“I want to use dance to bring a smile to people’s faces. Dance not only entertains, but it brings people together and helps them spread happiness.”
Dance has positively impacted my life in many ways. It has allowed me to meet new people and make lifelong friends. I have also grown more confident in myself and my abilities because of it. Lastly, it has provided me [with] a space to truly be myself. I can express feelings I would not know how to express through words, and I can escape the daily stress of work and school. Dance has helped me become the person I am today.
I want to use dance to bring a smile to people’s faces. Especially in today’s world, everyone needs a reminder that there is beauty and happiness within life, and I believe dance can prove this. During Christmas time, we usually perform at nursing homes and it makes me so happy to see them [smiling] and happy during the winter season. Dance not only entertains, but it brings people together and helps them spread happiness.
