teach me your ways

Maxwell Beaumont in black-and-white. This took about thirty minutes of me scrolling through Xavier Serrano’s photoshoots, and another three hours to actually draw it.

Michael Dameski appreciation post.

why does nobody talk about how phenomenally talented this kid is ???

he went to an open audition for Billy Elliot, with no dance training whatsoever, but after seeing his acro skills, he was offered the role of Billy which he played in the Australian production, and the Broadway production, as well as the second North American tour across the span of 2.5 years. he was a Green Room Award winner in 2008 and an Australian Dance Award recipient in 2009 for his shared role.

between his incredible natural talent and intense billy camp, he quickly made a name for himself in the dance world. he made an appearance on Young Talent Time in 2012 as a guest competitor, winning his round. and went on to win the So You Think You Can Dance title of Australia’s Favorite Dancer in 2014.

shortly after another open audition, in summer of 2014 he landed the role of Tommy Boy in the first national tour of Newsies. though Michael may not get the same recognition that a lot of his cast mates do. I have to say that he may be one of the most naturally gifted dancers I’ve every had the privilege of watching.

I will never get over the feeling I get when watching Michael dance. he gets so incredibly invested in the story he’s telling. he manages to display such power and strength while seemingly floating across the stage.


MICHAEL DAMESKI I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE ADMIRED AND LOVED. AND I WILL NOT LET YOUR TALENT GO UNNOTICED.
