For those who don't recognize who Yanis Marshall is, check out this video or this one. Still don't know? Alright, well he's a dancer born in 89 in France and specializes in sexy street jazz heels choreography. He's currently on tour which explains his visit to Vancouver, however you would usually find him in New York or Los Angeles.
At Harbour Dance in Vancouver, there are three options. Level 1,2,3 of dance... Yanis' choreography is like a level 7, at least for me. Don't get me wrong I can dance, I just can't pick up choreography fast which sucks and especially learning from the back of the class with the view of nothing, good luck keeping up. For me, it was a neat experience to be inspirited by other dancers and have fun which was quite difficult being extremely sick! Who knew 4 hours of dance was quite similar to dying!
There were 45 minutes left in the class and I remember whispering to my girl Anushka "should we bail and go for yam fries?". It was a tempting option to go however, we decided to stay. I will admit I did somewhat give up during the last hour of learning the Heels choreography cause my body was giving up on me. I ended up video cording all my lovelies dancing.
As an end result it was amazing to see him live going at it. I will never be able to move in ways he does and I will be looking forward to taking his class again. Praise Yanis.
