Someone said something to me at Camp Hollywood XX that stuck with me. That Hilary Alexander, the founder and chief organizer, wants to see something that makes her go “hell, yeah.” Whether it’s true to not is a different story. Regardless, I have seen this attitude permeate throughout each Camp Hollywood I attend.
Whether it’s the innovative aerials, routines that make me go “only at Camp Hollywood” with a happy smile on my face, people dressing to extreme lengths for theme nights, the fantastic music, or my joke that you need to throw the kaye flip during strictly prelims to make finals, you see this amazing spirit. Even new competitors know they need to throw down. It also helps there is an amazing crowd showering you with support because they also want to see something that makes them go “hell, yeah!”
Great events start from the top.
