I just wanted to share (like the proud mama I am).
My son and their dance crew Academy of Hype competed in World of Dance Bay Area last week. They came home in 2nd Place.. but in my heart they will always be 1st (Of course their hometown dance crew won.. just sayin...)
I have never witnessed an amazing unit or what we call here "Ohana" as these guys. Not with just the Academy of Hype but with all their dancers in the Hyper Squad Dance Company. Maybe I'm a bit bias because my kids dance with them.. but I've been around all of them and witnessed their dedication and most importantly their passion. I have been so fortunate to know the choreographers and I can tell you firsthand that they have the utmost dedication and passion to the art of dance. It's amazing to see some career oriented individuals who are engineers by day and dancers by night. They just simply love what they do. It's not to often you see people living out their passion, we get so stuck on the social norm of finding a dead end 9-5 job just to survive, but how many of us can honestly say "I love what I do..." So I commend all the people out there.. just living their dream! It may not pay the bills but if it makes you feel happy and fulfilled, why not?
