    I love to dance, it's kinda like a passion.

    I love teaching people my choreography, not only that but see there faces light up when they dance.πŸ˜ƒ it's like I can express my feelings by dancing or singing it out.

    Dancing Shoes...

    Dancing has always been a part of my life, since the age of three when I got to have my first pink tutu and dance around the ballet studio with my friends. I felt like a little princess then, and the older I got, the more my interest and passion for it grew. Ballet has always...

    I've been dancing literally all my life.

    As soon as I could walk I was dancing. It's second nature to me and I love it. It's a huge part of my life and always has been. I started off doing ballet and tap and then moved on to street/ hip hop and disco freestyle. I got bored after a while and threw some ballroom and...

    It's you and the mirror.

    No one else. You're staring at yourself. Clenching your hands into fists from time to time and you smile. You know what you can do with your body. You know your body's limit and the truth is, there are no limits. You look up to the ceiling and you close your eyes. Trying to...

    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.

    How To Be A Dancer

    Your day starts at 6am. When the alarm goes off, you get up. No sleeping in. When you get up, stretch out your arms and legs. Then walk to the bathroom and take a cool shower. The cold water will stimulate you to wake you up. It'll also seal the cuticle of your hair, locking in...

    Why Do You Dance?

    I dance because dance can change things. One move can make you believe that you're something more. As some moves can give everybody some hope. Hope that we are actually special. I am a dancer πŸ’œ

    college. I really love it and don't think I can stop but with the major I want (petroleum engineering) it might not be a good idea. I have no clue what to do. I want to be a Kilgore Rangerette but that would be career suicide!! I'm so conflicted

    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.
