On Friday August 4th, 2017 at approximately 7:25pm. M. Nicholson Hip Hop Fitness ventured to do something that no one else in the dance fitness world thus far has ventured to do. I love experimenting and taking risks. That's how you proceed to do that are innovative. That's truly where my happy place is when it comes to be an entrepreneur.
On the prior mentioned date we decided to experiment with not just a DJ and Full Band. We decided to throw in a Marching Band in the mix. East High School of Columbus, Ohio Marching Band. This experiment could not have turned out any better than what it did. Did we run into a few snags? Yes we most certainly did. That's what happens when you seek to do something that others dare not to do. You will make mistakes time and time again. You will constantly bump your head against the wall of failure. You will repeatedly fiddle with the things that don't work until you come across the things that do work. That's when you achieve that satisfaction. That elation of becoming innovative.
Running into the snafus was part of the fun. It is quite fun for us that are truly innovative. Reason being this provides for us a challenge to overcome. The innovative love challenges. Once you have figured it out you become to ascend to a plain of overwhelming joy like no other. We had to figure the logistics of how to get the band there? How to get musicians there? Where were they to be placed in relation to one another? How was the sound going to throughout the structure? We pretty much figured out everything on the fly. Making adjustments every step of the way. When it was all said and done. I must say we were pleased with the final product.
The merging of musicianship was just totally awesome. Each respective band did their thing. The merging of the different sounds that protruded throughout the Showplace Pavilion was just awesome.
It was such an immersive experience and everyone was putting in 100%. – Lindsay Goodman Find where you Fit
The energy was just utterly amazing. The clashing of various sounds created an coercive environment for all that were in attendance to move even if they did not want to.
