I have been dancing competitively for 6 years. I think it is always important to remind each other why we put all the time, sweat and tears into Dance. I love to dance because of the freedom it gives me within the movement. For me it is the joy of learning something new and being able to put it into practice each time I go and take a class. I have learned so much about myself and how to pursue my goals from dancing. When I am at a big competition, and I am competing with friends from many different cities and places, I love watching how good everyone is and how hard everyone works. It is very motivating.
I love to go to conventions. I love all of the friends I have made over the past couple of years. It is so cool to go to a new city and see friends from different states and just enjoy hanging out and dancing together. The teachers at conventions are always so good at what they do. They all bring a different style and flare to the classes and I love learning different things each time.
I think it is important to remember that what we are learning about the journey is just as important as the end goal. We can only compete for so long but we can continue to dance, be kind, and keep friends from these experiences for the rest of our lives! This is one reason I love Sugar and what this company stands for. It really is about creating a community of dancers who want to lift each other up and be there for each other. That is super cool!
I hope to see everyone out there, learning, smiling, and being good to each other. I hope to be an example of that this season everywhere I get to go with my team and on the circuits.
