With his unique position, advocacating for dancers within the industry has become apart of the Dance Plug brand! Often times it can feel lonely and like there is no one on our side looking out for us. Roy is providing that support for dancers and artists across Canada with Dance Plug.
"The one thing I keep hearing is I'm meant to do this. This is my calling!"
In building this platform, he also sought out to further support dancers with useful knowledge and advice. Featuring new guest weekly on his podcast "unplugged", Roy brings information new and old right to the artists ears. This was prompted so dancers could have more tools at their disposal, other than just physical training.
Roy continues to champion the dance community even during his these eerie times of Covid19! It's been a year of firsts and learning to navigate them, but all the while he's been working to ensure dancers have what they need to get by.
