My daughter, CeeJay, has been selected to be part of the SA Dance Team to represent South Africa at the International DanceStar World Finals event, the World Dance Masters, in Croatia during May 2019. Over 30 countries will take part in this prestigious international dance event this year. The South African qualifiers were held during September and October 2018 and 1800 dancers from all over South Africa competed in front of an international jury for their coveted place on the SA Dance Team. CeeJay has qualified in the dance genre of hip-hop for categories duo, crew and formation.
The dance team will receive their colours to represent South Africa at the World Dance Masters in Croatia in an official ceremony scheduled for Saturday, 4 May 2019. The SA Dance Team have also been selected as special guests at the opening ceremony of the DanceStar World Finals this year.
These competitions are organised by the European Dance Union (ESDU) and SA Dance Talent - a member of the European Dance Union, the International Dance Federation as well as the Dance World Cup organisation.
CeeJay is an all-round outstanding teen. She is single-minded in her focus to always doing her best in whatever she sets her heart on. She joined the dance studio just short of a year ago (where most of her peers have been dancing from a very young age) and once her goal was set on qualifying for Croatia, she worked with vigour, enthusiasm and absolute dedication to achieve her desire. This in the midst of balancing her role as head girl of Grade 7 (2018) and keeping up her academic achievements and extra mural activities (she has recently been selected captain of the netball team and is the youngest leader in the church kids band).
CeeJay has placed top overall achiever in her grade for majority of her primary school career and continues to show promise and potential for greatness in the way she leads herself and brings her A-game to every area of her life. For these reasons and more we desire to give her exposure to opportunities like Croatia to further motivate her and show our support for her and pride in her.
The SA team departs for Croatia on Saturday, 18 May 2019. The flights are the most important element and needs to be booked and paid as soon as possible.
Flights from OR Tambo to Marco Polo Int Airport (return) | R 17010.93 per traveller - R 34 021,86
Dancestar competition team gear | R880
Subsistence and travel (10-day tour | 2 travellers) - Daily lunches and beverages (estimated value) | R 5168,14
The ability to travel to Croatia for this tour will not only prove that hard work pays off but will give CeeJay much needed exposure and experience that will stand her in good stead as she pursues her desired career as a professional dancer. Also it will signify to her that her dreams need not be limited by financial constraints because where there is a will, there is a way!
