For WOD LA. We’ve been working so hard and my whole body has never been so sore in my life. I’m so excited to perform our set and the finished product is going to be crazy. Six more sleeps!! And I can’t wait to reunite with Skool District and meet all the other Academys!
No one ever fully understands the passion dancers have for dance. We get questions like “why do you love it so much” “it doesn’t get you anywhere” “how is that going to get you a future” I’m tired of that. I can definitely relate to half of the dancers in the community regarding unsupportive parents. They don’t understand how much dance means to us. I’d rather be out till 3 in the morning dancing with my team than out partying getting drunk. And that’s my next point, dance has definitely saved my life. I feel like if dance wasn’t in my life it wouldn’t give me any motivation to fix my life or go to school. I may have slipped and done something wrong but I’m constantly going back to dance. I just want it more. I love it. What they don’t understand is that feeling you get when you’re on stage for 6 minutes dancing your heart out. All those months of hard work dedicated to those 6 minutes feels so damn amazing. That feeling, is irreplaceable. It’s a feeling I love. I just wish they would see that. I’ve never been so happy in my life inside that studio, hearing the music, and dancing. I have put all my heart and soul to this art and no one understands how passionate I am. Dancing may not pay me money, but it pays me happiness. I guess my advice to dancers with my situation is to do what you love but don’t forget your education as well. If I can juggle both you can too. I can go on and on about how I feel but I’m off to another day of rehearsal. Just a little part of how I feel..
