Why I love Dance?

I'm in the love with Dance because it shows how I feel. Dance makes me who I am and I wouldn't change that for the world! I enjoy standing in the middle of a big empty stage showing an audience what I have to express. I enjoy giving my all in a dance, even if that means sweating my ass off. I'm in love with the idea of emotional feeling and passionate dancing. Stressing is overrated, so dance it out. I promise you won't regret it♥

Why I love dance?

Why I love dance? It is a simple question to answer. Dance is good for the human body and soul. It inspires myself along with others around me. Dance gives me an amazing physical workout while I can let my emotions out and clear my head. Dancing is an escape from the real world that I have been using for 15 years of my life. It lets me forget about the people that let me down in life and lets me express my emotions about them without causing any drama. Dancing is simply amazing and something everybody should try at least once in their life. Dancing is an escape. An escape to a different world that is different for every single person. Dance is literally my heart and soul. It is all I know and will live with me forever. Why do I love dance? Because dance is me.

Why I Dance

I love the fact that there is no hierarchy in dance, no one owns dance meaning everyone has the freedom to express themselves.2) there's no right or wrong only YOU in the step 3) Its a universal language.

Why I Dance

Someone once told me, "Dance is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing. It's the rhythm of your life. It's the expression in time and movement, in happiness, joy, sadness and envy." For me it is all of that.

why I dance

To me dance is not something that can be taught to anyone. You must be born with it. It's an instinct. Idk how my body knows exactly what to do with the music but it is beautiful. I can reenact any emotion or time I want to and live in it right then with the music. It's life to me. The only thing that brings me to life.
—Guest katie


There is nothing when compared to dance when it gives you everything you want. Some people are born to dance. dance makes u feel that way :)

I'm far from a perfect dancer and human, but dance is the almost the only time I've felt something like perfection. I've only felt it a few times; on stage, after a well executed combination, when a teacher compliments me, etc... I'm going into high school in less than three weeks, but tonight I must decide if I am going to do crew, the only sport I'm interested in. If I do that, I might have so give up some of my classes. I haven't yet decided, but writing this has helped me some. Thank you
