Dance is an amazing frontier filled with many different personalities, strengths and weaknesses, styles...you name it. As dancers, we must learn to push our bodies harder and longer than we ever thought they were capable of. It teaches us discipline, determination, and grace. In order to challenge yourself and push the boundaries of your comfort zone, you must not let fear put limitations on your abilities.
Fear tells you that you are not capable or that you will never be capable. If you love to dance, then dance. The wonderful thing about the 21st century is that dance has evolved so much in order for all of us to have a chance to pursue this beautiful art form. It doesn't matter what you look like or how much training you have had. Dance is dance. It is beautiful and allows you to express yourself in new and relatable ways.
Today I encourage you to try something new and to pursue your dreams. To challenge yourself to venture outside of your comfort zone. Test your limits and don't let fear stand in your way! Don't forget to always have fun. I believe in you...
