My passion for dance transitioned into high school and college. My role as a cheerleader in high school aided in the maintenance of my physical and mental well-being. I feel most empowered when I am performing on stage, and when I am
Dancing has also challenged me into channeling my creativity in the form of choreography. Anyone could go to a dance recital and admire the grace of a dancer's movement, but the majority do not realize the dedication and hard work that goes into bringing that to life. It takes hours upon hours of practice and patience to create a piece so beautiful that it takes the audience's breath away. Moments like those, where every muscle in your body is screaming from exhaustion and you can't seem to catch your breath, are the moments in which people would normally give up, but I've learned to push through and the end result has always been worthwhile. If dance hadn't become such a tremendous part of my life I wouldn't be the strong person and leader that I now am today. It's taught me to step up to the plate and better myself by helping others become more talented
My whole life has been of dirty mirrors, old ballet shoes, and ripped tights. I was 5 years old and a beginner at a dance academy. I didn’t quite know what dance was when I got in, I thought it was just a place to spend time in and just enjoy the music they played. Over the years I learned that dance is way more than just a hobby or a place to go when you are bored. It is art, you are the one making art. Your feelings are the story to your dance, and your moves are the music. People will see your pain or happiness through these ways. Dance is not just a hobby, it’s an art, it’s something that you don’t actually have to throw music at when the steps and feelings you add are the music to your dance.
Dance is one of the major things that defines my identity and it is an interest that had become so meaningful, that without it my application would be incomplete. This has been able to shape me throughout the years, from discipline and maturity all the way yo leadership and teamwork. I find dance as an art work, that it is easy to make mistakes and fall, you just have to learn from those mistakes and get up twice as strong as from where you started. Dance is to look above and beyond and just let everything fall into place without hesitation.
A 2017 study found that more dancers had positive changes in mood than any other sport. Not unlike a "runner's high," rhythmic movement has been shown to trigger the release of endorphins, which can boost your mood. As much of a mental exercise as a physical one, dancing keeps the mind sharp. In adolescent females, a regular dance class positively impacted their mental health. A study by the American Medical Association found that adolescent girls had more positive thoughts and felt more confidence after dancing. They reported better feelings about their overall health after participating in structured dance classes that focused on enjoying movement rather than perfection and performance
Ali explained that dancing has many benefits, such as relieving anxiety, helping with depression and self-esteem building.

Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age; but they die young. And dancing can reveal all the mystery that music conceals because dance is a song of the body, either of joy or pain. Stifling an urge to dance is bad for your health — it rusts your spirit and your hips.
Thanks to this dance I feel more of a connection when I dance with my family and I am more confident and It makes me dance a lot more than I used to. Dancing is huge in my family it makes us (in my opinion) more connected being able to laugh and spend time together just makes a difference. I have a big family +100 cousins and I always feel like I'm close to every single on them because of dancing. This class gave me a better understanding of why my family dances it really gives a connection to everyone who is dancing. Also I think everyone should take a dance class regardless if they need it for their major, I being a chemical engineering student still think it is very relevant to take this class because I think it helps broaden who you interact with
These classes weren't just fun but they were healthy for me. They were getting me to be up on my feet and active, rather than lounge on the couch watching cartoons. It was also a stress reliever when I danced it felt as if all my worries just melted away with every single step. Having something that relieves your stress to where you can have fun is also an important part of a healthy lifestyle especially with mental health. I also participated in majorette during all of my years in high school, even making captain my last year on the line. I practiced an hour or more every day. This was also another chance for me to be active, but also enjoy being active. Making my overall lifestyle healthier. Finding activities you enjoy performing makes a huge difference in your health. It not only gets you on your feet and forces you to be active, but it gives you an outlet to put your stress into and enjoy yourself, which benefits your mental health, an aspect just as important as physical health. You get to enjoy the benefits of your favorite things to do such as dancing and
Dancing has never been a huge learning experience for me and I never saw the potential influences it would have on my life. Believing that teamwork or leadership meant nothing when it came to dance, Only it could have just been my ignorance as well never actually spending time to develop myself in this art. Until I reached high school where I joined dance class and started to become more
Being committed to competitive dance for 15 years has immensely impacted my life, as I have not only progressed technically and performance-wise, but I have been given numerous opportunities for self growth and development. Dancing has shaped me into a well-rounded, confident individual who is able to prioritize responsibilities, cooperate and collaborate with others, and exhibit strong leadership skills. Involvement in any extra curricular can aid one in developing a true passion, and through dance, I have been fortunate to find my passion.
Dance as really become a part of theatre I am starting to feel comfortable with. It is not just the part I worry about because it goes with singing and acting. I want to make dance an artform that I am good at. If I could make my dancing be at the same level as my singing I would feel so much better. I know I have a long way to go, but right now I am more comfortable than I have ever
