Talented dancer And Fitness Instructor Kaffy is the cover personality for La Mode Magazine‘s latest edition with the theme– Beyond dance.
Freedom of expression. Whenever I hear music, sound, I just feel like I need to soak myself into the rhythm of the sound, interpretation of the lyrics, or into the general idea. I am inspired to dance sometimes just by situations around me, whether it is good or bad, painful or not. I think dance for me is like breathing, it’s like me waking up being me. I use it to communicate and express myself unto various feelings of life. For me, it is a way of life and it is hard to say this why I dance. I dance because I want to dance.
WHAT SHOULD THE VIEWER TAKE AWAY? INTERPRETATION OR A MESSAGE YOU WISH TO CONVEY.
Kaffy: I think right now I am really a bit bored with what is going on with dance in terms of social media like they just want to dance to music; create a new dance move or style. I think right now I want to do something more meaningful. I am so into a lot of youth and teens empowerment, entrepreneurship and mentorship programmes for dancers this year. So if I am going into all these things this year then it goes in line with creating dance videos to tell a story to inspire a young girl going through hardship or to inspire a young boy who does not understand what to do with his life at the moment. You know something just to help express all the things we go through as young people and are not able to talk about them. As artists can sing about them, I want to dance about them.
WHO CAN DANCE?
Kaffy: Everybody can dance but not everybody that can dance is a dancer. The terminology dancer is professional and is basically meant for the profession-minded people and as much as all of us that can dance, not all of us are dancers. There are some people that are dancers like they’re good but don’t want to pursue dance. So, I really think it’s really about how far you want to go in the art and how well you actually display the art of dance. For emphasis, not everybody is a dancer but anybody can dance.
