Paula Abdul: Dancing Success Takes Legs…And Guts

paula_abdul-bdirect_22510r2_dj1_copy_hires2The FOX hit dance competition show So You Think You Can Dance heads into its live shows tonight as the top 20 dancers perform. The show has altered the careers of many performers as many of the dancers have gone off to great professional careers.

Part of the equation in having a successful career in the performing arts lies in one’s own grit and determination. Judge Paula Abdul, a former dancer who also flourished as a choreographer, understands that talent may get a person in the door, but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Paula Abdul explains that dancers make their own breaks through hard work.

Whether one lands an audition or is rejected, the key is to keep moving forward with a laser like focus. Having branched out as a successful singer and a beloved judge on American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance is proof that Abdul remains driven to succeed.
