So we hear this saying pretty often, live your dream have fun do something you passionate about and just like everything you do, nothing without hard work and perseverance will last.
This weekend Out of Africa Dance Academy hosted a production at the Artscape Theatre. I help out the NPO with PR and Marketing I started this venture with them last year when they hosted their first show you can read all about it here.
Courteney along with her fellow dancers and aspiring actors took the stage this weekend and did amazing. Everything was on point from the lights, music and sound and not to forget the performance in acting and dancing. I helped out backstage on Saturday night and had the privilege to see the show on Sunday night it was awesome to finally see all their hard work be displayed so beautifully on the stage.
The show is about turning your dreams into reality no matter your limitations; included in the cast are talented disabled dancers showcasing their amazing ballroom and Latin skills, it came together nicely. The show also highlights what’s happening on the streets and that Dancing is the better option to take kids off the street away from crime and drugs and all that bad stuff.
The show was funny, touching, well-acted and well danced and not forgetting the live band gave it that extra kick and just finished it off amazingly. From singing, playing in a band acting and dancing. Whether you abled or not young or old anything is possible if you work hard and are truly passionate about your God gifted talents.
The production was slick and professional thanks to the Choreography from Jason Meyer and the script writing, directing and producing skills of Ivy Meyer. Gladys Bullock who is in charge of the Ballroom and Latin dancers’ abled and disabled well done for helping craft these talented dancers. Thanks to the Artscape Theatre for giving Dreams into Reality 2 a chance to be performed on their prestigious stage and helping youth development in Arts and Culture.
The local talent saw last night was amazing and the message that anyone can turn their Dreams into Reality no matter your circumstances and limitations is one we often forget. Seeing the show saw many dreams come to life for all of the cast members and I am sure it left the audience inspired too.
So go for whatever makes your brains tick and heart skip a beat, we all have one life let’s make it count. I was truly inspired and entertained by Dreams into Reality 2 and it was a great reminder that we can achieve whatever we put our minds too.
Let me know what inspires you and what you going to do to make it happen??
Hope you enjoy some show pictures of the cast and the production.
Peace love and Happiness
