The dance floor is often seen as the final frontier of dance, with choreographers and choreographers of all stripes being called upon to create some of the most memorable dance sequences of all time.
A large proportion of dancers have had to work long hours to get the job done, and for many of them, the hours are often a struggle to come by.
But the dancing is also a major part of the overall experience for many, with many of the dances being choreographed by someone from their own family or close friends.
For some, it’s also a means of showing support and camaraderie.CBC News asked the people behind the choreography what they would say to anyone who is struggling to get their work done on a regular basis.
“I don’t know what to say to you,” said dancer and singer Shauna MacLellan.
“I think that we all need to keep pushing each other and keep making our own art.
That’s what it is. “
It’s just a way of life.
That’s what it is.
It’s just what we do.
It has nothing to do with the dress.”CBC’s Scott MacIntyre asked some of those working in the industry about the challenges that many people face.”
People say that they want to be a professional and it’s just like being a professional.
There’s no pressure,” said dance instructor Rebecca Hennings.
“There’s no one saying you can’t do it, because there’s no money in it.”
Some dancers say that it’s hard to get paid, especially if you have a young child who needs the support of an adult.
“They do say they don’t want to take the kids out and play anymore because they don’ want to get in the way of their dancing, or that their parents are not allowed to see them,” said performer and dancer Kristina Leighton.
“And I just want to let them know that they can still do it if they want.”
For some, the experience can also bring back memories from years ago.
“We were in a bar and one of the dancers was the only one that danced and she was a dancer, so it was kind of a big thing,” said Henning.
“She danced the whole night, so we were all like, ‘Wow, we got to dance again!'”
“We’ve got to keep working hard, keep getting better,” said Leighton, who is currently teaching at a dance school in Montreal.
“We don’t have any other choice, because we’re all in this together.”
