Hi! I’m Dearlie (a.k.a. Dee) and I live to dance.
My passion – or probably addiction – to dance all started when I was 8 years old. I used to be a shy kid, choosing to watch school programs rather than participate in it. Luckily, I became close friends with a couple of girls who were crazy for dancing; and they encouraged me to join. Countless nervous school programs later, I discovered ballroom dancing.
I remember it clearly. I just turned 14 and my mom took me to a ballroom dance club. I was amazed at how graceful the ladies moved. I wanted to be like them.
So I devoted hours each week with a dance teacher and before I knew it, I was competing in professional Dancesport competitions all over the world - and I have been for over 15 years now.
The life of a dancer can be so challenging, but nothing could be more rewarding. Whether you are a dance competitor, student, or enthusiast, I hope you will be able to relate and find helpful tips that you can apply to your own dance life.
