Story

My whole life I was bullied, put down and hurt. I would always think about suicide and death because I just felt worthless on this planet. I used to cut myself because of the pain, I would cry myself to sleep and starve myself! My whole life I felt like a nothing but everyday I would dance and express my feelings through movement because I kept everything bottled up. Dance is a way of expressing feelings and emotions through movement, it's something that I've always been able to turn to when things were horrible. After years of abuse, dancing have me confidence to stand up for myself, speak to people and actually enjoy life. So now I dance all the time because it makes me happy, it gives my strength, courage and confidence! When I dance I feel like I'm on top of the world, I'm invincible and no one can bring me down! Dance saved my life and I will always love dance for it xx
