How does dance have a positive impact on your life?
Dance is about failures and success. It is the hard times, when I struggle with choreography, emotion or technique, that I try harder. I have faced challenges that hurt but took those moments and came out stronger. I can always look back to see where I was and how far I have come.
How do you want to use dance to have a positive influence on your community?
Dance is a form of art, art that is always changing and growing. In dance, we are able to share space, place, and experiences. The ability to be inspired by others or be the inspiration to some.
