My Passion

“When I found dance, I found self-expression. Until the age of nine, I was an only child that was never used to having to express my feelings because I was content with being alone. Once I began to develop real emotions, I never knew how to express myself and often found myself angry or irritated. Dance is my form of release. It taught me self-expression as well as discipline. When I feel like nobody understands me or where I'm coming from, I feel like dancing allows me to be heard. Do what you're passionate about!”
