Dance Like everyone is watching!
Through the years dancing has gotten me through so much. And this weekend really made me realize why I fell in love with such an amazing art.
This past weekend I attended an awesome Dance off in Tampa FL. It was full of fun, dancing and all for a good cause.
Mira TV Hosted their first "Back to School Dance off & Auditions". To get in, everyone had to bring school supplies for local schools. I was early, and the barrel was overflowing!
It was so cool to see people of all ages giving back to the community.
Not was it a great way to help out, but Mira TV had dance auditions as well.
30 lucky dancers were selected from the auditions for a televised commercial.
Mira TV were a great group and really made the event amazing.
Guest Judges Included...
MouseVader, Dreama Davidson, Valerie Morales and Carla C. Thomas-Johnson
(Click below for details on the judges!)
Yes it was a competition, and let me tell you, it was fierce!
But, there was such a support and love through each and every audition.
Even with all that said, the judges had a TOUGH decision on their hands!
What I Love about the dance community, is that we accept all. Yes there will always be the negative Nancy's, but through dance, there is a bond created. We all seem to know how it feels to love dance no matter what style we choose and accept one another and not HATE. This past weekend, really showed me how dance evolves, but it's still all from the same root word.."DANCE" so we all can relate.
No matter if you are a ballerina, b-boy or tapper, we all have a mutual love and understanding.
These kids truly showed that Sophisticated is about being yourself, but still arriving on time, being prepared and professional.
Keep it classy ladies and gents, and keep dancing!!
Below is some live footage from the auditions. Take a look!
