Competitive Adjudicating Season (10 events) begins for me next week (I’ll post highlights from these awesome events as they occur)! 🏆❤️🏆
The first 📷 by @fstopsnapetures captures a very special moment I had with his son, Nicholas from the @the_dream_centre, during Special Awards at @viewdancechallenge.
I live for these moments over the course of the weekend. Moments where I can say to an extraordinary talent, such as Nicholas, “if you ever feel doubtful about wanting to be a dancer you must remember this moment with me and know that I am backing you up 100%”. It’s just an instinct I get and when it comes about-I act on it immediately! 👊🏻
Way back when, an 11-year-old boy (me) was given the same encouragement by a principal dancer from the Royal Ballet Company (the late Sir John Gilpin - see 📷 #2) and I will never forget that moment - it motivated me throughout my entire career and continues still.
DANCERS - take to the stage this season with fire 🔥 and passion ❤️. Embrace your talent and let us ALL see the true artist that is YOU!!!!
