Why do you dance?
In college it’s easy to become swept up in focusing on your own future, your own problems, your own goals; I dance to turn the focus to others and help these families have a better today and a more hopeful tomorrow.
Advice for first time dancers?
Have fun and give it your all! If you are determined to be negative and focus on how tired or inconvenienced you are, then you will not enjoy your experience, but if you do your best to stay positive and focus on the inspiration that is these children then it can be a truly amazing and fulfilling experience. And remember, YOU are making a difference!
