“Dance can bring communities together from different backgrounds, races, and different places around the world. Dance is a language we all can share.”
When I dance I feel unique and dance gives me the ability to build confidence to be amazing in other areas of my life. Dance has been a positive impact over my life and it helps me forget all the negative things that has come my way.
I want to use dance to influence more people. Dance can also bring communities together from from different backgrounds, races and different places around the world. Dance is a language we all can share.
