My 2012.

EVENTS

Eusoff Hall Dance Production 2011/2012 – Till Death Do Us Part

Due to my busy commitments, I decided to only join one dance this time, and man, it was tough! Fel’s dance was difficult for me on many counts – the technicalities in the choreography, lifts (I was never strong to begin with), emotions (I had to build myself up to the verge of crying), chemistry between me and my partner – thank you Khym! I’m really blessed to be partnered with you, you’re such an amazing dancer! I always thought I couldn’t match up to you but I definitely tried my best.

It was also the DP that my best friends Jason and Eunice were producers of. They were nothing short of incredible, I doubt I would be able to do such a big job like that! Really proud of you guys. 🙂

SPARKS 2012

Finalists for SPARKS! Eusoff A Cappella really has come a long way. I loved every moment in our a cappella practices, and I wished we could’ve been better to clinch an award. But well, it was a good experience.

Chingay 2012

Another crazy experience this year! Choreographing Chingay proved to be a feat. Managing 150 dancers, teaching them choreography and blocking, together with all the administrative work is seriously no joke. I am thankful for everyone who decided to participate in Chingay, and special shoutouts to the non-Eusoff and non-Temasek students from all over NUS who joined! 🙂

It wouldn’t have been possible without the Chingay comm (Alston!!), and my two co-choreographers, Wilfred and Joy. Thank you Wilfred for going through fire and ice with me since Rag, and to Joy who agreed to suffer with us despite your busy schedule!

Amplitude 2012

Participated as a member of Eusoff Choir and Eusoff A Cappella. Singing with the the choir was definitely fun and there was even couple choreography! It was really a breathtaking experience under Eusoff A Cappella though – there was no Amplitude in 2011, and this year under the awesome guidance of Pamela we managed to send out 3 groups to perform. I’m really happy that Eusoff A Cappella has come such a long way. 🙂

Dance Uncensored 2012

As I was worried about my studies, I again only took part in the combined hall item (like last year). I have to say I really regretted it though, because I really wanted to represent Eusoff in Dance Uncensored. >< But but but! Combined Item was really awesome. The people in it, our dear choreographers Enid and Huichuan, every second spent, everything. It was a meaningful journey for all of us I’m sure! 🙂

I treasured every single piece of memory I’ve gained through this. :’)

Shut Up And Dance! 2012 – A Night of Glitz and Glamour

425783_536880443004615_2099922423_n

My first SUAD since becoming a member of NUS Dance Blast! I guess this was the period when I really took dance seriously, and I really learnt a lot from all the items I’m in. The experience is one that I just can’t describe. Every single Blast!ard put in their sweat and tears to practice hard, sacrificed their social lives, just for this single unforgettable night.

Thank you my choreographers – BFS, Jasper, and our resident choreographer Pat.

EH Musical

This was a small internal hall event, but it meant a lot to me – as it was the first a cappella performance that I did solo. It was definitely scary but fun! And I have so much to learn when it comes to singing solo as I don’t have a lot of experiences.

Congratulations to Mereith for getting engaged with Nina! I absolutely loved being part of this amazing project. 🙂

O School Recital 2012 – The Journey Within

150682_10151184118163471_429302641_n

Definitely the biggest concert I’ve ever done in my life! I was so happy when I passed the audition, because I really didn’t think I would – I only started going for O School classes in June! I was blessed to dance with #teamskinnyronnie – a really awesome and cheerful bunch of people.

And Ronnie! You don’t know how much respect I have for you man, you really taught me so much, not only in dancing but also in character. The experience was, oh my gawd, undescribable.

EXPERIENCES

Internship @ Canvass Research & Analytics

My very first internship, where I was required to develop an iPhone app (check it out here). My boss was really nice and so was my colleague – it really made my first internship (albeit a small one) memorable.

O School

I finally went for O School dance classes during the summer vacation, and I’m really glad I did! There’s so much to learn over there, so many amazing instructors and dancers, and it was what ultimately led me to join the O School Recital. I didn’t regret not going earlier though, as I wouldn’t have the necessary skills to learn from the fast-paced classes beforehand.

Eusoff Hall Dance Production 2012/2013

Hasn’t really happened yet (come support us @ 1st February, UCC Hall!), but I am co-choreographing one dance together with my buddies Jason and Yanxin, and dancing in another. It’s my first time choreographing for Eusoff DP and I’m excited and nervous about it! I’m really glad to have this opportunity to put our ideas into performing.

RANDOMS I’VE ATTENDED

TH DP

  1. Xian You, you are such a talented dude! Don’t stop chasing your dreams and passion! By the way, you forgot to mention you won the Cultural Medalion 😛

    1. Thanks Pam! I’m just doing what I love 🙂 And no lah, putting that is like showing off lor. Besides, I really did less than what I did last year to deserve winning it another time. Haha.
