It was such a pleasure to watch Victoria Regan’s informative and absolutely delightful lecture titled “The Seven Secrets of Great Performers”. Accessing her extensive knowledge and experience from performing on Broadway, she gives a unique and interesting view on how to create great, authentic and memorable performances. Her “secrets” are incredibly valuable, tangible and wonderfully thought out. She gives a clear road map on a subject that’s not always easy to fully understand or apply…How do you actually create a great performance? What makes a couple capture the hearts of an audience? How can you make your performance memorable and different from everyone else? What makes you stand out? Well…Victoria has the secrets!

It was both a challenge and an immense pleasure to be part of Vicki’s lecture. She talked about performance using unusual for us dancers approach on that matter, inspired by the theatre world. We always believed this subject to be extremely important if one wishes to have a complete package on the dance floor. It was challenging but also very fun for us to do it on the spot, getting us to use our instincts and dig deep into our own life experience. Through various exercises and Vicki’s guidance hopefully we were able to demonstrate the impact and change which can be achieved using these principles. We strongly believe that implementing these principles into everyday practice will improve your performance whether you are a beginner or a top level professional.
