INTRODUCING THE FACES OF MOVE IT 2024
We spoke to Cameron to get to know him better and find out more about his dance career so far! You can also check out our MOVE IT socials to see even more from our Faces of MOVE IT 2024!
What style of dance do you specialise in?
One of my strongest qualities in dance is my versatility, but i will be performing a contemporary solo at MOVE IT.
How did you get into dancing/ where did you train?
I decided I wanted to try dance classes at the age of 6 and attended dance design for 4 years. When I turned 10 I decided I wanted to push my ability in all dancing, singing, and acting and started my professional training at Nazene Danielle’s dance dynamix. After 6 years of intense training at NDDD I continued my training towards a professional career at the Wilkes academy of Performing Arts on a full scholarship.
Who inspires you in the dance industry?
At the moment I’d say some of my biggest inspirations in the industry would have to be Lukas Mcfarlane, Josh Denyer and Dean Lee. These 3 choreographers have made a big impact on the type of dancer and person I am today.
Describe yourself in three words.
Independent, Driven and Creative.
What are you most looking forward to in the next five years?
I am excited to take my big next step into the working industry and see what opportunities come my way over the next 5 years.
If you could travel back in time, what advice would you give to your younger self?
Have more belief in yourself, your hard work will start to pay off eventually.
What are you most excited about at MOVE IT 2024?
I can’t wait to see a lot of familiar faces as the dance community is a very big but small world and MOVE IT is great for bringing everyone together in one building. I am also excited to perform on the main stage again.
What’s your favourite snack?
I love fruit, especially mango, strawberry, raspberry, and apple slices.
What is the biggest challenge you have overcome?
I’d say the biggest challenge I have overcome is stage fright. I suffered from very bad stage fright ever since I started performing at 6 years old, this wasn’t ideal for me as I grew up at competitions and often performing on stage. I’d say I’ve overcome stage fright a lot as it doesn’t effect me as much as it used to, of course, I still feel nervous sometimes but over the years I have learnt ways that I can control it and calm myself down.
Where’s your ideal holiday destination?
I love the greek islands purely because Mama Mia is my comfort movie. I also love Italian food so I would love to be able to visit Italy at some point in my life.
