“The dance is over, the applause subsided, but the joy and feeling will stay with you forever” (W.M. Tory).
Dancing began as merely a hobby for me. It was an easy A in middle school. But in high school and most recently in college, dance became a necessity. The lines between dancing and happiness became blurred until dancing morphed into an action of pure joy for me.
Therefore, if I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would dance. I have discovered that my movement is bigger than my words; that what I have to dance is just as, if not more, important than what I have to say. In this aspect, dancing is an emotional release that I have never experienced before. Furthermore, when I dance other people can understand what I am expressing as well. I could change the world with dancing by inviting others feel and experience my messages. I want to inspire people like other artists have inspired me, and dare artists to be bold in their creative expressions.
To achieve my dream, I would study various forms of dance both at my college and dance studio including advanced ballet, jazz, contemporary, and hip-hop. I would become versatile in the field so I could become a more seasoned artist. Lastly, and most importantly, I would look for inspiration to stimulate my creativity, because there is almost nothing I love more than the lasting joy that comes from leaving my heart of the stage.
