Competition Inspirational Quote

Competition Inspirational Quote by Richard DiSarno

Richard was a personal friend of mine and a friend of the entire dance studio business, As a young man he was a social worker in Buffalo. He and his friend Sam Fiorello owned a dance studio in that area, who organized and owned "Dancing Deb" a mainly solo/title entry competition in the late 60's early 70's. In the 70's he became the director of DANCE AMERICA, a studio dance competition owned and organized by Art Stone Theatricals. The following is a quote he wrote to calm the many over-hyped, competitive dance scene we see today. Enjoy...

"A dance competition is the way a certain set of judges view a certain set of dancers on a certain day. If we had done this competition yesterday, or if one of the judges had been someone else, chances are the results would in some way be different. It is good that we compete as dancers, because we compete every day in life. Competitions help to show us where we have been, where we are now, and where we have to aim to go in the future. But it is important to remember that the true worth of anyone, as a dancer or person, will never be measured by a trophy or cash prize."
