“I’m so grateful for dance because it gives me a way to express exactly how I’m feeling when there are no words to describe it.” -Lucy Doherty
‘Making it’ as a professional dancer is hard. Not only do you have to be talented, but your passion for dance has to exceed beyond all other things. Sacrifices must be made, along with the sweat and tears. But what every professional dancer has in common, is the ability to work harder than they did before, due to all the pressures they face from criticism and rejection.
Dancers from Australia are travelling overseas to see if they can make it professionally in the dance industry. There is a trick to being successful; and it is not exactly a glamorous one.
