dancing platform

I think school dances should be more like they were in the 70's

I mean, just think about it

  • super fun disco music
  • boys in tight fitting clothes
  • bell bottom pants
  • platform shoes
  • A girl get pigs blood poured on her then proceeds to burn down the school murdering everyone inside
  • long flowy hair 
  • no bras

idk about you, but i think that sounds like a blast

It’s You That I Hold Onto

It’s a typical Saturday evening in the Goldstein residence (plus a few), Queenie and Jacob waltzing to sleepy crackling records, dappled golden mid-winter light on the wallpaper, the smell of something delicious wafting from the kitchen. 

Everything seems perfect to Y/N as she makes her way to the living room, her brilliant crimson skirt swishing rather gracefully about her waist, her hair (for once!) cooperating falling over her shoulders smoothly.

Queenie smiles at her, elegantly breaking away from Jacob to switch which record is playing, new music erupting from the golden phonograph.

“Would ya’ care to dance?” Jacob asks, giving her a rather sloppy grin and holding out his hand.

Y/N nods gleefully, enjoying the time with one of her best friends as the stout man spins her about the room, Queenie clapping to the music.

Newt’s eyes flick to the duo dancing gleefully through the living room, his gaze caught on the pretty woman in his arms. How that skirt shows off her hips-

He looks away immediately, blushing and mentally kicking himself for being “an absolute bloody creep.”

I’m sick of straight people at drag bars or gay bars. one time I went to roscoes & i was dancing on a platform and the two people who tried to shove me off were a heterosexual bachelorette in a tiara and an EXTREMELY drunk bitch with too much hair who was just SCREAMING lmao. I finally got her off of my fucking friend by pushing her towards the dude she came in with. she stuck her tongue down his throat like they were fucking puzzle pieces and i still hope for her death at night

All the boys

Dan is forced to go to the strip club for a birthday and he unexpectedly has eyes for one of the girls working there 

Warning: smutttt

inspired by this 

Dan’s POV:

“Dan come on it’s gonna be fun” Phil told me through my bedroom door which I had locked for the purpose of Phil not being able to drag me there. “Since when did you find stuff like this fun Phil” I retorted
“Dan you know I don’t but its just manners we show up” 
“Phil we’re gonna be surrounded by thirty year old horny men being pervs” I groaned 
“Dan just get ready you don’t have to talk just stay on your phone” 
“ugh fine but you owe me” I compromised getting up from my bed. 

I lazily chucked on some black skinny jeans and a black button up, not caring if I looked like shit, I didn’t want to be there and they probably knew it too. 
It was Joe’s birthday and Caspar had decided to take Joe to a strip club to celebrate. A fucking strip club. And they decided that it would be a good idea to invite Phil and I. If you’ve talked to us for more than five minutes, you’d know we’re not strip club people, heck if you’ve even looked at us.

This. INFURIATES. ME. Like are you kidding me not only 1) were they asked to dance SEXILY on a platform outside in the cold, they 2) were tricked into getting weighed publicly they 3) got ranked on who was closest to their actual weights on a profile that was made probably when they were debuted and over trained. How traumatizing is that, how horrific is that. Imagine that like it’s hard enough being a girl in Korea and in Kpop and this is something that has really got under my skin… these poor girls. Like imagine getting up their dancing “sexy” which is uncomfortable in itself but then realizing you were getting weighed?! I hope this show gets shut down or some serious consequences and I hope that Kpop fandoms don’t let this slide…. like let’s stand up for these poor girls.

I BELIEVE IT WAS AIRED ON A PILOT EPISODE FOR A PROGRAM CALLED BON BON OLYMPICS RUN BY KBS ENTERTAINMENT

7 Behind-The-Scenes Secrets About the New Beauty and the Beast Ballroom Scene
Courtesy of choreographer Anthony Van Laast.

For the new live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, Disney turned to legendary choreographer Anthony Van Laast, whose resume includes everything Mamma Mia (stage and film) to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. To get Emma Watson and Dan Stevens ready for their iconic ballroom scene as Belle and Beast, Van Laast had them learn the basics of waltz. To his surprise, Van Laast also had to choreograph the movements for “Be Our Guest,” even though it was mostly CGI. The process, which included inspiration from real-life dancers, a storyboard artist, and motion capture, took about six months. “I’ve seen so many animated films [with people dancing] and never really thought about it, but of course they must have used a choreographer and I thought, Christ, I’m the choreographer of this iconic piece in Beauty and the Beast,” Van Laast said in a recent phone call from England. “This was the one thing that caused me more sleepless nights than anything… I think when you see the film, you’ll understand the complexity of the number. There are knives in the air, there’s food coming and going.”

Here, Van Laast reveals the intricacies of putting together a ballroom scene, especially when someone’s toes are on the line.

