“I would love to help others find the same energy, love, and postivity from dance.”

How does dance have a positive impact on your life?

Dance has always been there for me. When I am sad, stressed, nervous, scared, content, happy, or excited, it is always there for me to express my emotions. It is an outlet of the way I feel. Dance helps me stay active and healthy. It makes my body stronger and my mind a little sharper. Dance also creates this energy in the room that is special and unlike anything else. It brings together friends and helps to make magical moments.

How do you want to use dance to be a positive influence on your community?

I would love to help others find the same energy, love, and positivity from dance. I enjoy being a student teacher and sharing what I have learned through the years with other younger dancers. I would also love to someday use my skills to help those with special needs explore movement with music.
