Audition Season 2020!

Thinking about all of you making decisions about where you might be tying your pointe shoes this summer and/or next season. My heart is with you all. I know it’s a huge roller coaster of a journey full of courage and unknowns.

If you’re in the midst of audition season, may you dance in the confidence of knowing your worth comes from the One who created you for a specific purpose. May you let Him choreograph your steps on this life adventure.

Remember the Bigger Story.

Keep in mind that every “no” is just confirmation of a path you weren’t supposed to take. TRUST that He knows where He wants to use you to further the Kingdom. I know it’s hard. It’s refining. It’s trading your dreams for His. But know that His dreams never disappoint when you find your delight in Him. Because in Jesus is abundant life.

Have fun and know that I’m praying for you!

Don’t hesitate to reach out here or via DM on insta if you need to talk!

much love,
Rebekah

Master Class with Dale Shields

ADK_0007

 

We are so excited to host our first monthly master class on Sunday. Our hope is that this series will foster unity and collaboration amongst the Atlanta dance community. We want to create an environment where students can dance alongside pros and we can all learn from + be inspired by one another. Hope to see you there!
Here’s a little more about our guest teacher.

DALE SHIELDS graduated from the North Carolina School of the Arts and Butler University before starting her career as a professional dancer. She rose to principal dancer with Indianapolis Ballet Theatre under artistic director George Verdak, and appeared in principal roles of many productions, including Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, Romeo & Juliet, Gaité Parisienne, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Coppélia, Night Shadow, and The Moor’s Pavane, as well as a great number of original works. She served as Principal Ballet Mistress for Ballet Internationale, where she assisted with the original choreography of several full-length ballets by artistic director Eldar Aliev and worked alongside Irina Kolpakova in staging many well-known classics. Accepting Artistic Director John McFall’s invitation to join Atlanta Ballet as Ballet Mistress gave her the opportunity to assist in mounting many full-length productions and to work with inspiring national and international choreographers.

Hi friends!

I’m compiling a list of resources to help keep the global dance community encouraged, in shape, and employed during COVID-19.

Drop me a comment through the contact page if you have any ideas/links for the following (bonus points if they are free of charge):

  • online classes for students
  • at home cross training
  • temporary work from home jobs
  • other ideas

I’ll be updating the Bluebird Uncaged website each day and have some fun ideas for us all to come together as a community.

I know we are ALL affected emotionally, financially, and relationally by this pandemic. Now is the time to be team players and share our gifts + resources. As the saying says, “life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain” Let’s dance! #uncagedcommunity

much love, Rebekah

The Creative Process behind Sterling’s Path pt. 2

T81A8509

 

Sterling's Path is a collaboration between several artists. We wanted to create an experience integrating dance, multimedia, story, and audio that sparks the imagination and engages the viewer beyond a typical "performance." We hope our audience walks away deeply inspired to be agents of Hope within their spheres of influence.

Choreographically, I want the dancers to be visible music so that's what usually drives by process. Stylistically, I come from a classical background but like to incorporate non-traditional shapes or weight changes. I also want all of my dancers to be comfortable within the roles they are performing and seek to highlight their strong points.  -Rebekah Diaddigo, artistic director and choreographer
