This is part of an on going advice series written by Shane Sparks
Dancing is not just movement, it is a feeling, it is self-expression. The one who expresses him self the best usually is the better dancer. You can know every style in the book, but having no feeling behind the moves kills it every time.
I don’t think a person who has been taking class for 6 months and learns another choreographer’s style should be a teacher!! I think teachers should have something special to offer before they are teaching anyone else; anyone can teach, but not everyone is a teacher.
Always be careful how you treat people on the way up. Understand that there’s someone you’re with who has the potential to be the next big thing. One day you’re dancing beside them, the next your auditioning for them. Respect everyone, cause you never know who’s gonna be your boss.
Just because a person is on TV doesn’t make them the best, it just means they have a smart team, or that person was prepared when the opportunity came. Don’t expect anything, you have to work for it and sometimes you have to take it.
Everyone is your competition!!!!
