Untapped Dancer Story: Surrounded by Uncertainty

Brianna McInerney

Melbourne • Australia

I am and always will be forever thankful for what dancing has given me.

I don't know what I would do without dance and the people there. I have OCD and when your mind is constantly plagued by thoughts and the need to perform rituals, getting a break from your brain is rare. When I dance I am free from all my anxieties and it is the only time in which I am OCD free and able to move without being surrounded by uncertainty and the demand for perfection. The people I dance with are the most amazing people in the world. They are my family and I wouldn't change that for the world. They mean more to me than anything and I am so blessed to have been provided the opportunity to dance, meet these beautiful people and have an outlet to express myself. I am and always will be forever thankful for what dancing has given me.
