phrase that inspires you: b.ambitious
Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams. Set goals for yourself and don’t stop until you achieve them. Take risks and step outside of your comfort zone because you never know what you are truly capable of until you try new things. Be determined to make the most out of every class and performance, and remember that with hard work and dedication you can achieve anything. Your only limit is your you.
what inspired you to start dancing?
At the age of three, my parents enrolled me in dance classes so that I could make friends. I was constantly dancing around the house and always had a strong love for music, so my parents found the nearest dance studio to sign me up.
what keeps you motivated?
What motivates me the most is seeing what hard work and dedication can do. You have to be able to recognize what you need to work on and set goals based on what you want to achieve. There is always something to work on and improve to better yourself. Being able to look back and see how far you have come is an incredible feeling.
