Perfection

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

I live for it

I live for dance. It's a way to express yourself and free yourself from any problems you may have. People told me I wouldn't do it and I wouldn't make it and I did. If anybody tells you can't make a career out of dancing, they're dead wrong.

To Live

I dance to stay strong and keep from breaking. I am 13 and sometimes it seems like my world is crashing down. I have issues with my family and friends. When I dance I feel like I am free and I can do anything. I dance for perfection. I want to inspire others to do what they think is impossible. I have had many injuries like tendonitis and upper hamstring pain. I push through it and don't give up. By giving up you show your not capable of everything in your life. People always ask me how I am so skinny when I eat so much. I respond "I dance". If you dance and people tell you its not a sport they are right. But it is way harder than anything they will ever have to do. Dance to inspire people and show them how talented you are. Always believe in yourself and work hard and you will always be the best you can be. Never regret and don't give up.

Something Special

There is a freedom that comes with dance. A beauty...a love or anger. Whatever emotion you may have you can fully express using every single part of your body.

I'm flying

I dance because when I'm dancing, I'm flying. Listen to the song from Billy Elliott, Electricity. It describes dancing perfectly..."and suddenly I'm flying, flying like a bird, like electricity."
