My name on SL is Elayn (Resident). Please just call me Elayn. I have been a Performance Dance Choreographer and creator. Currently, I’m on a haitus from dance and enjoying learning about some other Second Life past-times. What am I up to now? You just never know!!!
I do use Alts (alternate accounts) and if you know who I am on those accounts, feel free to say “HI” but I don’t advertise the names openly.
I enjoy teaching others the many things I learn on SL, so that they can exercise their creativity in their own style! Some of the topics I offer tutorials on include:
*Inventory and Wardrobe Organization
*Customizing Avatars using mesh bodies and heads.
*Lag Management and Prevention
*Basic Building Skills
*Basic Texturing Skills
*Creating and Modifying Particle Scripts and Emitters
*Staging and Presentation
*The Spot On Animation and Choreography Tools
What is “performance dance” you might ask? It’s an art form that includes creating elaborate stage sets, special effects including particles, and meticulously synchronized animations and paths that give the appearance of the avatar dancing to the music that is playing. When done well, belief is suspended allowing you to forget that at the end of the day, we are making cartoons wiggle. 🙂
I perform with some amazing dance troupes around the grid including The Monarchs, The Luxe Girls of Elysion, and The Nouvelles Folies as well as guest appearances with other shows now and then.
My Vlog Series is called The Studio and offers Tutorials, Dance Reviews and Product Reviews and hopefully in the future some interviews with other Choreographers. It’s amazing how shy some of the most outrageous personalities can be! So join me at The Studio and enjoy the world of Second Life Dance with me!
