“[My studio’s] positive impact to our community is [we] never stop doing what [we] love. With amazing people around you, anything is possible.”
How does dance have a positive impact on your life?
Such a big impact, when I dance nothing else matters. I feel so happy to do what I love. My dance teachers are the best role models I could ask for.
How do you want to use dance to be a positive influence on your community?
Because after Hurricane Ida ruined our studio we never let [it] come between us or stop [us]. We all stayed in touch and was positive for one another and will be relocating to continue doing what we love. Our positive impact to our community is [we] never stop doing what [we] love. With amazing people around you, anything is possible
