#Repost @nytimes ・・・ #SpeakingInDance | “It’s sprinting,” Asha Singh said about the challenge of performing energetic dance numbers as a member of the @brooklynettes, the dance team of the @brooklynettes. “It’s all stamina.” And beyond that, said Pamela Gaccione, a co-captain of the team along with Asha and Kathryn Mulcahey, “It’s staying on your mark and making sure you’re in line with your friends.” In this lively number (a remix of Puff Daddy’s “All About the Benjamins” and Notorious BIG’s “Juicy” drives it along), the dancers — who perform 2 numbers at each home game at the @barclayscenter — play with dynamics. “We have the opportunity to hit some things really hard,” Asha said, “and then to milk and smooth other parts and to throw some texture into it.” But it really comes down to the feeling. “How we can really bring the vibe and the style of Brooklyn into this piece,” Asha told the @nytimes writer @giadk. “We value cleanliness, just like all dance teams do, but beyond that, we value style. We want to make sure that the essential Brooklyn comes through.” @adamgolfer made this video for #SpeakingInDance , our weekly series exploring the world of #dance .
