I’ve had a few people ask me my thoughts on the ‘good morning america’ incident that happened recently. Basically, a tv presenter made a backhanded comment about how Prince George was doing ballet and that his enjoyment wouldn’t last long.
It’s sad. I base my identity on dance. It’s my soul; consuming almost every part of my life.
I was an an awkward kid, but once I found dance as my calling, I found comfort in who I am.
Being a dancer though, high school was never easy. I wasn’t bullied, but I never truely felt like I belonged. And I wish I could say that times have changed. But it’s comments like the ones said this week that feed the pessimistic side of me. However, when people ask me how I’m so committed to dancing, it’s comments like this that come to mind.
I want to prove these sorts of people wrong. I want to prove that dance isn’t something that boys should fear. I want to prove that dance is something that everyone can love and enjoy, just as much as me. I want to prove to these people that, just because I dance, it doesn’t make me any less of a man than someone who plays footy.
It’s ironic but I guess I just want to say thank you to these sorts of people. You’re the reason I push myself and the reason I’m going to make it as a dancer.
