod in his flight gear. Of course, he's unsure as to why he's in here ("Where am I?" he inevitably asks), as well as the mysterious uniformed woman whom he sees addressing him through a small monitor. This is Colleen Goodwin (Vera Farmiga), whom he believes is spearheading some kind of military simulation in which he's whisked back onto the train, where he has eight minutes to hunt down the bomber responsible for the explosion before it reoccurs.

The action plays out like a live-action video game, as Colter is repeatedly unable to find the suspect before having to start over after each ensuing blast, but he discovers key clues in the process and tries to put them to use in subsequent reattempts. He soon learns that the bomber is planning a more massive attack on Chicago if he's not soon fished out and caught.

Colter soon learns from Goodwin's superior, Dr. Rutledge (Jeffrey Wright), that he's a guinea pig in a government experiment called the Source Code, a program that enables the crossing over into someone's identity during the last eight minutes of his life. It's essentially a violent, futuristic Groundhog Day. Why only eight, though? And why can Colter, and not the other passengers, remember details from every previous episode on the train while going into the next eight? And is the ending quite the copout?

Ben Ripley's otherwise intelligent script doesn't give his hero the best detective skills, either: Colter discerns that since the explosive device onboard (located in the bathroom, where else?) is activated by cell phone to detonate once in the vicinity of a freight train, the bomber must know exactly when both trains will interact. This is not possible unless the suspect is somewhere up above in a helicopter, since he certainly wouldn't be able to see anything at ground level.

All this aside, Source Code is a proficient find-the-bomber suspense tale, though it is a tad predictable to have a larger-scale attack looming ahead; the suspect could've just put all his eggs in that basket instead of bothering with a few hundred passengers on a commuter train.

Colter's desperation is palpable as he carefully observes the passengers in attempt to weed out his target, even though we already know the first few people he singles out are going to be Law and Order-style red herrings. Gyllenhaal imbues his character with vital humanity in the otherwise cynical and dispassionate surroundings of his train car (including an ill-tempered stand-up comic whose own small denouement at the end is a delight to watch). He begins to develop feelings for Christina the more he interacts with her, and is also incensed at the lack of answers from his superiors in regards to the experiment, which makes him weary in body but never in spirit. The decision to not have Gyllenhaal go down the predictable action-hero route more than enough compensation for the overcomplicating of the storyline. Now if there were only a real-life Source Code experiment to determine why he signed on to last year's wasteland that was Prince of Persia.

Five Movies that Make You Think

Movies aren't always only for entertainment. Some movies make you think, or raise moral questions, along the lines of the ABC News show called What Would You Do? You don't have to experience the situation in person to ask yourself or think about what you'd do if it was happening to you.

Here are five great movies that make you think, that ask "what would you do?"

The Contender. Joan Allen stars as a vice presidential nominee who has her reputation dragged through the mud during the confirmation process, when a college sex party is brought to light. Although in private she denies vehemently her participation in the sexual incident, she refuses to do so in the hearings, standing on the principle that the incident should not be a consideration in her confirmation.

What would you do? Would you stand on principle and do nothing as your name and reputation, and by association, that of your family as well, were being trashed for something you didn't do?

Waking Ned Devine. This movie makes you think about the nature of community; it centers around a very small town that bands together to cash in a winning lottery ticket that belonged to a deceased resident. The plan will only work if every resident agrees; but that raises the question of what would happen to a dissenter.

What would you do if your entire community, every person you knew, asked you to do something that was against your moral or ethical code?

A Murder of Crows. There are several ethical question raised in this movie, which stars Cuba Gooding Jr. The one that's really intriguing is what happens when Gooding's character is given a manuscript–a really good, fully complete manuscript–by a man who later dies without family, friends, and perhaps most important, without agent or publisher.

What would you do? Would you pass on it, or would you take the manuscript, publish it under your own name and reap the rewards?

The Emperor's Club. Kevin Kline stars as a professor at a prestigious boys' school, where some of the students are under great pressure; one of those students is also a cheater. Should he report the boy, or let it go, and how will this decision affect other students?

What would you do? Would you give a second chance, and hope that the generous opportunity helps the boy, or would you stick to the rules and report the infraction?

John Q. Denzel Washington stars as a man who has health insurance, although it won't cover his son's life-saving operation. Despite his pleas for treatment, the hospital refuses.

What would you do? Would you accept the hospital's denial, knowing it meant the death of your child, or would you do anything to get him the care he needed? How far would you go?

