If I could earn a living from doing something that I love the most it would be dancing. When I was younger, I always wanted to start dance but never could; I was always told that this special thing that I wanted to do was for girls, so I never got to do what I liked the most. Now with this talent that I have, there are some odds that are against me. Some of those odds are that I am short haven’t been dancing as long as others, but what I do have is the drive and heart for what I am doing. With this talent, I could change the world in different ways. I want to help other short male dancers know that with dedication and hard work you can make it in this field of study. I want them to know that no matter what people say, you can come out on top. Now there are some goals that I am going to set to make this dream a reality. Some of my goals are to take dance classes while I am in college, because I believe if you really want something in life than you must work hard for it. I am going to do summer dance intensives so that I can see how other choreographers set pieces and how they teach. Lastly, I will audition for different dance companies so I can become a professional dancer.
