I Learned How To Dance In 30 DaysMay 31, 2021
Hi, I'm Ashley and I want to learn how to be sexy, you probably know me as the awkward girl in Sue's pilot, I've always felt very comfortable playing that character, I think it's a lot of fun to fall down and make weird faces and how can I not know how to flirt with people, but in my real life that awkwardness has translated into who I really am. I think a lot of people ask me why
danceto feel sexy because I think there are so many other things you can do to feel sexy, but to me the most confident people are when they're on a
dancefloor feeling themselves and with I looked amazing and I've never felt like this with my body I went through puberty early I was taller than everyone else I wasn't very good at being feminine I slouched a lot and just wasn't comfortable being myself I basically categorized myself as the type of girl that is smart and not the type of girl that is beautiful or sexy the rules of this video is that i am going nna dance i will do it in 30
daysand i will do it in front of my whole office when i got the idea to dance i knew i needed a dance instructor and i called kyle hot egami and i called i mean i slipped into his dms kyle is an amazing choreographer works on youtube has videos that have over a hundred million views has worked with jlo has worked on abc has tr Down with Dancing with the Stars has been literally everywhere and I wanted someone who could really teach me how to dance well once I convinced Kyle to do the video with me, he recruited his three coolest ladies, Hailey, Emma and Ashley, to come help me learn to dance and they became my first dancing moms.
What happened after I agreed to do this. I called Kyle and told him I don't know what to wear to dance and he said oh I just eat loose dance clothes. I had no idea what that meant for the first class I had. to do Kyle had me do an industry class that is only with people People who only have talent agents I showed up in a pink hoodie to a professional dance class where I had never danced before and everyone was wearing black. Kyle wanted to launch with the sharks so I started at the top and quickly went to the top.
Super Bowl, you did amazing for the first class. I was going into advanced calculus before I
learnedaddition, yeah, so I mean we're going to start at the top and back things up and make sure you have a solid foundation to build on here. let's go 30 more
days30 more days is going to be amazing after that class i realize i don't have dance clothes or dance shoes like what i need and he said something like they should go with something that doesn't show you sweat. I'm going to want speakers and then for girls it's always important to wear heels which I haven't had a pair of heels for 4 years and he was shocked Kyle and Hailey went to the mall to buy me a pair of heels and dancing heels have to be very specific they have to have structure around the ankle so you don't wobble all over the place and i'm probably one of the most naturally awkward people you'll ever meet they made me walk around and do a little twist that was the first time i really felt vulnerable and had very scared of what was to come and then day one came, dance camp, so we're just walking the floor, all we're going to do is walk the floor, walking translates to every style of dance, so just walk to the beat as you walk to the beat seven eight walk one no it's not the beat I thought when I got here we'd just start choreographing but I realize we have I have to do the foundation of everything and that's actually the things I feel most self conscious about Wow oh my gosh okay one thing I realized in that class is I don't make eye contact with anybody and I'm an actor.
I'm going to stand on the other side. Wanna. that you made eye contact with me all the time and wah but walking around felt li I trust that making eye contact really helps and then by the time I had to keep adding things it's like a mind freeze that happens again. Now what I want you to do is give me a walk, step, triple step and walk walk and triple step okay after your triple step I want you to snap me so I want you right left and right left and snap now i want to try and turn but turn we go right left and right left now right left and right left now yes and then no I can't believe how many body twists we did today just body twist after body twist that's the movement that makes me feel more awkward because it's more sexual and It's supposed to be the most fluid and that's what I don't feel good about right now.
You are going to take your right hand. You are going to lower it. Good. Don't be afraid to touch yourself. It's your body. It's like my body. okay, step back on your left face like this and turn your body. There was a really cool moment in that class. ss where Kyle realized that I was like super scared and getting in my head, he was like, you know what? Let's play some music. I'll show you a game we all play with called. I think it's like blocks or something. I call that rhythms so basically we start with a rhythm and then we tell you how to modify it Haley would start dancing to the rhythm and then she would say okay now do it with your eyes closed and then she says now do it face up and turns every more ridiculous and you start to have fun and it's just about feeling the music and it has nothing to do with all the other things and a wink to everyone five six seven eight and wait well that made me feel so much better at the end of it, I was like oh I just have to have fun that's what today is going to be about, it's about seeing where she is and she has a ways to go.
I want you to find out what is sexy. it's for her like it's not the same definition for everyone so i just want nted to be confident because she's such a sweet girl it breaks my heart when people don't have the confidence to do what they want to do if she was going to do a routine performance at the end of 30 days for all my mates I was going to have to find a routine and we were going to have to start learning it fast so we went looking for all these songs and finally one day when it was just me and Kyle we found this jojo song from 2015 called high heels as soon as the drum hit he said this is the sexy song i thought i was going to do as a hip hop dance routine and then kyle drags his chair to the middle of the dance floor and it says you're going to do this song in heels and it's gonna be like Flashdance after first class.
Kyle said that he needed a little more basic work and one of the best things I can do for that is ballet, so I took a ballet class with Melissa Sandvik, who is a professional dancer who was in So You Think. You Can Dance and the ballet were very difficult, okay, so let's get started. with the basics the main thing in ballet is your posture you straighten your legs fully and stand as tall as possible and find the right alignment all the way down oh and the most flattering lines and shapes to your body there you go what was it it's.
