“Dance is the most positive impact on my life…I have found my happiest place dancing and performing.”
How does dance have a positive impact on your life?
Dance is the most positive impact on my life. Not only have I learned technique, discipline, and character, I have learned how to educate younger dancers as well. I have found my happiest place dancing and performing.
How do you want to use dance to be a positive influence on your community?
I want dance to be a positive influence because it teaches so much more than competing. I have found my greatest joy, gaining self-confidence and motivation. Dance is such an inspiring art, and I hope more people can view dance just as positively.
