I have stood on stage with my partner Jodeyne so many times over the years, and as we step onto the stage we step with excitement every time. We are always nervous but with time and experience we have learned how to calm our minds and get our butterflies in our stomach to fly in formation. With anticipation in our hearts and great smiles we set out to entice the crowds all over the world to come into our own little world for just a few moments in time and be drawn in. As we perform we watch and listen to the crowd as we pass by over and over again like an F1 race car doing death-defying tricks. We feel the chemistry stirring between us all from what we have produced together to come alive. With great anticipation of the climax at the end of our program we finish the choreography unleashing our enjoyment of performance to the people. Listening to the crowd erupt is one of the most gratifying feelings one could ever have. That rush of sound hitting you and the decibels rising around you and swelling your ears for a few seconds feels unreal. We smile at one another and think to ourselves let’s do it again.
I truly believe if people are well-trained physically and mentally one can perform in almost every condition, or in almost any scenario. I believe that as the excitement and anticipation grows in a number be it gentle or be it in an extremely demanding fast number with massive tricks we all can blow the socks off the crowd with proper training. Because an audience knows if they are being had or not, it shows if one is trained well or not, it shows that we love performing so much for the people in the seats because we do things with such ease.
I truly believe that it is the right of every single patron that buys a ticket to feel like it is the very first time it was ever performed. That is was meant for them especially. It may be our 1000th time standing on stage performing that number, but if you love what you do you will make it be awesome, you will be able to find the energy to perform is again in your pinky toe and make the crowd come alive over and over again.
I truly believe as a cast of performers and in this case which we do athletes, people need to know they are appreciated on and off stage for they have shared their heart and soul with the people. From the crew to the cast to the people behind the scenes we all belong to the a team of champions. It is very important to motivate with “why? why are we doing this?”. We are all motivated in different ways but knowing people appreciate your abilities and your effort is so rewarding on its own.
With what we do the people in the stands dictate if we survive or not. With no fans and spectators we do not work. One works because they love what they have to share in life, this life we have is very humbling, yet very rewarding emotionally, and also it can be destructive. We must always prepare ourselves for everything, every facet of life because times change. We must be adaptable and smart, we must be honest and free. When we as a team come together and we share the joy and enthusiasm we create together, and we join the mass abundance of our creative juices and great talents we can create a world together that opens the hearts of the people to come back again and again to see us perform.
When we thrive together we survive together as a team. When we grow together we have the ability to reach out and help others in need. We inspire others and do not even know it because they are to shy to say. When we smile together and joke and hug and share we attract others to join into the joy of life we live. Together we are more powerful. Leaders and the doers will shine not because of whom they are but because of how they are with the team. A leader builds the trust and the character of the hearts of the people and allows trust to grow. Coaching others to enhance their abilities to do their very best, allowing new leaders to bud and share their abilities too.
Work together, work hard, be real, help one another, give your heart, be true to yourself is being honest to others. This is what the crowd will always see and want to be a part of.
Joy, Happiness, Truth, Trust, and one kick ass performance over and over again makes for fun times. Unleash the Rock Star inside of you, NOW! Have loads of fun doing it! #bethechangeyouwanttosee
