Dancing has always been my passion. It sucks the stress out of me and it lightens my heart to jive with the beat and dance my heart out. Other than writing, this has been my way of expressing myself and letting out my frustrations. I dance when i’m happy and i dance when i’m sad. This has been my comfort zone. Every step has a meaning, and every routine has a story.
I have started dancing when i was 5. I started with the cultural dances and as i grew up, i have opened my eyes, widened my perspective and explored the beautiful world of dance. I discovered a lot of styles that i never knew i’d be able to relate to. I stared learning and later on came to embrace it. With this I have found where I belong, a taste of ecstasy and thrill whenever I am on stage.
The feeling of performing is so heartwarming. Seeing the people smile while we dance just gives me joy. The sweat and tiring practices are so much worth it. True, as a dancer you don’t get that much benefit but it makes us healthy! And happy! This year I have met this beautiful family of mine, this lineup full of witty, intimidating but oh so talented girls and had the opportunity to compete for regionals with them. There were struggles during the training yet we settled our differences and conquered the stage. We made it through nationals! Yay! I’m so glad I met them they made me so happy. I didn’t only find friends and dance buddies, but I found a family.
