If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be dancing. I would set up free dance studios around the world. They would be open to all and serve all age groups. It would be more than dance; it would be shelter for those in need. It would change the world because it would provide free dance classes and training for those less fortunate. I grew up dancing but was forced to stop because I was told it was unrealistic. I was told I would not be able to make a living by dancing. I started dancing in fourth grade. My elementary school had these special classes called 4 and 5 PAC. You had to audition to get it. I did and made it both years. I then started performing in after school programs. I attended, Bronx Dance Academy for middle school, where dance was my major. During high school is when I was forced to give dancing up. If I could, I would go back train under the best dancers, and then open up my own dance centers, catering to all dance styles. I would find investors and would run it with my family. I would sell and repair dance clothes there. And in the back, I would provide beds. It would be open 24/7. Most importantly I would show that dance can be a main source of income because what’s money if you do not enjoy what you do?
