Being inspired by other dancersNathan Barr
By watching other dancers online it can give you that extra bit of motivation or confidence to work harder, find a new style, and explore different types of movement. At Dance Sensations we love our students to improvise, self choreograph and create new movement as it is such an important part of growing as both a dancer and an artist. Sometimes, watching people closer to your age can open up your eyes to the possibility of things you can achieve, regardless of how young you may be. These 5 dancers are all under the age of 20 and each have different amazing qualities that make them so inspiring to watch and learn from!
Nicole is a 12 year old dancer, most well known for her hip hop videos posted on Instagram and Youtube (see above). She is extremely strong and sassy in her movements and shows so much confidence when she dances. She is not only super confident in her movement but she is always adding tonnes of personality with her facial expressions, making her seem fearless even when dancing with older and more experienced dancers.
Tate is a 14 year old contemporary / ballet dancer from Canada who was featured on “So You Think You Can Dance – The Next Generation”. She proves that dance is so much more than ‘just a sport’, as she is an incredible story teller through her movement and facial expressions. She has a gift that makes the audience feel like they are part of a journey. Tate is also a super hard worker with amazing technique and overall is such an inspiring young dancer to watch! Check her out here 🙂
Sean is a 16 year old dancer and choreographer from California, USA. One thing that makes Sean stand out from other dancers is his ability to add his own personal style into every piece of choreography. Sean is incredible at isolations which makes him awesome to watch and adds so much dynamism to his movement. Check him out here!
At 8 years old Ayden is an extremely talented young dancer from America. He may be tiny but he has so much energy and stage presence that it doesn’t hold him back!! Ayden trains in all styles of dance but is especially well known for his hip hop videos that are posted on his Instagram account, showcasing his amazing isolations and confidence especially when dancing with students who are much older than him!
Ella is only 13 years old yet she has strength and control beyond her years, along with amazing technique. She is incredible when it comes to tricks, turns and flexibility and she is a true example of ‘hard work pays off!’ . One of her most impressive achievements is her self choreographed contemporary solo “River”. Ella is extremely good at improvisation as she always finds new ways to move hit the accents in the music.