The most I've
learnedthat we are men is all about making your body and lines beautiful and that was really hard for me because I was already thinking okay we go all the way sexy they are confident. way and now we were in a ballet class where it's all about grace and elegance and being beautiful and boy am I none of those things so i was just getting into the routine every day. I would go in and work with Kyle and Emma for an hour learning a part of the routine and I had to do things hundreds of times my knees in the first week were blue because I had to do floor work salat and every time I hit the floor my knees had to hit the floor super hard and i don't know how dancers do what they do to their body every day it hurts today like my shoulders hurt my knees are killing me that weird little kick we were doing really hurt the part behind the knee and then today we're supposed to do everything in heels so part of me is so excited because I'm having so much fun learning these things that I didn't think I could do and the other part of me is like I don't did. got some energy today first day walking in heels i was walking like a t-rex you're walking on bad knees and you hit yourself like that my life started to feel like a rocky mount which is really cool to see on video but it's a pain on the ass in real life and every day I would have liked a little triumph where I said yes I got this move and then Kyle would teach a new move and look at it like he can't do this.
I can't do this and then I would go back into my full mind game. I feel like I got worse and I think part of it is that now I'm just in my head about it and the moves aren't new anymore and the novelty has worn off and now I'm just worried about all these pictures and doing the right moves and it's starting to getting into my head, which is when it looks the worst and now I have to wear heels, which is not comfortable for me. idea who he was and for weeks everyone around me had been mentioning and almost blurting out who he was ok i got the awesome from my very good julianne hough i love his energy and i love his gifts and how i like bubbly he is , but she is one of the best dancers in the industry. girls kicking butt Heard I feel like I'm on Dancing with the Stars.
Damn let's see what you got alright you can see I done here we go I did my worst. I have acted in my life for her. I completely lost all intention. completely freaked out and i was just trying not to mess up the moves and it was so bad you obviously have this part down yeah and then from here down yeah there's something missing here yeah the boobs so i feel like you're doing you're just lifting your leg and you're walking but i want you to feel my back for a second uh she made me touch her back and feel exactly how much of the dance moves your whole body and your back so that your core is leading you really did a big difference yeah yeah yeah you saw your whole body moving it wasn't just your limbs moving one thing Julianne kept saying and Kyle was I needed to be in this character and feel comfortable feeling my body so one thing I did was go home , play music and just dance so I thought I'd come home tonight I just danced a little for fun too my favorite songs and just did some body twists just get moving. all the things that make me feel uncomfortable and i just really dig in and move my shoulders and just try to feel sexier which is kind of weird to say because it's something i never thought about or tried to do on purpose and then it happened this magical moment where i started to feel really happy and i stopped caring why or how and there was no routine and then i would look in the mirror and think i looked good i look sexy this is crazy i think it was a point of turning point for me emotionally dancing by myself with no other person no routine and it feels sexy so we just broke up with ashley she's doing good like I'm really impressed they think she's growing and I think she's trying hard like now , when there's something she can't do, she's like no, let's just drop it and I'll figure it out which one is she correcting herself right?
She still has a little bit of discomfort, but I think that's what makes her great. Then a week passed and I got sick. This is the weekend. for the performance I had I was supposed to meet with MN Kyle this morning to do a performance, but I'm... my body is kind of exhausted, so I'm going to spend the day going through old footage and trying to figure out what I did wrong and what can I do better and I hope to be better this week. I'm so impressed I want to cry because she's doing so well since that first rehearsal, oh my gosh, when she couldn't kick the changeup, she couldn't walk, she had no heels. alone she walks with them and now she is doing a complete dance routine in heels and she looks amazing like she is as happy as i am so happy what i love most about watching her do is just the movement in general she uses her whole body now you can tell that she's enjoying it because she used to get so frustrated with everything and now she's really comfortable with herself like those head whippings she does and she's kind of smiling and it makes me so happy I've been working with Ashley now for this whole month today we took a video at beginning of the rehearsal and she saw herself on the video and she saw herself doing the movements on the floor and walking with her hands and her hair like she looked so confident on camera and it was almost like she didn't think she was her and she didn't think she could do that at the beginning of this process so today is my first day dancing with Ashley and if they hadn't told me that she was going through her process and this transformation I never would have known what I really Before it looks like she's taken a couple of healing classes and she's kicking but you showed a I woke up this morning like an hour and a half before my alarm so I was panicking.
I'm wearing a full body suit, my entire back is exposed. proud of myself im so excited i cant believe im committing to this i think just seeing me in heels will be shocking tomost of the office once i start liking floor work i think people won't know what to do with themselves i want kyle to like to be crying g a little bit that's really like who i feel like has seen all this i just wanna feel so rude when the song ends and the light signal goes off i wanna be like i killed that and left it all on the ground oh making noise i like it when it gets loud i think it's time the lights dimmed the smoke came on and the first beat hit, can i?
I just took these pictures of these on me again. I know I was wrong but I didn't feel like it because it was I like it was sheer will and my body was no joke and I had fun and I had a great time and the best thing about this whole experience is that the version of me that was sexy in the end was me the whole time it was just me being sure who i am my favorite part is when he hit the floor with his couch sorry i couldn't think of a nicer way to say that was great he really rocked me to my couch like this I think we all have a kind of universal doubt about the sofa, I don't know if that's the right word to do, let's go to the sofa, the sofa is fine.
