'What do you think is the most important quality for an outstanding teacher - good subject knowledge, good behaviour management or 'sparkle'?
Soooo - go on! Ask me the question!!!
'What, for you, is most important in a dance performance? Is it knowledge of the dance, technique or 'sparkle'?
And yes folks, my answer is the same. Of course they are ALL important, but what makes a performance special, what engages me, what brings it to life, is undoubtably that sparkle!
We've all seen them. Those dances that are oh-so technically perfect. Not a foot wrong, not a muscle movement out of place. Immaculate costuming and make up. A seemingly spot on representation of their style. Hell, there might even be smiles.
So when I see you performing at a hafla near me I will give you all kudos and huge audience smiles and thanks just for getting up there to entertain me. If you are showing me a great representation of your style, whatever that may be, I will hold you in great esteem. If your technique is spot on, your execution of the moves flawless, then I promise you I will be in awe.
You give me your soul and I'll give you mine!
Until next time - happy dancing!
Gypsy Caravan Dance Company International, I do love you forever!
I have your souls!!!
