The Queen of the Dancefloor Maja Salvador extends her expertise by serving as one of the judges of the Kapamilya show World of Dance Philippines. She wouldn’t be hailed a royalty if she lacks wisdom and talent but other spectators still voice out their doubts. For some, Maja doesn’t deserve her seat as a jury alongside Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and international star Billy Crawford.
Nonetheless, the strong woman chooses to remain dedma on her bashers’ negative comments. With humility, Maja admits that even she has once questioned her qualifications as well. “Ako? Bakit?”, was her initial reaction when she found out about the offer to be part of World of Dance Philippines.
Yet, her mentors and superiors encouraged her to accept the project; rubbing in her 15 years of experience on the ASAP stage. During that time when insecurity and self-doubt were filling her mind, Maja travelled back to her humble beginnings. She imagined the moment when Ms Charo Santos talked to her and promised her entry to showbiz. Maja saw her younger self who just had nothing but dreams. The nostalgia has made Maja realized that she also wants to become an instrument in fulfilling other people’s aspirations, therefore, she grabbed the offer.
Maja simply continues to remain grateful that she gets to celebrate Filipino talent through the program. She looks forward not just to the contestants’ remarkable performances but their stories as well. As a judge, she meticulously examines the performers’ soul; saying a dancing champion must have the perfect combination of moves and passion.
Indeed, her majesty has gone a long way – from being a newbie to becoming one of the industry’s most treasured gems. Maja looks back on her journey with modesty; saying she also had to go through rigorous trainings to hone her potentials.
