Want to see the world through another dancer’s eyes? WE DO!
That’s why we jumped on board the latest social media app, Periscope, and did our first “scope” a few days ago.
Periscope lets anyone broadcast LIVE to the WORLD, while receiving real time questions from viewers. Just grab the app, log in (if you have a Twitter handle, you already have an account!) and join the party. (be sure to follow us @DanceSport Place)
Our first scope was an interview with two talented dancers who are quickstepping through the dancesport competitive ranks—Iaroslav Bieliei & Liliya Gladyuk.
These break-out ballroom stars had only been dancing together 2 months when they took 2nd place this year in the Blackpool Professional RS Ballroom. (nudge, nudge-are YOU waiting to get on the floor? Just do it!)
Listen in as we chatted with them LIVE from Vivo Dance Center in Hacienda Heights:
:54 expectations before the comp
2:05 the competitive mindset
3:23 mentors & team support
4:04 you can DO IT!
5:12 learn from each experience and BUILD on it
5:50 be in the MOMENT
6:43 the breakfast of champions
7:37 no rituals…just SKILLS!
8:56 why Blackpool is not a honeymoon destination
10:02 pizza, the food of Victory!
Big thanks to Iaroslav & Liliya for sitting down with us and sharing their impressive Blackpool experience.
Be sure to follow us @DanceSport Place on Periscope for our next LIVE interview.
See you on the floor!
