ANDRE FUENTES… Down Under!

Published on 20th Aug, 2008

AndreAndre Fuentes has been a dancer and choreographer for most of his life. Having danced with Britney Spears for most of her career Andre has certainly had some amazing experiences. He will be coming to Sydney in September to Judge the Hollywood Dance Competition as well as teaching workshops for Source Dance. DanceLife caught up with Andre to chat about his upcoming visit to the land of Oz.

You have been coming out to Australia for a few years now. Tell us what we can expect from your visit this time around when you teach the masterclasses at the Source Dance Workshops.
The students at the Source Dance workshops can expect an intense program that will stimulate their minds, bodies and souls.

Do you think your style as a choreographer has changed over the years?
My style changes every day. I get my inspiration from excellent dancers that can bring something to offer from within.

Many dancers will be flocking to the Source Dance workshops throughout September. For some, two full days of dancing isn’t what they’re use to. What tips can you give to these dancers when packing their lunch boxes and accessory bag?

Bring lots of Tim Tams for me!! Haha, just joking. No, really it’s important to have lots of H2O!!
You are continually travelling around the US and to other countries. How do you cope with being away from family, friends and loved ones so often?

It’s part of this business and the people I care for so much realise that my job takes me away a lot but they know what I’m doing makes people happy and that makes myself happy too!!
What makes a great dance teacher and why do you enjoy teaching so much?
Patience and motivation makes a great teacher and I enjoy teaching because it’s only for that I give back what the great teachers before me gave so dance can grow and continue their education.

Watch Andre’s choreography to Believe below. He will be teaching at the Source Workshops throughout Australia during September. Along with Andre, Ticker Barkley, Christopher Michael Jones and Tony Czar will be teaching all the latest moves from the USA. A limited amount of places are still available for the workshops.
