Jade Turner is an 18-year-old dancer from Logan, Utah. She dances independently.

 “Dance let’s me express myself in ways that I couldn’t even imagine to be able to put into words…You can’t live without air; I can’t live without dance.”

How does dance have a positive impact on your life?

Dance lets me express myself in ways that I couldn’t even imagine to be able to put into words. It also has brought me so much joy to watch the kids that I teach dance to grow and get better. You can’t live without air; I can’t live without dance.

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

I want to show that EVERYONE can dance and bring body positivity into dance because, as a dancer, it is so hard to love your body, and I also want to show how dance can save lives, dance has been the best therapy for me and hopefully I can show someone else the same!
