High-Cut Leotards, Aerobics and Zoom Rehearsals: Choreographer Jennifer Hamilton on Apple TV+s Physical – Dance Magazine

Posted: July 14, 2021 at 1:50 am


without comments

Apple TV+'s dark new comedy "Physical" delivers on exactly what the title suggests: campy 1980s aerobics la Olivia Newton-John, complete with legwarmers, highly puffed-up hairstyles and even higher-cut leotards. The show follows Sheila, played by Rose Byrne, a downtrodden wife and mother who finds a passion for teaching aerobics. The woman behind Byrne's hip rolls and grapevines? Choreographer Jennifer Hamilton, who drew on memories of her mom's Jazzercise tapes to channel those iconic '80s moves.

When my agent brought it to my attention, I thought it was awesome because it's based in the 1980s, it's all about aerobics, and Rose Byrne was starring. But it's also a dramedy, and as I was reading the scripts by Annie Weisman, the show's creator, I realized it had so much substance. So much of the show is about female empowerment and women's struggles with our inner voice, with our self-confidence and self-doubt.

I grew up in the '80s, and I remember my mom doing Jazzercise in our living room, so it was fun to go back and really research it. I looked at Kathy Smith and Judi Sheppard Missett. I kind of stayed away from Jane Fonda, just because she's the ultimate. I didn't want it to become clichd or be identical to something else.

I also watched a lot of 1980s music videos, just to get myself back in the time period of movement. On set, we'd be filming to Eurythmics, A Flock of Seagulls, Aretha Franklinthat music really transports you to that time.

What's so cool about this project is that the aerobics are part of the whole journey. Sheila is a very unhappy housewife at the time when we meet her. She's damaged and flawed and has some inner struggles with body image and her self-confidence, so her movement starts out cautious and not so in-your-face. It starts light and delicate, but she doesn't end the season that way.

Then Bunny, who's played by Della Saba, has such a fiery attitude. She's this tiny little person who's like a firecracker. Her movement needed to have a lot of spunk and a lot of accents and hits.

When you're teaching a nondancer, whether it's dance steps or aerobics, you really have to pay attention to that individual and tailor things to them. I couldn't just spit out a bunch of moves and expect the actresses to pick it up.

We didn't really have the luxury of time. If there was something that didn't look good, I'd be like, "You know what? Let's do something else."

But the great thing was Rose and Della cared so much about these characters and about this project. They're such great actresses and they picked up the movement very well.

I can't say enough amazing things about Rose Byrne. She brought her A game to rehearsal and set every single time. Due to COVID-19, we held all of our rehearsals over Zoom, so I had never met her in person prior to our first day on set. Sometimes she would be like, "Yeah, maybe when I see you in person, we can work on that move." Then we'd get to the set, and we'd have a little rehearsal time on site, so she'd be able to see me and understand the movement.

I'd always look forward to what the next leotard was going to be. The costume designer, Kameron Lennox, really killed it with all these leotards. We'd joke, "Is this one going to be higher cut than yesterday?" The leotards were definitely a character of their own.

Did an Aerobics Video Show Parts of Myanmar Coup? – Snopes.com

Posted: February 9, 2021 at 6:55 am


without comments

In the aftermath of a military coup in Myanmar in February 2021, news reports and social media posts claimed to show an extraordinary piece of footage a woman conducting her regular aerobics class outdoors in the capital city of Naypyidaw, while in the background a convoy of military and police vehicles advance up the road towards the countrys parliament.

On Feb. 1, Aditya Raj Kaul posted the clip, along with the following description:

A woman did her regular aerobics class out in open without realizing that a coup was taking place in #Myanmar. A Military convoy reaching the parliament can be seen behind the woman as she performs aerobics. Incredible!

That particular clip was originally posted to Twitter by ngel Marrades, whose Spanish-language description also garnered thousands of shares.

On the morning of Feb. 1 (the evening of Jan. 31 in the United States), generals supportive of the political opposition deposed and detained controversial leader Aung San Suu Kyi, along with several of her allies, and installed a military regime they said would last for one year.

So the video footage, which was first posted to Facebook on Feb. 1, appeared to show vehicles heading towards the parliament and therefore the early moments of the coup.

Thats how it was reported by several news outlets including The Guardian, Los Angeles Times, and the New York Post, among others.

Those descriptions contained a degree of accuracy. The video is authentic, and there is no compelling reason to think the footage does not show what it seems to show the early moments of a military coup inadvertently recorded. However, evidence is lacking in relation to certain key factual considerations, such as when the video was recorded and what exactly the convoy was doing when driving towards the parliament. Taking those factors into account, we are issuing a rating of Mixture.

