How A Song Can Inspire A Dance Masterpiece

While competing at the 30th Anniversary of the Emerald Ball Dancesport Championships, Felipe Telona, Jr sat down with Jose & Aimee of Dance Teachers Academy. Felipe speaks honestly about the challenges of partnership dancing and how to avoid “The Captain Kirk Effect” on the dance floor. They also discuss filming instructional videos for Dance Vision where he and Carolina discuss creating energy.

When asked what’s his favorite dance, he doesn’t have a response because music is what inspires him. While watching the musical act on an episode of Saturday Night Live, Felipe heard a powerful song called “Goodbye My Lover” by James Blunt. It was this song that inspired him to create an artistic and moving dance number with Carolina Orlovsky. It begins with him getting shot to death and his spirit returning. floor 


“When you have that song that you play and all the sudden you just feel it, you become one with…Boom! That’s it. Magic time. “
