Waltz on the Wild Side
Event Organized by:
Two ballroom superstars from different corners of the world. Former best friends now sworn bitter rivals.
The dance I choreographed won an Emmy—but someone else claimed it.
The man I loved just got engaged—but another woman is wearing his ring.
I'm the reigning world champion ballroom dancer—but I'm not "TV material."
I'm too curvy.
I'm too short.
I'm too real.
I'm no longer hiding behind the wings. I'm no longer letting people steal my life.
I'm ready for my turn in the spotlight—no matter what the consequences.
I left my country, my home, my language, my heart.
For a chance to have a life in America—live without prejudice and pain.
For freedom, I've given my heart and soul.
Love now means nothing to me but success and security.
Until I met him—the long haired rock and roll drummer with a boyish grin.
True love and acceptance will destroy everything I've worked for.
I'm ready for my chance for happiness - no matter what the consequences.
