In 2016, we launched the #IAmADancer campaign featuring dancers from various levels, baby ballet students to professionals. The stunning photographs show the effortless beauty of dancers’ movements. But with each pose is a story of discipline; of countless hours in the studio, honing the mind and body, always striving for perfection.
Our vision is to showcase homegrown talent, reach new audiences, promote the arts, and ultimately, to inspire our young artists to pursue their dance dreams.
Following the success of the first batch, this time we are featuring a new batch of dancers. In the coming weeks, you will get to know each dancer better. See more stunning pictures. Learn about their thoughts and feelings as well as stories of performance jitters and bloopers.
We also invite you to join this campaign and post your own pictures or videos of a perfect dance moment captured on camera. Share with us your thoughts about dance, why you love to dance, what it has taught you, your struggles and how you overcame the challenges. Let us know your moments of glory, friendships made, or perhaps your love story. Show the world what dancers are made of. Post your pictures on Facebook or Instagram, don’t forget to tag us @thatsdpointe and use the hashtags #IAmADancer and #danceisthatsdpointe. We are always on a lookout for dancers who inspire for our succeeding campaigns.
