You guys, dancing is hard. Why am I stating the obvious? Every once in a while, it's important to give yourself a good ol' pat on the back. You're overcoming the hard parts—the sacrifices, the discipline, the pressure—and working towards your dreams.
Whether you feel like you've been in a bit of a motivation slump lately, or you just need an extra boost to get over hump day, we've got just the thing. Two talented teens from Vocational Ballet College, NSW, in Wales just released an introductory video for their blog, M&M: Minnie and Maddie. In the video, Minnie and Maddie discuss the sacrifices they've made to accomplish their dance dreams. More importantly, they talk about what dancing gives back to them. It's pretty inspiring to hear them describe the communicative power of dance—the idea that dancing can serve as a kind of therapy as you go through the inevitable challenges of growing up. (P.S. These BFFLs remind us of another adorable dancing duo, Broadway besties Beth Johnson Nicely and Amanda Kloots-Larsen.)
And the fact that their discussion serves as a voice-over to delightfully artsy dance shots—pointe shoes abound!—certainly ups the video's motivation factor. Check it out!
