Story

I had to over come a lot of obstacles to be the dancer I am today. For example I started dancing when I was 8 or 9. But then I have stopped because everyone would make fun of me because of my weight.Then I started dancing when I was 14 and I kept going since then. From there I never cared what people said about my weight. I did whatever my heart told me to do.

What I love about dance is that I put all my emotion into it because since I have been through a lot. Also what I love about dance is that you can meet a lot of different people. Also,Because it let's me express myself. Dance made me the person I am today.

I don't try to dance better than anybody else, I try to dance better than myself. You don't need the passion to start dancing.when you are dancing let your body do whatever it wants to do.We dance for laughter,we dance for fears,we dance for madness,we dance for tears,we dance for hopes,we dance for screams. We are DANCERS. WE CREATE THE DREAMS.DANCE like no one is WATCHING.