The video is real. The woman shown in it, a physical education teacher named Khing Hnin Wai, posted it to her Facebook account at 3 p.m. local time on Feb. 1 (3:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time). It can be viewed in full here.

Her exact location is the Royal Lotus Roundabout, around 1.9 miles (3 kilometers) east of the buildings that house the Assembly of the Union, Myanmars national legislature, in the capital city of Naypyidaw.

The location can be found on Google Maps here. The following street view photographs, taken in August 2018, approximately replicate the angle from which the video in question was shot and the reverse angle, which shows the portion of the roundabout on which Khing Hnin Wai stood and danced:

At first glance, the video may have appeared to have been created using a green screen backdrop because of the way in which Khing Hnin Wais shadow cuts off abruptly, as shown below:

However, that apparent visual anomaly makes sense once the viewer understands that she was standing on a raised platform with several sets of steps behind her, leading down to the road itself.

Over the past several months, Khing Hnin Wai has posted multiple videos of herself dancing and exercising in the exact same location, further underscoring the authenticity of the footage posted on Feb. 1:

In November 2020, she posted an exercise video, this time recorded from the reverse angle, meaning it showed the distinctive lotus sculpture at the center of the Royal Lotus Roundabout, further demonstrating that this was the habitual location for her aerobics videos.

Khing Hnin Wai posted the video to Facebook on the day of the coup and wrote about it in a way that clearly indicates it was also recorded that day. According to a translation by Agence France Presse, she wrote on Facebook: Before I heard the news (of the coup) in the morning, the video I made for the aerobic dance competition has become an unforgettable memory.

Though there is no compelling reason to suggest otherwise, we have not yet been able to verify that the footage was recorded on Feb. 1. If it was, then its likely the activities shown in the background were indeed related in some way to the coup, which the U.K.s Channel 4 News reported began with pre-dawn raids.

However, on Facebook, Khing Hnin Wai herself noted that it isnt unusual for an official convoy to appear in Naypyidaw, which is the site of virtually all national governmental, military, and diplomatic headquarters of note in the country.

As a result, we cannot rule out the possibility that the footage although authentic was recorded before Feb. 1, and therefore showed activities that were not related to that days military coup.

Meme mashup of Myanmar woman doing aerobics with vibing cat, Sanders and Trump is breaking the internet – The Indian Express

Posted: at 6:55 am


without comments

The video of a woman doing her aerobics routine unperturbed by the Myanmar military coup that was taking place in the background went viral this week. The video clip got everyone talking online, with some dubbing it as an example of a dystopian world.

Now, taking it to a whole new level, Twitter user Jorge Gomes (@jmgvostpt) from Portugal morphed the vibing cat meme on it, alongside Turkish street performer Bilal Gregen.

As if that wasnt enough, a dancing Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders mitten picture the 2021s biggest meme theme was also added.

As the mashup video created quite a buzz, Gomes shared a rough cut of his file to let other add more memes and characters if they wanted. Now, from Coffin Dance meme to Salt Bae, there are plenty of rendition of the meme leaving all in splits.

While the videos started a laughter riot online, a few users noted that this phenomenon will be hard for historians to explain.

Earlier this week, a physical education teacher from Naypyidaw, Myanmars official capital gained instant fame on the internet as she continued her elaborate fitness routine on camera outside the parliament building arena, oblivious to the events happening behind her.

The woman was identified as Khing Hnin Wai, a 26-year-old aerobics instructor, who claimed she has been exercising in the same location for the past couple of months.

Myanmar coup: Aerobics instructor ‘not aware’ of military takeover behind her in viral video – Sky News

Posted: at 6:55 am


without comments

A woman whose workout video went viral after it accidentally captured Myanmar's military carrying out a coup says she was totally unaware what was going on behind her.

On Monday, civilian leaders Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Myint were detained along with hundreds of MPs as top generals overthrew the country's elected government.

Khing Hnin Wai, 26, was carrying out a colour morning routine in front of the road to parliament, oblivious to the serious political situation unfolding in the background.

In the video, a stream of military vehicles can be seen driving towards a tightened security checkpoint as the aerobics instructor dances and punches the air in a neon yellow and black outfit.

When the bizarre footage first emerged, many viewers questioned if it was real.

The PE teacher was totally focused on her routine and unable to get updates from the outside world due to a mobile signal blackout in the capital Naypyidaw, which lasted for nearly eight hours.

"I didn't know. I had no mobile signal and was not aware of what was happening behind me," Khing said.

An exercise enthusiast, she said she usually carries out her morning routine at the same location from 7am to 8:30am in order to compete in an aerobics competition organised by the education ministry.

