Dancing has helped me break through my fears and anxiety. The second effect of being involved in dance is I have created amazing long lasting friendships.

Every year, I am introduced to new dancers in each of my classes. I enjoy meeting new dancers so I can experience their unique talents and abilities. When I observe others, I find ways to improve my own dancing skills. I love spending my free time at my dance studio because I love interacting with the friends I have made. I have attended many dance workshops and conventions where I have met many dancers. I enjoy talking to people from other studios about dance and the effects dance has had on their lives. A few years ago, at a dance workshop, I met a girl named Janessa. Janessa and I bonded over our passion for dance and we continue to communicate over social media. I have been in many dance routines with the same group of girls. This has caused us to create a great relationship. The best memory I have with this group of girls is at one of our dance competitions. Our teacher had been really tough all year and we had all worked extremely hard. At our first competition, we were really confident and performed well on the stage. When we exited the stage we immediately formed a giant group hug. We were all so proud of ourselves and our teammates for doing so well on stage. I am glad to know that I have such a great group of friends that will be there for me no matter what

    Intro If you have experienced what it’s like to dance on stage, you know that it’s the best feeling in the world. I chose to do my poems on dance because I have a passion for dance and it is what I love to do. When I’m on stage at a performance it is an amazing feeling because I am completely focused.
