Hey everyone!!… Here’s an essay I wrote about my journey with “moving” at auditions that I did for my very good friends Jesse and Elise who have a dance studio called Motivated Movers here in NYC. They work with actors on developing more confidence in their bodies so even if your primary focus is acting or singing, you’re still confident enough to dance when called upon at an audition and not look out of place. Check out the full article here!… Here’s a snippet to pique your interest (just recently learned the proper spelling of this phrase, hahaha)
“And thus my power comes from me trying to be better for myself. Whatever happens beyond that is what happens. I’m an artist, I’m an actor/singer, and I’m a mover, and I intend to be the best I can be in all of those categories at any given moment in time. I’m always working to be better and know more than the day before.”
I could not agree with this statement more. The deeper and deeper I get in to my growth as an actor I realize that “success” to me doesn’t involve recognition on a large scale – but significance does. I want my legacy to be as a leader who chose performing as a profession as opposed to a performer who occasionally led people. I see so many successfully broken people in the entertainment industries as I continue on my journey, but to me the people I consistently find myself interested in are the people who don’t milk success for it’s egotistical/economical rewards but rather find a significant purpose with which to direct success. I want to be one of those people – all of you out there, continue to hold me accountable to that goal and I will continue to make it my number one priority.
This little nugget of thought I had today is brought to you by one of my favorite people these days, Russell Wilson. Enjoy this video and this is the mentality I take towards my career; and anyone can in whatever career they participate in. Every day, no matter your level of expertise, you HAVE to actively uncover knowledge that continues your growth.
