“The reason I started dance goes back to when I was very little- about four years old. There was a mall by my house, and whenever my mom would go grocery shopping, there would be this this big window nearby. And I’d always run away from my mom and go stand in front of the window to watch the breakdancing classes going on inside. I had a lot of energy, so my mom asked, “Do you want to try it out?” And I just got into it really fast.
Dance was more than just a hobby for me. Right from the beginning, I really looked forward to going to class. I played sports and stuff, which is fun, but it’s not the same. There’s just a different environment and a different vibe when you’re in a dance class compared to when you’re playing basketball, or football, or soccer or whatever. So why do I dance? I just kind of fell in love with it right away.”
