Dance gives me comfort and is my safety yet it forces me to stretch and work in situations that are beyond my comfort zone. I am constantly put into situations that push me and challenge me. Through these circumstances, I realize my potential as a dancer and as an individual outside of the studio. This industry has provided me with a genuine community of like-minded artists. The relationships I foster motivate me to get better at my craft and discover where I belong in the industry. Dance has given me a purpose. I am able to discover purposes in my choices of movement and an overall purpose of living a life to fulfill God’s plan for me with the talents he has blessed me with. I use these talents and gifts to impact and help others who are in this same journey of life.
