My parents often tell me to pursue a career that I am passionate about in life. My career goal is to own my own business. As I reflect on my life, I’ve concluded that I can spend the rest of my life teaching challenged youth dancing skills. I enjoy teaching this art form. Challenged youth across the nation can’t have an influential impact in the dancing world because they’re often overlooked. The treasure could be in the overlooked trash left behind.
Dancing is an expression of art which some people have to learn, it doesn’t come naturally. I would like to take expressive art and share it with challenged youth. I want to use dancing as therapy, a healing for the mind, body, and the soul. This art allows a person to take their inner feelings and express them with movements of their body. Challenged youth are special; it’s not easy to communicate certain feelings or thoughts, using words can be awkward for them. However, I believe a life can be changed through the art of dance. I‘d also like to change how dance is viewed through the eyes of critics. The JRW changed baseball across the country and it will soon change the world along with history. Our world could change more in a positive way when this art form gets presented to abused or mentally challenged children. It’s an art that speaks all languages. Dance will speak for their life stories that the world will never hear them say.
