Ultimate Dance Competition judge


Rak will appear with long-time friend Miller and returning judge Richy Jackson for the second season of Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. On her judging method:

Abby has her way to tell them, and I have mine. You have to have balance … you have to give them hope. They don’t want to walk out the door and feel shattered; that’s not what it’s about. It’s about trying to inspire, to help them define their path. There is nothing worse for a child than the fear that someone will pound them and tell them ‘you’re horrible.’ That doesn’t work for me. That’s where Abby and I come from two different worlds. I respect the fact that she is a teacher and that’s how she works. [But] that’s not how I work.
