If I could earn a living doing what I loved most what would it be? Doing what you love most might not always be what’s best but, if I had to make a decision going along with my heart and not my mind I would love to pursue a career as a dancer. Many times others see dance as a hobby but, I see dance as an art; an art that could change and has changed many lives over the years. My role as a dancer would be one that encourages our youth to follow their passion. I would enjoy and be passionate about teaching different styles of dance to the youth. To those children that have nowhere else to turn but, find comfort in expressing their feelings through dance. My role as a dancer would be an outreach for those in need as far as finding themselves as dancers. My role as a dancer would be to help those to genuinely enjoy dancing and to follow their hearts and not their minds when it comes to this form of art. Dance was a scape goat for me as well as a way to help me express my feelings without necessarily using words. I encourage everyone to follow their heart in whatever they do but, if I wanted to have a genuine effect on the world, dance would be that change.
