“Dance in my community (and other communities) can build a stronger, healthier, and happier community.”
Dance has helped me express my emotions through movement. It helps me escape reality and focus on the positives.
I want to use dance as a positive influence to my community by showing that dance develops strong social bonds (i have been friends with some of my dance friends since we were 8 years old), it is a safe place for children to be, and the people that train in dance tend to become healthier and happier. Dance in my community (and other communities) can build a stronger, healthier, and happier community.
