🏆 3rd Place 🥉 Bachata Competition🏆
Going back to where it all started #stepsfam @stepsdancestudiotoronto
❤️ My coach @little_bird_jah
»» Yes this brilliant human, a soul sister, Leo twin, Chip and Lumiere friendship and so many more —thank you for being there ALWAYS especially in your own little ways of just crawling into my particularly well shielded bubble and just poking it softly to allow it to decompress and breathe. 🌸 .
🚨 Although this was a local Toronto Jack and Jill (or Jill in my case) competition, it was still my first. The adrenaline is unreal, because yes you’re being judged by the founder of Steps @jenaucoin27
and Head of Canada Congress CSBC, Canadian Bachata Champions @torresangelode
and International Salsa Winners @meat
rechinez and it’s not like social dancing — the feeling is different and this is just a teaspoon of it. 🚨 .
. 👉🏼👉🏼My immediate reaction hearing that I only placed 3rd was diasspointment, only because I’m always hungry for that extra edge and welcoming with open arms constructive criticism, knowing where I went wrong and what my areas for improvement are. Yes, I am the harsh on myself kind, and that’s completely okay. .
🔥 But then, when your coach comes at you with a wide smile and reminds you that 1) I was 0.5, and 1.5 points away from my top two colleagues and friends, 2) That Unlike many, I’ve never competed before and 3) That I’ve taught myself how to lead bachata 8 months ago is a huge ordeal. So that cut-some-slack-but-work-harder and smarter-look and attitude has me prepped for more — especially for my Empire @bachatafemmes
and what I intend to do with it and take it further in inspiring women and communities all around the world by taking bachata competition seriously 🙏🏼. .
My next chapter is learning and being passed down to yet another fierce diva and Global Champion and I cannot WAIT to commence more training with @anastasiyazhurav
😍— 2019 baby I’m COMING for you !! 💯💯
