“Even though every day can feel like a challenge in many ways, I dance to overcome these challenges. I dance to prove to myself and to anyone watching that I do what I love and what I am passionate about. Every day I work I am determined to improve on even the smallest of things. I love on those rare occasions when I dance by myself on stage, when the lights and audience fade away, and I feel as though it is just me dancing, married with the music.”
