“I think dance is great way to boost happiness and to inspire communities.”
How does dance have a positive impact on your life?
“Dance has taught me positive impacts such as commitment, loyalty, leadership, teamwork, growth, and how to motivate myself every day. Whenever I am dancing, whether in a studio, on a stage, or in my living room, I am in my happy place. Dance has been a huge part of my life since I was two and a half years old. For me, it feels like it is the only way I can let out all my emotions without a care in the world.”
How do you want to use dance to make a positive influence on your community?
“I think dance is a great way to boost happiness and to inspire communities.
I have a dance Instagram which I post about my latest accomplishments. In my posts, I always try to remind others that they are amazing and that they should believe in themselves. All you need is the ability to know you can go far in life. Life is so much more than what people think or believe about you. I use my dance skills to cope with others and create strong bonds. I use dance as a way to relieve the positive and negative thoughts.”
