I have ADD and as a kid I was often very hyper. I started taking dance classes at the age of four because it was a way for me to use up my extra energy while simultaneously having a ton of fun. I found that I really enjoyed dancing and I never stopped. I have taken ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and even ballroom. I performed in many dance recitals as a kid. I am also a big theater geek. In high school I joined the theater club and got myself into the Thespian sosiety. I went to a sleepaway camp for special needs children four summers in a row. Every summer they put on a musical and I was always in it. I never had a very big part but it didn't really matter just being a part of it was fun for me. When we auditioned they would always ask us what we would like to do for the show (i.e. acting, singing, dancing , playing a certain instrument). I generally said that I would be happy with any part I was given but I would prefer to be on stage instead of behind the scenes. One year they were doing King and I. I decided to give my usual response but I also mentioned the fact that I danced. They created a special part "king's royal court performers" and there were nine or ten of us but I got to work with another girl as the leads of the group. I got a mini solo in the middle of one of the group performances and she got a whole song solo. She was definately better then me. Then when I went to my first college I was on the dance team. That was a lot of fun. I was pretty impressed with the solo I coreographed for my audition since it was definatly a little different. Currently I take ballroom classes at my current school with my boyfriend. At the end of each semester there is a ball and we have done some interesting performances. We did a swing, a hustle, a chacha and our next performance will be a waltz.
Sorry for rambling sometimes it's hard to shut me up once I start talking. I also hope I didn't get too far off topic.
