Over the past years I have been fortunate enough to travel a fair bit to NZ and spend some very valuable time with long-time friends/dancers.
One thing that always stands out to me is how some schools are more like families.
Latin Fire is exactly this !!!
Each person in the team supports the other. They dance together, they party together, they hang out together. It’s like they live for each other. It’s no wonder that success breathes through such strong dance families… and I mean success in a bigger sense than competition success.
It has been a long hard road, full of blood, sweat, bruises, and tears!
I wouldn't have made it out onto the stage without some amazing support.
My team mates from Latin Fire, especially Kathy Reese, Brenna Ogier, Mellinda Fitzgerald, Holly Hobbie, Nicola McCall, & Maeve Gresham.
Thanks to my flatmate Michael Hobbs for helping with my music and calling me moose!
Thanks to Donna Frost for your support and guidance.
Warren Frost thank you for kicking my arse when I wanted to throw in the towel.
And finally to my family, especially my husband for picking me up whenever I was down.
I love you all.
Big hug to all of Latin Fire peeps for being such enthusiastic, supportive and accomplished competitors/performers/people. I feel like you all participated in every possible aspect of this year’s Brisbane Latin Dance Festival…. youth, adult, masters, teams, duets, couples, freestyle, choreography, competition, performance, support crew, volunteers.
You won trophies, medals, titles, places….. and you definitely won me over as an absolute lifelong fan.
Go Latin Fire!