The video she was filming was her entry, which she uploaded to social media.

"I teach an aerobics class to my school children, and I am also joining the competition," Khing explained.

"During the pandemic, we can't go to an in-person class, so I am teaching them via online videos."

She wrote on her Facebook page (prior to the military government blocking access to the platform) that she knew those members of the security forces personally as she always exercises there.

"They even greeted me after the exercise on that day," she said.

Despite the popularity of the clip, Khing said she was worried people may wrongly believe that she was celebrating.

"That's why I wrote, please don't copy the video," she said.

On Wednesday, police filed charges against de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who they claim illegally imported several walkie talkies.

If found guilty, she could face a maximum sentence of three years in prison.

She and President Win Myint, who faces charges relating to breaking COVID-19 rules, are currently due to be detained until 15 February.

Aerobics instructor catches Myanmar coup kicking off in workout video – We Are The Mighty

Posted: at 6:55 am

MIGHTY TRENDING

Sandboxx

An aerobics instructor filming her exercise routine accidentally caught the beginning of a military coup in Myanmar earlier this week. The video shows a convoy of black military vehicles headed for the parliament complex in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmars capital city, as she goes about her workout.

The footage shows fitness instructor Khing Hnin Wai working through an aerobic routine as more than a dozen blacked-out SUVs and armored vehicles approach a roadblock behind her. Those vehicles reportedly carried troops who went on to capture Aung San Suu Kyi, the democratically elected State Counsellor of Myanmar, as well as other members of the nations elected government.

In an ironic twist, the music playing in the background of Khings video includes lyrics that translate to,They are coming, one by one, to fight over the throne.

Initially, many online assumed this video was a fake, since the framing of the dance and the convoys appearance behind Khing seems more like an SNL skit than the serious military coup thats taking place. Khing has continued to post on social media about the video, and was contacted byThe BBCin order to confirm the validity of her video.

I wasnt dancing to mock or ridicule any organization or to be silly. I was dancing for a fitness dance competition, wrote Khing on her Facebook. As it isnt uncommon for Nay Pyi Taw to have an official convoy, I thought it was normal so I continued.

The military of Myanmar hastaken overthe country and declared a year-long state of emergency following an election that saw Suu Kyi win in a landslide. The military is demanding a repeat of the election, citing unconfirmed reports of widespread voter fraud.

Suu Kyi first garnered international attention in the 1980s as she campaigned for her nation to restore democratic rule. After organizing protests and rallies that called for free democratic elections, she was captured and held in detention from 1989 until her release in 2010. Suu Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, which she accepted while serving a portion of her sentence under house arrest.

In 2015, Suu Kyi helped her National League for Democracy party secure victory in the nations first open elections in a quarter-century, propelling the former captive into the role of State Counsellor, a role similar to that of Prime Minister in other nations. Not all of Suu Kyis media exposure has been positive, however, as many cite Myanmars policy of treating the nations Rohingya minority group as illegal immigrants when criticizing Suu Kyi. Allegations of a military-led genocide of the Rohingya people forced Suu Kyi to answer for her nations actions at the International Court of Justice in 2019, though she denied any wrongdoing.

While there are no hard figures on how many Rohingya people have been killed, an estimated 700,000 have fled Myanmar to Bangladesh since the military crackdown began in 2017.

Now, according to Myanmars military, control of the nation has been handed over to Min Aung Hlaing, who serves as the commander and chief for the nations forces. The European Union, UK, and United Nations have all already condemned the military takeover of Myanmar, and President Joe Biden has already threatened to restore previously ended sanctions on the nation.

Protests have reportedly erupted around the nation, with many citizens honking their car horns or taking to the street to bang on pots and pans to voice their displeasure with the military take-over.

The curse of the coup is rooted in our country, and this is the reason why our country still remains poor. I feel sad and upset for our fellow citizens and for their future, Suu Kyitoldthe press.

Today there are over 40,000 nonprofits that focus on military and veteran issues, according toCharity Watch.

Most of those registered as nonprofits are chapters of larger organizations, but some of them are single chapter projects that focus on specific needs within the veteran community.

Here at We Are the Mighty, we wanted to explore some of those advocacy groups you might not have heard ofin a bit more depth.

Community Solutions is a nonprofit devoted to ending homelessness, and one of itsprojects, Built for Zero, is committed to eradicating veteran homelessness.

A report from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Developments HUD Exchangeestimates that there are slightly more than39,000 homeless veterans (both in shelters and without shelter). While still a significant number, that number has seen huge decreases in the last few years thanks in part to partnerships with programs like Built for Zero.

