It was a great and memorable experience being part of Team Canada to join the prestigious event of World Championships of Performing Arts Hollywood California of July 2014.  And was such wonderful privilege for being part of the most incredibly bright, knowledgeable and very supportive mentor, WCOPA National Director of Canada, Belinda Reyes.

Belinda Reyes is brimming with the brains to help everything she can for her Team.  She is very efficient, organized, reliable, helpful and knowledgeable.  Every question possible, she go the answers, anytime of the day or night for that matter (I really don’t know how she does it!:) Because of her knowledge suggestions, ideas and guidance, and through consistent and positive feedback and encouragement, Isaac gained the confidence to walk into that stage with enthusiasm and confidence.  And because of that, Isaac achieved and received prestigious medals for all our of 4 of his 4 Vocal Solo entries:  Gold in Broadway, Gold in Gospel, Gold in R&B,/Soul/Jazz and silver in Open and 3 Champion of the World DIVISION WINNER for age 11-15 in Broadway, Gospel and R&B/Soul/Jazz categories at the “18th Annual World Championships of Performing Arts 2014”  That experience will truly forever be remembered but most of all we will truly treasure finding a new kind of friend and that is Belinda Reyes.  You have such a great personable and have a lot of integrity.  Having known you for just a short period of time, I can say you are one of the best.  Up until now you still believe and are thinking of Isaac and we are greatly thankful for that. We thank the Lord for blessing us another wonderful person in our life.  God bless you Belinda!!! Wishing you all the blessings, success, good health, happiness, joy, peace and love!

    "...When he was 6 years old he entered in his first dance competition the Australian Dance Idol, making the top 10 without any formal training. After that he started training at Glenda Yee School of Dance where he stayed until the decision to move over to Brent Street Studios where he was given the opportunity to represent Australia in the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in Los Angeles, and received gold in each category he entered and overall Junior World Dancer. After WCOPA in 2013 he won the prestigious Australian Dancer of the Year title at the Showcase Australian Dance Championships."
