Oh yes, yes, yes, YES. Spring. Yes, thank you, please, and keep it coming. Can we skip to playtime already? This weather just makes me want to drop everything I’m doing, and start dancing. And not even in the privacy of my own home. Oh no. I’m talking about office dancing. Conveniently, my home doubles as my office company’s headquarters. So I can dance the winter away as I may see fit.
But for those of you who don’t have that same luck, and do have a boss and/or judgmental co-workers, don’t be scared of making a fool of yourself - because you most certainly will. Who cares? Do you think Jeff Koons thinks twice before doing anything he feels like doing? Ok, actually bad example. Koons is a bit of a control freak. He cares a LOT about his image. And maybe more importantly so, about how his name will be seen. Literally so. When he published the first edition of the Puppy vase, my dad summed up Koons’ persona in one sentence: « It took him a week to agree on the concept and final design of the vase, and about six months to figure out where his signature would be on the box. »
So my bad for trying to provide some comfort using a big name’s behavior. Just don’t care at all, for the sake of you. I do really want to help though, so here’s how to make your weird celebratory dance looks tasteful. Follow the lead of Octavio de la Roza, Bejart’s most wonderful dancer. And make me proud. I’m sure someone will be filming and will post that priceless video somewhere on the digital sphere.
Since you’re at it, go and take a look at the dance company de la Roza started a few years back.