Built for Zero is an intense national program that helps communities develop and implement drastic plans to addressthe issue of veteran and chronic homelessness, and the conditions that create it. The motivation is two-fold: homelessness costs local economies more money by sustaining shelters and emergency medical care, andthat veterans whove defended this country shouldnt be homeless in it.

Homelessness is a manmade disaster, and it can be solved, Community Solutionspresident Rosanne Haggerty wrote in the nonprofits2015 Annual Report.

Built for Zero partners with communities and teaches them how to come up with ways to pool and managetheir resources, tapping into previously non-traditional homelessness-fighting resources, like businesses, churches, and even real estate companies in order to address some of the conditions that impact homeless veterans.

Employment, transportation and healthcare are just some of the issues that the project addresses when fighting homelessness.

Community Solutions works upstream and downstream of the problem by helping communities end homelessness where it happens and improve the conditions of inequality that make it more likely to happen in the future, Haggerty wrote in the report.

Rather than make homelessness just a crime-fighting task, Built for Zero makes it a community task.

The techniques Built for Zero utilize have been proven to work. Earlier this week, a community in Wisconsin announced that it had eliminated veteran homelessness. To date, Built for Zero has housed over 40,000 homeless veterans, and helped 5 communities to accomplish their goals of eradicating veteran homelessness.

In 2015 alone, Community Solutions raised over $9 million through donations and grants. That money assisted in housing over 20,000 homeless veterans in 75 communities- and it saved tax payers an estimated $150 million doing it.

Check outhow you can get involved with Built for Zero and impact veteran homelessness in your community.

One thing thats great about being in the military is you get legitimate, professional license to practice sneaking up on people. Its the ten year olds dreamand no adult has ever, in the history of maturity, grown out of it.

Try this.

Google search sneak up gif.

Got it?

Great. See you in ten hours.

Pictured above is Creeping With Intent To Scare Someone Crapless, a perennial favorite. Note that it isnt actually the raptor costume that makes this effective. This can be perpetrated to equal or greater effect eu naturale.

And never underestimate the joys of the Tip-Toe-Tail-Tip-Tug, as demonstrated here. Be very, very careful who you do this to.

And heres an example of the classic game, Whos Hunting Whom? Watch closely. Which dog do you most identify with? Your answer to this question will force irrevocable conclusions to be drawn about your personality.

For instance, Max is Dog #1, the hunter of the hunter of the hunted.

He makes it seem like hes working his core when in fact, hes lying in wait (Go90 Max Your Body screenshot)

Why is he Dog #1?

Because this is Max. Max doesnt sneak. Kids sneak. Max stalks. Stalks like a fox. His prey? Other jocks. And he doesnt wear socks. Max wears stalkings.

In this episode, Max gets down and dirty with the core-connected muscles that make it possible for you to low crawl toward your target and then lay down some suppressing fire from the prone position.

But admit it. You thought youd sneak out today without doing PT. Well, sorry, but Max has been hunting your ass since lunch break. Hes got you in his crosshairs and theres nowhere to run. Because he can take anything you cherished during childhood and turn it into a regimen for self-improvement (for example, rope swings).

Remember how you loved Spider-Man?

Oh the crawliness that is me! (gif via smosh.com)

Yeah, about that:

This is the crawliness thats about to be you. (Go90 Max Your Body screenshot)

Watch as Max ignores your pleas for mercy, in the video embedded at the top.

The U.S. Navy has suspended its search for nine missing sailors from the USS John S. McCain after looking in vain for more than 80 hours.

Despite help from other countries, the Navy was unable to find the nine sailors within a 2,100-square mile area. However, the Navy will continue to look for any sailors who may have been trapped inside the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, which collided with a Liberian merchant vessel Aug. 21 east of the Malacca Strait.

In the aftermath of the collision, divers recovered the body of another one of the sailors, Electronics Technician 3rd Class Kenneth Aaron Smith, a 22-year-old from New Jersey.

From working at McDonalds, to attending Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC), to serving more than 18 years each in the U.S. Army Reserve identical twin master sergeants are mobilized together for the third time.

Master Sgt. Bryant Howard and his identical twin brother, Master Sgt. Joseph Howard, motor transport operators, 450th Movement Control Battalion (MCB), are currently deployed together to Kuwait marking the third time they have deployed together.

Bryant decided to join first.

I was in high school, (and) I was also working at McDonalds, and my mom called me lazy. he said. I figured I wasnt, so I was going to get her mad and join the Army.

For Joseph, the decision to join the Army was much easier after he found out that his brother was joining.

