Keeley’s Boogiezone Class

Over the past few months, I’ve really taken to heart what The Beat Freaks say.  For example, don’t get too comfortable, because it’s when you are uncomfortable that you learn and grow.  Also, take the leap and try something new.  How else are we supposed to find our passion?  I guess these Beat Freaks quotes on Twitter are really getting to me.

Last night, I decided to take that leap and take my first ever dance class.  And boy was I nervous!  Although it’s quite clear that I’m not meant to be a dancer, I had so much fun.  The anticipation and fear of embarrassment before the class were much worse than the actual results.  So, I encourage anyone who is not a dancer, no matter how old or uncoordinated, to try it.  Like Keeley told me, “At least you’ll sweat.”  Plus, there were so many people there, that hopefully I didn’t stick out too much (they were all really good too).

Keep your eye out for the video on Boogiezone’s youtube channel (I didn’t dance when they were taking video, so you won’t be able to see how lost I really was).  About the class…Keeley taught us some old school moves to De La Soul’s ‘Me Myself and I.’  Then we learned the lockin’ portion of the Beggin’ routine, which apparently Keeley choreographed in collaboration with Hok from Quest Crew.  Although I had seen The Beat Freaks perform this routine a million times on television and Youtube, it was still very difficult to pick up.

After the class, we had the opportunity to sit down with Keeley and have an informal interview with her.  She let us know how she describes Beat Freaks fashion and also her individual style, who she would like to see try out for ABDC, and she gave some great advice for those who are still looking for their dream to freak.  The full interview will be posted later this week.
