For the rest of my life I would love to be a dancer. Imagine an artist painting the most vivid moving and swaying figure on the crispest canvas. Every stroke of the brush signifies the movement of the dancer’s body. As a dancer, our bodies create a picture that corresponds to the emotions of the music. In a dark room, the dancer is the light. On the dark stage, the dancer is the light on the stage. I want nothing more than to shine through any darkness as I dance. If I could spend eve most vivid every day of my life creating a painter’s most vivid imagine I would. As a dancer I want to unleash the creativity within myself and within others. I believe dancers have the same power as a novel to transport an active mind into another dimension. For the rest of my life I would be that escape. Whether I dance to a little jazz or some classical I will be the light on the stage. Even if it’s hip-hop or modern, I will be the light on the stage. No matter if the style is tap or African, I can still be the light on the stage. I just want to dance.
