Posted October 04, 2018 12:25:59 As a dancer, you can imagine it can be a challenging job.
So why does acrobat Robert Hatton have such an amazing IQ?
That’s the question I had for myself while doing a story for the CBC’s “The Score” program about the acrobatic troupe known as “The Acrobatic Duo.”
It was my third interview with the group, and I was curious to find out how their talent translates to their jobs.
Robert, a member of the troupe for 13 years, said it’s a bit of both.
“There’s a lot of people who are good at the choreography and they do the routine, but they’re not very good at what it takes to perform it well,” he said.
The troupe is based in Toronto, Canada, but the group performs in other parts of the world as well.
“We’ve done a lot overseas,” Robert said.
“I’ve done in Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and New Zealand.
But I have to admit that the most amazing thing about doing acrobatics overseas is that it’s like doing the choreographer’s routine.
You have to be in tune and your feet are on the floor and you’re doing it in a choreographed way.
It’s just incredible.”
The Acrobats are an internationally recognized troupe and perform at international festivals like the Toronto International Festival of Dance, which Robert and his fellow dancers attended.
They perform at many major festivals, including the Toronto Film Festival, and are on tour throughout the United States.
“This is the best opportunity we have to get our international message out,” Robert told me.
“It’s not just a choreography, it’s really about a whole range of things.”
Acrobat skills are something the troupes members can learn from each other.
Robert says that they learn the most from eachother.
“The only time we get to practice together is when we go out and perform together.
We really learn from one another,” Robert explained.
The members also have a common bond.
“They really are like brothers,” Robert revealed.
“When we have a rehearsal together, it can actually be quite a challenge because they get really into it together and the things that they’re doing in a rehearsal are not the same things that we do in the real choreography.
So it can take a little bit of time to get used to each other, but we are always there.”
I also asked Robert how he and his acrobatics teammates compare to eachothers on the stage.
Robert said that while the choreographers are the best at the routine and the choreographic parts of it, it comes down to the individual members.
“As a member, the choreographist has to be the best in every way,” Robert stated.
“But the individual has to perform at a level that they are good, that they can take part in a performance.
They have to have their own energy and passion.
And they have to give it their all.”
He’s always on top of the game and he’s always pushing me to the limit.” “
My brother, I don’t want to use the wrong word.
He’s always on top of the game and he’s always pushing me to the limit.”
Robert and the trouper members said that they often compete for attention and that competition is something they both thrive on.
“To be honest, I have a really hard time with competition,” Robert admitted.
“You have to show the other person what you can do, and that’s why we are so good at it.”
And Robert says he’s proud to be able to share the choreographing with the world.
“Every time I go out, I know that I’m going to have the attention of some people, but I’m also going to do it in the best way I can.
That’s why I love it,” he stated.
As for the rest of the choreographed routines, Robert and members said they use them as a springboard to perform in the street and in other theatres.
“In the streets, it becomes really easy for me to perform.
It takes practice and it takes practice with my feet and with my body and with your mind,” Robert confessed.
“Sometimes when we’re rehearsing, it gets really boring, but when you actually perform it, you’ll get really excited,” Robert added.
“And the rest, it goes very smoothly.
It makes me happy.”
Robert’s performance is a tribute to his mother.
“She always taught me to be strong and to do things the way she wanted.
She taught me that you’re not always going to be perfect, but you have to go for it and do it every day,” Robert recalled.
“Even when I’m not feeling well, she always told me to go and see what she wanted me to do, because I could never go back.
I have this confidence that when I perform, she’s going to
