WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR

 

I look for dancers to really own their time on stage! It's great to see a well-rehearsed piece that allows dancers the opportunity to trust themselves and let their movement shine. Not only does this bring so much to their performance quality, but it also shows their love of dance to the judges and audience.

"Your mindset going into a performance has a powerful effect, so go in with thoughts of positivity and success! Instead of stressing about what could go wrong, focus on what will go right! Visualize yourself nailing your turns, hitting your timing, and letting your emotion light up the room. Mental preparation not only builds confidence but also helps manage performance day nerves. In the same way you’d motivate a teammate, pump yourself up with all the great things about you!"

WHY DO YOU LOVE BEING

 

It’s really special to be able to acknowledge dancers for all the hard work they’ve put into their routines! I really enjoy encouraging dancers to keep pushing themselves to be their best. I also love adjudicating with IDA because we have such an amazing network of industry professionals to collaborate with and learn from.
