I see my dance journey in three distinct portions. The first ten years taught me how to love dance. The next two taught me specific skills that I would need like flexibility, turning, and jumping. The last five years which were spent at A Time To Dance, taught me how to refine. I was able to take my love for dance and the things I had learned, and become an artist. I not only learned what it meant to become an artist, but how much time and effort it takes to get there. Most weeks I would spend between 15 and 20 hours at the studio learning choreography, strengthening my core, and working on my technique. Although I would come home exhausted, there is nothing I would rather do, and no way I’d rather feel at the end of the day. Right know I don’t know where my dance training will take me, but I do know how to work hard towards a goal and how good it feels to achieve it.
