She Danced

“I have been dancing since I was girl. I remember my mom started me when I was in kindergarten. I was good at it and ended up really enjoying it because I could express myself. My senior year in high school I was given a full-ride to Centenary College of Louisiana and planned on majoring in dance, but when I graduated they got rid of their dance program. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do besides dance. However, Louisiana State University Shreveport, was starting a dance team so I decided to go there even though I didn’t have any scholarships there and had to pay tuition myself, but I danced there for fours until I graduated. Afterwards and I got a job I couldn’t really find anywhere I could dance. There were studios, but I would have had to pay a decent amount of money to dance there. Now sadly I just don’t dance anymore. I think if I ever have children that would encourage them to dance as well.”
