CAN WE MEET YOU ?
My name is Juliet Ugwoeje
I hail from Abia State
I was born in Lagos,on the 3rd of January.
I am a dance instructor
I am a Christian
CAN YOU GIVE US A PEEP INTO YOUR BACKGROUND?
I attended Alausa Nursery and Primary School ,I left there 1997 to St Peter’s (Ang) Pry School,where I completed my primary school education in the year, 2000.
Completed my secondary School education in Oregun High School,2006.
Then went to the University of Lagos,Akoka to study Linguistics. Which I completed the study in 2012.
Did a professional course in Customer Relationship Management (CRM), (ICRM Certified) in 2013.
Had my basic Presentation at National Broadcast Academy,2016
Masterclass on Effective English Communication,2019.
ARGUABLY YOU ARE ONE OF THE LEADING DANCE INSTRUCTORS IN NIGERIA,WHEN DID YOU SET UP YOUR DANCE SCHOOL?
I set up the dance school on the 6th of February,2017.
I set it up because I discovered that the 1 hr schools allocated for it as extra curriculum activity wasn’t enough. I discovered that the children weren’t getting enough . It’s not just a dance ,it’s also educational . And they weren’t getting the educational part of it because of the short time given to it by the school(s).
So,I have the urge to bring out the best in every child through ballet,I want them to be distinguished through the dance called Ballet,I want to help in their development by making them stand tall wherever they find themselves.
HOW WILL YOU DESCRIBE THE EXPERIENCE SINCE YOU SET IT UP?
Yes,I will say it’s been a great experience.
One of the most important lessons being a dance instructor has taught me is that if you worked hard,practiced hard,and gave it your all,the satisfaction of performing at the BEST of your ability is more valuable than any number of first place trophies .
Another experience is that,being a dance instructor,has taught me is to be disciplined and have self control. How to tolerate people and manage people .
TO EVERY GLORY IS A STORY TO TELL, WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES AND HOW HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO OVERCOME THEM?
Hmmmmmm! One of the utmost challenges,was that of acceptance. It took some people time to accept the dream,and even when they did,it’s in doubt.
The challenge of getting people to bring their children to the dance school and the challenge of space .
I have been able to overcome them,which I am still overcoming by not Giving Up.
WHAT STANDS OUT YOUR DANCE SCHOOL FROM OTHERS?
Ultrabest Dance School is different from others because our mission is to nurture,train and educate exceptional young dancers for the future. And to inspire the future of ballet training in Nigeria.
YOU ORGANIZED AN EVENT RECENTLY,CAN YOU SHED MORE LIGHT ON IT?
Yes,that’s IsDANC (Inter-school Dance Competition)2019.
I organized the event to challenge my ballerinas and other ballerinas.
Because most of them thought they have gotten to the peak of it . AlSo to appraise them. I organized it for friendship sake,for them to make new friends, to know other ballerinas.
I organized it to give the children stage experience,to expose them to other influences . To teach them how to be graceful on stage . To teach them teamwork. To drive their standards up and to challenge them to perfect their routines.
