Every year here at BCD we crown our ‘Instructor of The Year’, normally at our Annual Shows where instructors are recognized for their outstanding effort & achievements in building their dancers confidence and through breath taking performances.
This year however we’ve been unable to host our shows, so we’ve picked our ‘Instructor of The Year 2020’ based on the instructor who has shone the brightest, helped the hardest, put all their dancers first and lifted everyone’s spirits during the darkest times.
‘Instructor Of The Year 2020 – Lockdown Legend’ without a doubt goes to Crimson Storm in West Yorkshire!
Not only did Miss ‘il never do the splits’ get into the splits herself after just 2 weeks of Flex It classes – she came 2nd in our SPLITMAS competition with 15 dancers achieving their splits in less than 9 weeks!
She took on 30 dancers from an instructor struggling to cope with Christmas (yep, me lol – she covered for the Boss! Which must have been scary).
She took to Facebook every day to host our online chair challenges, across all pages! And hated every minute of it, but never whinged (well, took the mess but happily cracked on!).
She kept morale high (mainly because she’s hilarious), when spirits dropped and negativity reared it’s ugly head, Emma swooped in with a giggle and quickly lowered the tone until there was no issue remembered by anyone!
She’s made herself available to every dancer, every instructor and Head Office consistently all year.
Emma you are our Lockdown Legend and deserve to be recognized for your outstanding achievements. AND we wanted to give you something lovely (florists are not delivering over Crimbo due to covid and border closes) so £200 cash is in your bank account now to go buy yourself lots of lovely GIN, flowers & sash will arrive as soon as possible!
Thank you for all your hard work, dedication, commitment and hilarity throughout 2020,
