This is not only about dance, it’s about being a family.
World dance family.
When someone becomes a dancer, the world is slowly changing.
That person starts to spend more and more time at the dance school, on training or on the dance hall. It also means getting to know new people – other dancers, who become very important in life after some time. Dancers become a dance group. Team. Friends. Later on, SECOND FAMILY. After spending some time together, preparing for the competitions, they start to know each other better and better. They start to speak the same language, dance language. They know exactly the dance style of each person in the group, they are able to predict their moves, and learn from each other. From day to day, they start to spend more time together and it’s not only on the training but also after. Thinking together what to do, where to go, what to eat and finally, they start to support each other when having problems. In good times and bad times, always.
All of it is called family, dance family and it’s priceless.
Taking part in competitions, workshops and dance events in various cities, gave me a chance to be a witness of the dance support in the whole dance community. Even tho, the hip hop dancers have a battle, they “fight” against each other and compete, it is a healthy rivalry. Maybe it doesn’t look like, because everyone has an angry face, but there is no place for violence, verbal abuse and judgment in dance.
We – dancers, have a respect for each other. Of course, it is still a competition, and the dancers are jealous that someone else has better moves, or went further. But the shared passion to dance is something what wins here. Everyone is grateful for the opportunity to be among the other dancers. They smile, have fun, greet and last but not least support each other and cheer on.
No matter where is the dancer from, how old is he/she, what language does he/she speak.
Dancers are one big family, with respect and love to dance.
Dance is the language here, the most beautiful language.
