Through dance I am able to express how happy my soul is. Even during my darkest moments the beat of the music takes my body to a magical world. When I dance, I am free. My face begins to tell a story with no words, as my body follows. To be able to translate such a feeling to an audience is true art from the heart. To teach this art form to the youth is so fulfilling. Whether they follow the music or follow their own beat, to be a Dance Teacher Assistant & see the students allow their bodies to become as free week by week is truly heartwarming and priceless.

When I first started taking dance classes I was only there because my mother enrolled me. Honestly I did not know how to dance, I barely even knew the macarana. But as the years progressed I’ve been taught not only how to dance, but how to be more confident. Dance has positively affected my life, making me appreciate it being a constant. I love to dance and the art of it because it is able to tell a story, and when I dance it reflects parts of my story. Dance has helped me break out of my shell. I went from a shy, quiet girl to a motivated young leader. I also love to dance because it is entertaining and no matter what shape or size you are, anyone is able to take part and join in. I believe it’s slowly connecting the world, bringing us together. With this guiding my passion of doing what I love. I enjoy teaching dance because I like making people happy, and by giving people the opportunity to do something that will make their life memorable makes my day brighter. At X-Dance with the variety of children and young adults who come to learn, each and everyone of them have a unique quality. Yet, when they are placed in a space where they are all set to learn the same choreography, each individual reveals something different. This makes me love teaching and dancing even more because, it unites and it has no limit to the self-expression felt and shown through our body movements.

    Dancing is my passion. When I dance nothing else matters my problems, worries, and stress goes away. I've been dancing for 10 years and I've enjoyed every moment of it. Dancing show my artistic side. Dancing motivates me to push myself to do better. When I am dancing it allows me to be myself, it allows me to express who I am. Teaching in my opinion is one of the best things to carry out. I enjoy seeing the students grow and fulfill what they have learned. I never have any doubt in my mind that each kid can do anything as long as they set their mind to it.  Work hard, dream big, stay focused and be the best dancer you can be.

Dance is a way to show the world who we truly are and who we can be. All of us, if we are honest, believe deep

down that we are not ordinary. At Xdance we open up and know ourselves to be wonderfully unique, with many

layers of personality and talent in such a way that no one on earth could possibly change our love for dance and we

know it. Why do we love to dance? It’s simple every answer will be different, and that is how it should be. Perhaps

the better question is, “Why would we not love to dance?” Dance is the key to the soul and the rhythm to our

happiness. It makes us who we are and who we want to be. The best part teaching at XDance is literally anyone can

do it. With the right teachers, it’s fun and easy to do. Literally the hardest part is taking that first step… to pick up

the phone, to walk inside a dance studio. Once you take those first steps, the steps on the dance floor are as easy as a

breath of fresh air.
