Video Review: Stacey Q “We Connect”

In silhouette, Stacey Q dances by the window. Lit in sunrise, orange, she dances around the apartment, wearing a crop top and tutu. She walks over to the ladder and holds onto the bars. She swings by the column and kicks up her leg. The band plays behind her.

Lit in electric blue, she continues to dance, wearing a long-sleeved ruffled blouse as a romper. She hugs the column.

In black-and-white, she wears an off-the-shoulder dress and jumps up and down by the window. In lavender, she tugs at her blouse. Back in sunrise orange, she sings with a microphone. In hot pink, she dances by the band.

In silhouette, the band plays their instruments. Back in electric blue, she plays the guitar. Lit in a faded mustard yellow, she continues to dance in the tutu. She swings by the column and smiles.

Rating: 4/5

Stacey Q wipes her face with a towel. She tells the band they gave her a good workout for the day. The guitar player asks what she’s doing for the rest of the day. She says she’s going to dance class later on and asks if they want they go to lunch with her. They say yes.

During lunch, one of the guitar players says he’s got hired by a record label. He’s going to be a session musician. He hopes he can go on a tour someday. She gives him a high-five and says maybe they’ll be hanging out with their favorite singers. However, she wants to try to get on a Broadway show first.

At her dance class, she is asked to demonstrate the current choreography by the teacher. The teacher highlights her form and tells the students to watch her movement. After class, the teacher lets her about a dance fellowship. She says she can help her with application. Q says that it would be awesome. The teacher asks her to wait for a minute. She returns with the application and gives her an overview. Q says she’ll come after work to meet with her about it.

Back home on the subway, she writes out a list of the things she’ll need for the application. The deadline is a couple of months ago. But it’ll take time to gather all the material. It’ll be overwhelming and stressful. However, she’s ready for it.
