Dance is my super power
This month we are sharing stories that demonstrate the transformative power of dance.
We’ll be featuring videos, articles and interviews from people who have overcome physical and mental illness and disabilities, and those who have used dance to fight back against stereotypes and prejudice – but also share content about how dance makes us feel; there is a super hero in every dancer. And not forgetting the dance teachers around the world using their super power to inspire us all.
Victoria Trevino – RAD Voices
For Victoria Trevino, there is nothing more moving than young dancers achieving their dreams. As a ballet teacher in Mexico City, she confronts many severe challenges, yet the vision of succeeding keeps her going and she finds the immense trust, passion and conviction of the children and young people that arrive at the ballet studio deeply moving; they arrive with nothing but hope. Her response to these challenges was to create Ballet Joven CDMX in 2014; a charity that embraces young dancers and supports financial and educational opportunities.

"Ballet is a subject that should be open for everybody. If you are willing to work hard for it and you don't have the perfect feet? I don't care. Join me. Let's go on stage."Victoria Trevino
