WOWEEE!! What an incredible, inspiring, motivating, exciting week we have just had together in Los Angeles, at the amazing Dance Excellence Festival, held at the Westin Hotel LAX, where 100′s of dancers from all over the world meet once a year to share their love of dance, to learn from some of the best choreographers in LA, to share, to inspire, to meet new friends from all over the World.
This year we took 20 from the Big Dance Company, 12 performers , 3 social students and 4 parents, and we had an absolute ball!!
Over the course of the week we performed in Disneyland, and Knotts Berry Farm and took 18 hours of dance classes in hip hop, african, ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, auditioning and performance then were judged by the weeks choreographers at a theatre performance where we performed a hip hop piece, a Modern piece and a variety piece. We were on honoured and overwhelmed to be awarded for our 5th year Excellence in all categories, the highest award that you can recieve.
The group that we had put together were not from the same crew and some not even the same classes, they worked so hard over the year and it paid off.
What an incredible group of young people we had with us and they really made me proud by representing not just the studio but the country in a very professional and respectful way. Congratulations To Emma Wilkins and Jess Lavery for representing the Big Dance Company on company show you were breathtaking!!!
