201802 Don’t worry about your Worry. 悩む事を決して恐れない

My Favorite February!! (My birthday Feb 1st!) 日本語は下へ As you may know, I had been in Japan from Halloween, and performances 10 cities, 34 events. Thanks a bunch, guys! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Who do you admire? I want to say I am my hero. This is big chance when in a dilemma. All dilemmas have at their base two, perhaps three, separate solutions, that seem to contradict each other. We always have to decide one answer, sometimes a combination of the two or three available, sometimes one entirely new altogether that one can’t see, that’s perfect for the issue. But the best solution is always there. Do something you like. The felt sense of dilemma is the natural feeling of having to choose between two (or more) terrible choices right now. Like fear (as opposed to anxiety), it is designed for a two-minute situation, like… Read More »201802 Don’t worry about your Worry. 悩む事を決して恐れない

これから日本を発ちます!My airplane is going to leave to New York!!

これから日本を発ちます! My airplane is going to leave in 1 hour to New York. I went 10 cities and 34 performances from Halloween in Japan. Now is time to another world. I’m home Japan, and Welcome back New York. I’m full of gratitude. ハロウィンから日本に帰ってきて、約2ヶ月半。 今回は 10都道府県 34ステージ 新潟、東京、大阪、愛知、佐賀、岐阜、北海道、京都、静岡、沖縄 にてパフォーマンスや講話を行わせて頂きました。 約2日に一回のペースで人前に立ち、踊ったり話したりしていた事になります。 当然ながら、その公演に向けて、電話での打ち合わせ、リハーサルや練習、音を作ったりと全て並行しながらなので、自分の中ではずっと何かをしている感覚でしたが、これが当たり前で、一つのライフワークだったので、とても充実した時間を過ごす事ができたと思ってます。 また今回の旅では、小さい点だったものが線になり、細い線だったものが太い線になったり、本当に色々な人にお世話になりながら進めていく事が多かったと感じます。自分一人でできる事はたかが知れまくってますが、人と繋がり、協力し合う事でそれがまた新しいムーブメントになる。でもそれは一人でできる力がお互いにあってこそ成り立つものであり、基本的には依存してはいけないし、するつもりもない。だけどここぞという時だけ集約したそのパワーは計り知れないものになる。そうである自分でいられる為に、そう思ってもらえる自分であるために、またNYに戻っても精進していきます。 2013年から毎年日本に戻ってきて、このように活動させて頂く中で、日本にいる海外に興味がある人もそうですが、逆に海外にいて日本で活動したい人、という人にも今後は色々コミュニケーションを取りながら、お互いのフィールドを更に広げる事ができたら、と思います。自分自身も試行錯誤ではありますが、このようにNYでの仕事をお休みさせてもらい、長期的に帰っていく人は多くはないと思うので、その中で感じた事もたくさんあるので。 今同時進行で、次回の日本へ帰国する為のイベントを企画しています!ですので、またその時期が合えば、今回出会った方、これから出会う方、自分の活動に少しでも共感して頂ける方など、ご紹介して頂けたら嬉しく思います! というような内容、また今後の活動であまり公にできないような情報なども、毎月ニュースレターとしてまとめてお届けしてますw 1分でも皆さまにポジティブな気持ちになってもらえるように心がけております。是非ご興味のある方は、もしこちらまで登録してくれると嬉しいですー! 必ず夢を叶えます! なぜなら、叶えられない理由がないから!! http://toshihikonakazawa.us13.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=43382a46b8916b882e62c66ca&id=3689313213

Every Ordinary Day Is Truly An Extraordinary Day 201709

Do you remember the 21st night of September?! Here is September!!   Last month, I want some meet up and absorb new ideas.  Also collaborated with other performers, not only dancers. That was great experience and I realized again the possibility of Entertainment. I try to keep cultivate sensitivity and make efforts everyday to develop my techniques. Make Ordinary to Unordinary    People say “thank you for ordinary days” It’s true, but how?   It’s too late if we realize how important something was after we lose it. But it’s hard to realize before we lose it.   I always say if I want to get something, think about from opposite site. As for now if we want to know Ordinary, let’s see what is Unordinary for us? If you don’t know what it is, we can’t find out Ordinary for you. But when you can discover that, you may thank you… Read More »Every Ordinary Day Is Truly An Extraordinary Day 201709

Even if you can't dream it you can do it

Even if you can’t dream it you can do it   Here is August!! Last year August, I was in my hometown, Japan and I went to beach almost every day. Just 5min from my home so if you have chance to come to Japan, you must come to my hometown!!! Great food, sea, and people.   If you give up it doesn’t mean you never wanted it    Recently, I spend my time with regular work and maintenance my body, also I need I do some soul-searching and figure out what is the next step for my career. Here is one motivation for me   “if I don’t give up I’ll make it”   It’s stronger over time. This is true, but this is wrong. Dreams don’t always come true. Because   The Dream may change.   I still can’t believe I live in NYC as a dancer just right now.… Read More »Even if you can't dream it you can do it

Here comes July!!   I had a great time in June as always, I met new people, dancing everyday, and still alive.   Last month, I took audition that required some instrument skills. I never played drum even tap is just few times. But when I found this audition info,  some idea crossed my mind.   “I can do this”   There was still 3 weeks until the audition, so I started exposing the problem what I need to do.   What I can do is limited in 3 weeks, however at the time, I want to say if the audition go through or not “There’s nothing more I can do“   So I asked who can play drum and percussion, and went workshop, training everyday for the audition.   “I can do it”   This is magic word. Every time start from this. Any result beyond my control compete others, especially like… Read More »im possible
