Dance has shown me no matter how many hard times you have and how many times you get knocked down you get up and keep going. I have danced for close to 10 years. Dance shows me that i have more in me than i know. I always amaze my self at what i accomplish in dance. Dance has helped me over come many hard things. The worst thing i have faced is my great grandfathers sickness and eventually death. Dance was there through my grief i turned it into something beautiful. Every time i step onto a stage to compete and perform or a floor to teach i remember that this is for him. I teach younger kids i show them that dance is a fun thing, that its a healthy way to cope with anything from bullying to death. I hope dance helps others as it does me.