Movies that make you think about yourself, about the world around you and your place in it can be important because every bit of insight we have into ourselves makes us a better person. The beauty of the movies listed above is that the call to look inward is subtle enough that if viewers want only to be entertained, they can be, because these are very enjoyable movies.

Don't Eliminate Your Debt, Attract Abundance!

All over the world people are moaning about all the debt that they have accumulated. I used to always worry about the debt that I had. Seven years of college loans put me in the hole and I was constantly thinking about it. The more I focused on that debt, the worse I felt. Now, if you've watched the movie, The Secret, you know that these bad feelings seemed to attract more and more debt into my life! It may sound weird, but it's true.

Did you know that what you think about is what you attract? If you're thinking that you need to pay your debt or you need to pay your bills, did you know that these thoughts are attracting more debt and more bills? Are you attracting abundance right now? How do you go about attracting abundance?

Take The Word "Debt" Out Of Your Vocabulary
Instead of thinking that you need to "cut your debt", why not think about making more money? The word debt is a negative word – it instills a thinking of lack. In other words, you feel a sense of worthlessness. And if like attracts like, then you know that this negative thinking attracts negative thinking, right? So, stop thinking negative!

Other words or phrases you may want to take out of your vocabulary are "broke", "don't have enough", "I'm short on money", etc. When you say these words, they only imprint onto your subconscious and you will continue to be broke and will continue to not have enough.

Start Thinking About Money and Increasing Your Income
If you really, really want to attract more money into your life, you should start thinking about money instead the lack of! Start brainstorming ways in which you can start increasing your income. There are endless ways to make money nowadays with the internet. I highly recommend reading the book, Multiple Streams of Income and Multiple Streams of Internet Income by Robert G. Allen.

Fake It Til You Make It
Just imagine right now how you would feel if FedEx showed up at your door with a check for one million dollars? I don't know about you, but I would feel great! Do you believe that it could happen? I do!

The idea here is to stimulate those feelings of joy and happiness because happy and joyous is how you will feel when you do start increasing your income and paying off your bills.

Practice Being Wealthy
What do wealthy people do? From this day forward, you should act as if you are already wealthy because you already are! Think about all the things you will do, all the places you will see, and all the people you are going to help. Start reading biographies about rich people like Warren Buffett or read magazines like Forbes. Get a wealthy mindset!

It's going to take some time to change your money mindset, but when you do you'll start to notice all the different money-making opportunities that start to pop up into your life! Debt? What debt?

MTV: Where Has the Music Gone?

MTV stands for Music Television. Music Television. Music, as in songs. They started with their revolutionary ideas in 1981, back in the days when music was something you listened to. Nobody believed there would be any interest in a TV station that showed nothing but music clips. They were wrong. It didn’t take too long for MTV to become so influential that having a decent clip was almost more important than having a decent song. VJ’s got rock-star status and could make or break a song. MTV became a style, a brand more than just a TV-station. Their fast-paced filming style and informal interviews quickly became the standard for a new generation of teenagers to grow up with. As interest grew, MTV realized that different nations listen to different music and daughter stations appeared all over the world. The future was bright and shiny. But somehow, they lost it all…..

Rather than sticking to what they did best, MTV decided to have non-music related shows as well. They still appealed to the youngsters, with Beavis and Butthead becoming the icons for kids all over the world. A few years later, and MTV went a step further. Reality TV had taken over the whole world, and in an attempt to keep up with modern times, the whole world could follow the daily adventures of The Osbournes, a real-life family as close to The Simpsons as they come. Ozzy already was a caricature of himself by the time they aired the show, but the rest of the family grabbed the opportunity to stardom with both hands.

Encouraged by the popularity of the show, MTV went further and further and after defying the boundaries of good taste for a while, crossed them completely with some ‘Real Life Shows’ that range from gross to sickening to everything in between. Where there was still some humor to be found in programs like Jackass, the last batch of shows have taken a deep dive for the worse. Dating shows, The Real Life,Pimp My Ride, quality is no longer the standard and the worst yet had to come.

The all-time winner in bad taste has to be I want a famous face, a reality show where we follow some youngsters who want to look like their idol and undergo plastic surgery in order to do so. We’re talking about normal looking guys who think girls will suddenly fall in love with them because they get their cheekbone lifted or young girls who obviously will become famous actresses after breast implants, nose corrections and new eyebrows. Most of them look nothing like their idol afterward, nor do they achieve their goals, which makes an already sad show even worse. Not one of this shows has got anything to do with music.

I want my MTV, but not like this.
