“Not only does dance provide me with amazing performance opportunities but it also gives me a family!”
How does dance have a positive impact on your life?
Dancing is not just a hobby of mine, but it’s my passion! It has helped my confidence grow, and there’s no better feeling then when you walk off the stage and know you did your best. Not only does dance provide me with amazing performance opportunities but it also gives me a family! Some of my best friends and memories are made at dance, and I would never trade them for anything!
How do you want to use dance to have a positive influence on your community?
I would use dance to provide entertainment and happiness in the community! Especially with how the world has so quickly changed in 2020, there is nothing I want more than to bring positivity and to brighten everyone’s day! I love posting upbeat and fun dance videos on my social medias, and I am such a social butterfly at conventions and competitions because, after all, we’re all there to have fun, learn, and enjoy ourselves.