I tried joining the National Guard. The recruiter didnt take me seriously. Joseph said. I was going to back out, then I found out my brother was joining the Reserve, so I went ahead and joined too.

Once their decision to join was finalized, Bryant and Joseph needed to pass through Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) before leaving for basic training.

We were still in high school, just turned 18. We were trying to get on the battle buddy system, but something happened at MEPS and Bryant wasnt able to join the same time I did. Joseph said. He had to go back four months later. Because of that, they couldnt get us to Basic (Training) together, even though we went at the same time. I went to Fort Jackson; he went to Fort Sill.

Although the buddy system was not possible for Basic Training, the brothers were reunited at Advanced Individual Training (AIT).

We did go to AIT together at Fort Leonard Wood though. It took the drill sergeants a month to realize there was twins in the unit. They threw a fit because they thought we were just one super high-speed person Joseph said.

Confusion on the brothers identities, like at AIT, has allowed them to play pranks all of their life.

Our last day of high school, we switched classes. Bryant said. We had a different style uniforms in school I had a pullover, and he had a button up shirt. Josephs teacher could tell us apart, even though she didnt know me but my teacher didnt recognize him.

After high school, the military was not the only time that Bryant and Josephs paths have crossed.

We both worked at one time at Direct TV Joseph said. Also, we both had some sort of experience in law enforcement. I became a police officer, he worked in a jail he was a corrections officer. The weird part about that was if I dropped somebody off at jail, they might run into him and think he was me. We dont necessarily try to follow each other thats just the way things happen. It really is a small world.

Even today their civilian careers have brought them not only to the same state, but the same location.

Now were both mill-techs. Joseph works in the RPAC (Reserve Personnel Action Center) and I work for a unit Bryant said.

Michael Howard, motor transport operators, 498th Transportation Company, and Sgt. 1st Class Bryant Howard, motor transport operator, 850th Transportation Company, pose for a photo as Bryant prepares to redeploy back to the U.S. at Kandahar Airfield, April. 28, 2014.

We actually work in the same building two different units. I work for the 88th Readiness Division, he works for the 383rd Military Intelligence Battalion Joseph added.

When Bryant and Joseph heard about an opportunity to deploy together with the 450th MCB, they took full advantage.

We deployed together in 2003 and 2009 to Iraq Bryant said.

He deployed to Afghanistan at the end of 2013, and I deployed there in the beginning of 2014 so we were actually at the same place Joseph added. Our older brother actually deployed with me.

Currently, Bryant is the Trans Arabian Network Noncommissioned Officer in Charge (NCOIC).

I am the NCOIC over all the movement within Kuwait, Jordan, Oman, and the surrounding locations. Bryant said.

While Joseph serves as the S-3 (operations) NCOIC by taking care of the personnel, administrative, and operational aspects.

Once this deployment is complete, the brothers may finally part ways. Joseph is considering retirement from the Reserve.

As a woman was practicing her routine training and broadcasting it live to her followers outside in Naypidu, the capital of Myanmar, a group of military vehicles suddenly appeared behind her on their way to Parliament.

According to a Twitter user Embed a Tweet, Who identifies himself as Angel Marads, a political scientist graduated from the University of Salamanca, the video was posted on Burmese Facebook account.

Marad even shared the video with another user who is an expert in video editing concluded that it was real, although it couldnt be supported by additional sources.

Myanmars armed forces launched a coup on Monday and arrested prominent political figures, including Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, dealing a major blow to the countrys important and irregular progress toward democracy, which was achieved after five decades of military rule.

The military television channel, Mayawadi, announced that the Armed Forces will rule the country for a year. He stated that this measure was necessary because the government did not take any action on the fraud allegations raised after the November elections (in which Suu Kyis ruling party won a majority of parliamentary seats at stake) and because that government convened for that election despite the coronavirus epidemic.

Myanmar.- In recent hours, a video emerged that quickly became viral, as a woman appears doing aerobics in Myanmar despite the fact that behind it, a strong military presence appears while the coup in that nation was taking place.

The protagonist of this video was identified as Khing Hnin Wai and posted the video on Facebook on Monday where she performs about three minutes of exercises in front of what appears to be an army truck convoy and a barricade.

The woman, who identifies herself as a physical education teacher and has a large following on Facebook, where she regularly posts exercise videos, doesnt skip a beat when military vehicles are seen buzzing behind her in the background.

Despite some questioning whether the video was legitimate, the woman previously posted several other clips of her top workouts from the same location, which she noted in a follow-up post after the original went viral.

Subsequently, fact-checkers verified the authenticity of this video and managed to position itself in the Twitter trends block, in several countries.
