Which challenges have you encountered?
I think that, when dance becomes your profession, you face the constant challenge of wanting to elevate your craft while coping with aging and with the injuries that come with the job, in addition to the stress of staying relevant in a very competitive field. It’s these challenges that give many of us the “fire” that keeps us going.
On a personal note, I’ve broken my leg in my first dance battle, I’ve gotten several concussions, and I have sprained every single one of my joints at one point of my career. Whenever I am recovering from an injury, I use the time to see how I can move differently and continue to create while listening to my body.
I truly believe that “Everyone Can Dance” and it’s really the slightest movement that makes the greatest difference in your performance. Dance is energy! Despiteall the challenges, there is always an opportunity to continue to build, no matter where you are in your career.
