    Why Do You Dance?

    I was never allowed to go to ballet classes.

    My mother being Muslim there was always something to say about ballet classes. No, Muslim dancing was allowed. But not ballet. I enjoyed to dance then as I enjoy to dance now. The thing is I go to ballet classes now.

    I have been dancing since I was 4.

    Dancing allows me to express myself. I love improv ! When ever I listen to any kind of music I make up some choreography in my head. Dancing is where all my dedication is and passion

    I have always been a dancer,

    I was entered in American beauty pageants at a very young age. (I'm from England) and with a dance teacher for a mother it was a talent I embraced. I love dancing and I help my mother teach it from time to time it always seems to help with confidence issues in most women.
