Advice for first time dancers?
In the early hours of the morning, you’ll want to quit. Just know that we’ve all been there and that you are not alone! Think of the kids and the fight they have to put up every day of their lives. Our discomfort pales in comparison to what they have to go through! The kids are our heroes. Be theirs.
Favorite raiseRED memory? 
My favorite RaiseRED memory is seeing the numbers flipped at the end of the dance marathon my first year as a dancer! The excitement of beating your goal is exhilarating!
