I love making new friends at dance conventions! For the longest time I was the only one from my studio in my age group. So at conventions I didn’t know anyone in my classes. In the beginning, I was quiet and shy, but then I realized I needed to get out of my comfort zone and meet new people! I love that at a lot of conventions you have to couple up and find a partner, that really helped meeting new friends. I would always find someone who also didn’t know anyone in the room and would introduce myself to them. Instantly, I made a new friend and we would hang out all weekend. It was the best during the summer conventions when we would travel to a different state. You meet a lot of new people from all over the world. I still talk to many now that I met years ago. We meet up every year when we go to nationals. It’s so much fun!
