About

My name is Ijeme Bare…

To all of us…the adult dancers who are trying to figure out what the hell we’re doing..

To the ones that know what to do but have to teach our bodies to know as well….

To the ones who just love to dance but your bodies have not come to agree with it…

I started seriously dancing at 19 which is very late and almost impossible to build a career from. With no dance teacher or school nearby, I took on the responsibility of teaching myself and hoping I was doing the right thing. I spent every day trying and trying, not knowing whether I was getting it right or wrong because I had no one to correct me. I’m not saying I know it all, in fact, I know very little but my short journey has taught me so much. The mistakes I’ve made has propelled me further than I could have ever imagined…

My ultimate goal is to be able to speak through dance, not just tell stories. When they watch me dance, they should feel my thoughts and emotions. I want to create a feeling in them that cannot be put into words, because WORDS ARE OVERRATED.

I’m hoping that in a very odd way, this blog serves as an inspiration to anyone who reads it… Not just to dancers who started late but to anyone who feels like it’s too late to start…
