The Saturday night at NYDF 2018 was a night to remember! The unique atmosphere of the beautiful historic Roosevelt hotel in the heart of Manhattan, the unbelievable audience, responsive to the slightest move and great music throughout the evening, it all created the most friendly and encouraging environment for the competitors of that night to dance their hearts out.
First of all, I would like to congratulate the organizers of NYDF Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova for creating such a unique, special and inspiring event that is fast turning into one of the highlights of the year.
“Why am I doing that again and again?” I hear these words every day. I see frustration, disappointment and even anger on the faces of my students. It’s sad because ‘nil novi sub luna’ (nothing is new under the moon). Mistakes are a necessary part of any educational or growing process.
