Chandré dances her way to the USA

Chandré has been dancing for 18 years; she started doing ballet at the age of six.

Local dancer Chandré Lubbe is burning up the dance floor.

She will take the United States by storm when she represents South Africa at the Applause Rising Talent Showcase (Arts) in Orlando, Florida, in July.

Her hard work and determination paid off last year when she was spotted by international talent scout Kim Meyers at the International Arts Talent Showcase after she joined the Just You Agency.

The 23-year-old said it is said the United States of America is where dreams come true and stars are made.

“Going to Orlando to attend Arts gives me the opportunity to represent South Africa internationally,” said Chandré.

Chandré said at this talent convention she will get the opportunity to work with and meet some of the top agents, casting directors, dance companies and talent scouts from Hollywood, Miami and Asia.

“Disney will also be there to meet us and work with us. This opportunity will open doors to my professional dancing career,” she said.

Last year Chandré moved to Pretoria to pursue her career as a dance teacher and choreographer and be able to lead the Christian Revival Church Pretoria dance ministry.

The former Brentwood Park resident said from a young age her biggest dream was to go to the USA one day, especially New York.

“This opportunity is a dream come true, I am beyond excited and can’t believe this is happening.”

Chandré has been dancing for 18 years; she started doing ballet at the age of six.

Through her career, she achieved her teaching qualification through the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD).

In 2017 she qualified as a registered ballet teacher with the Association of International Dance Teachers (AIDT) and got full colours – silver higher tap to solo – through the association.

Chandré said her love and passion for dance motivates her to always push harder and always get 100 per cent in everything she does.

“Knowing that God has everything under control gives me peace and pure certainty that I can do anything I put my mind to,” said Chandré.

“My drive comes from all the amazing support I have from my family and friends, they are always so excited for every opportunity that comes my way with my dancing career.”

She said the entertainment and dance industry is a cut-throat and competitive industry wherever you go.

“There have been so many times where I have lost my dignity and self-confidence, thinking I was never good enough for this industry,” said Chandré.

“Younger artists and dancers aspiring to pursue their professional career in the entertainment industry need to take risks because that one step out of the “safe” boundary can propel you to where you need to be and out of your comfort zone,” she added.
