I wasn’t always interested in dance. Fun fact, I never started dancing until after my freshman year of high school. My first time dancing was for my cousin’s sweet 16, since I was part of her court. I took dance serious just for her. After her sweet 16, I stopped being serious about dance. Now don’t get me wrong, dancing was fun, but it just wasn’t for me. My view on dance changed when I actually had to take a class for it for my art credits. It was my junior year when this happened. I never thought dance would grow onto me until I spent an entire school year dancing. It had become my stress reliever even though it also causes stress. Dance was the first thing I took serious in high school. That’s how much it meant to me. On top of that, I had an amazing dance teacher. She got our dance group to perform for the Brookyln Nets and Disney World. Both of those events are unforgettable. Sadly, I stopped dacning after my teacher quit. I plan on going back to dance when I transfer to Lehman College. Dance is a great way to express yourself, so try dancing one day.
