One of the best ways that we can express ourselves is through dance. It’s one of the oldest forms of self-expression that we have. So why not utilize it?
Fortunately, there are many people who do. While some may be professionally trained dancers, others do it simply for enjoyment. It’s us, the audience members, who are lucky enough to watch others move so beautifully across the stage. Wherever that may be.
Those who are looking to take their talents to new heights have a variety of options to do so. The number of schools that specialize in dance and other dance programs seems to grow every year. This isn’t a bad thing!
It gives us the opportunity to enjoy dancers from schools such as the Shooting Stars Dance School (SSD), in Clermont, Florida, perform intricate and powerful dance routines.
SSD has been in business for 30 years! They are a well-known and established dance school that has been listed in the top 50 dance studios by the Federation of Dance. With such prestige, many aspiring dancers do their best to get through their doors.
Their website states that their ultimate goal is simple – encourage their student’s love of dance.
“It is our goal to encourage your child’s love of dance… We want to inspire, motivate, and challenge them to reach their full potential both in dance and in life.”
It seems to be working! Thousands of their former students have gone on to have successful dancing careers. Some have performed with Cirque de Soleil, Walt Disney World, NBA dance teams. Others have even performed on hit shows such as Glee and So You Think You Can Dance?
After watching a video from their performance at the KAR Dance Competition in 2018, it’s easy to see why they’re so successful.
The performers dance to Loren Allred’s, “Never Enough.” The routine was choreographed by Melissa Stokes, the owner and director of SSD.
One thing is for sure, the studio sure does have a strong fanbase. As soon as they are announced, the crowd goes wild. Literally.
Onlookers can be heard screaming and shouting before the routine even begins. But once it does, it’s clear as to why people are so excited to watch them perform.
While the routine starts off subtle and with only five dancers on stage, things take a pretty drastic turn as more dancers join in and the music, eventually, becomes electrifying.
The majority of the performance is done by women. A man pops up throughout to perform some of the choreography as well. But primarily he is there to lift up the dancers. The women do more than hold their own here.
Their movements are graceful yet, definite. One of their strengths is their ability to have so many dancers on stage and still perform their routine in unison. There isn’t much distraction as everyone appears to be on their A-game.
At one point, there are more than 15 dancers on the stage!
As the music intensifies, so does the performance. It’s difficult not to lean in and become completely immersed in an exciting performance happening before you.
They even bring out mirrors about halfway through. At first, it isn’t clear as to why they are there but in the end, it’s revealed – we have to be enough for ourselves.
The message is strong and the performance is nothing short of outstanding.
Way to go, SSD!