1. Dan had to practice dancing in platform shoes. “For the big ballroom scene, it was absolutely him, [but] they had to have the height difference for when they danced. She had to be a lot smaller than him. He had to wear platform shoes that were quite difficult to dance in. First he learned how to waltz, then he had to learn the routine, then he had to learn how to do the routine in platform shoes, then he had to dance with Emma in those platform shoes.”

2. Emma rehearsed with 1 lb weights on each of her wrists to help her with her posture for the waltz. “[This was] so she would hold her arms in a certain way. She got used through rehearsal to moving with a big skirt, and she never complained about it.”

3. Dan could have broken Emma’s toes making the movie. “It was a matter of posture and how you hold your back. The big thing for Dan was, because he had these great big clodhoppers on his feet, not to tread on Emma’s feet… I know that as far as she was concerned, she was always a little fearsome of her feet trodden on, and he was a little fearsome of treading on her feet. It was a very complicated routine.”

4. Dan had extra training because of the awkward Beast postures. Every morning at 6:30 a.m., “someone would come and do exercises and yoga with him, just to keep his body free.” Emma, on the other hand, was already “really fit” because she already does yoga. “She’s a very good mover.”

5. Technicians and camera crew clapped and congratulated Emma and Dan when scene wrapped. “[This also happened] at the read through, which was in front of hundreds of people. Emma just jumped up. Everyone was thrilled.”

6. The lift is all about Emma. “It’s all about how the woman holds her body that enables the man to lift her. It was about working with Emma, teaching her how to hold herself so she was ‘liftable.’ The hardest thing is being put down and moving in the right direction after being put down.”

7. A Pharrell classic was the source of celebration during filming. “When we finished shooting the last dance [scene] in the film, someone put on ‘Happy’ and the cast and all the crew had a party.”

things about the great comet

i had such good seats i was #blessed i was right in front of one of the platforms where they dance and do shit on. i cry.

  • Marya D stood in front of me and told the people in my row to turn of their cells phones and keep their legs out of the way
  • they interact with the audience A LOT
  • the lighting is absolutely gorgeous they had old fashioned light bulbs lower from the ceiling and they looked like stars
  • the intense strobe lights when they’re at the club.. also the ensamble comes out with hardly any clothes on and glow stick braclets and that stuff, and it’s such a great contrast from the period clothing everyone else is wearing.
  • the way prince bolkonsky draws out every. single. word during private and intimate life of the house
  • andrey standing in the snow during no one else
  • The way the spotlights shine on each character as they’re introduced in the prologue
  • Marya D in general
  • during Letters dolokhov tells a row in the audience to pass down the love letter and the last guy in the row stood up and handed it to natasha. the dolokhov taps the first guy in the row on the shoulder and gives him a fist bump 
  • also during letters one of the cast members came over gave the woman sitting next to me a small letter
  •  the way pierre picks up the pistol during dust and ashes and looks at it when he says if i die here tonight, then i die in my sleep
  • during balaga ensemble members gave out these shakers for the audience to shake during the song
  • Balaga in general is just a really fun part just because of all the energy in the room
  • the song charming, it was just amazing all that strength amber gray has in her voice
  • at the end of a few high energy song the cast members dancing on platforms would suddenly just collapse and rest their arms around audience members
  • denee benton danced on the platform right in front of me. that is all.
  • when prince bolkonsky finds a “cheap french thing” in the audience
  • during natasha and the bolkonskys natasha and princess mary grab stools and carry them over to peoples tables and sorta stare at each other
  • the great comet at the end lights up so brightly and then fades slowly as the last song ends
  • i literally cannot recommend it highly enough

Acting. Why in the world did you have to be good at acting? It wasn’t that you necessarily hated it per say. It was more about how you always had a hard time warming up to cast and crew members. You were very shy and quiet; very kept to yourself and very comfortable in your little bubble.

This most recent show you’d gotten a guest role on though, Supernatural, was one of the hardest shows you’d worked on. The cast was very friendly. They liked to goof around and have fun. But no matter how hard they tried to include you, you just couldn’t warm up. When the cameras weren’t rolling, you prefered to stay in the guest trailer.

The GazettE Cheering You Up After A Bad Day

I’m having a tough week so I really need this.

Ruki: Spoils you by buying you new jewelry/clothes, in the evening, Ruki would put on your favorite music and the two of you would be playing with Koron at his place ‘till you go to bed.

Uruha: Takes you for a walk in the park and stops by a cafe for some cheesecake, he isn’t very good at giving advices but he still calmly listens to your problems, letting you vent on him.

Aoi: Cuddles with you under fluffy blankets and hot beverages, which lead to sex (he would make sure you are fully satisfied) and more cuddling afterwards.

Reita: Thinks the best way to forget about stress is by going to the Arcades. You’ll be playing all sort of games together - car race games, mini hockey, dancing platform games. Reita would win a plushie toy from the Claw Crane for you. ( those machines you grab toys with a hook )

Kai: Leaves work earlier so the two of you could have dinner at a fancy restaurant, he listens to all your problems and tries to help you out how to get through tough times. After dinner, you go to his place and take a nice, hot bath together.
