„Dancers are a different breed. A dancer must harness strength, conviction, freedom and structure to give life to the dance.” Or so they say.
There were and still are many documentaries and reality shows about the life of a dancer or dancer wanna-be. It seems somehow the beauty and strenght of this wonderful art can transcend to people’s hearts more and more nowadays. From ‘Dancing with a star’ to ‘So you think you can dance’, TV stations try to maximize rates out of the dancers’ efforts to become famous or from associations between common people and celebrities. Many such show have a previsible ending and few really influence (in a positive way) the destiny of young talents on a long term. This time, „Laurieann Gibson is Born To Dance” launches on BET Networks with the help of the young talented choreographer Gibson. Some facts on her from TV producers: ‘from award-winning choreography for Lady Gaga to her creative direction on VH-1′s “Divas Salute The Troops,” to music video director for Keri Hilson and two series of her own on television including “The Dance Scene” on E! and “Born To Dance” on BET, she wears many hats and wears them so well. Dance Track would like to call her the “transition queen” as she has moved from one title to the next seamlessly. And we don’t mean doing four 8-counts and running to the next position. We mean a real transition with ography, big girl walks while wearing fierce fashion and presenting ground-breaking creativity with choreography.’
It seems a good choice for the show, still rates will have the last word in it.
