“I got inspired to dance because of my brother. Him and his friends- they had a dance group and they didn’t really have a place to practise, so they practised in our garage. I’d sit down and just watch them and thought it was really cool. And then I’d find myself in the mirror, trying to bust a move or two myself (smiles).
But yeah, why dance? As you mature, as you grow up in this environment, what people don’t really understand is that Dance is an art. Like in a painting, people paint how they feel, right? Well, in dance, your choreography, or just how you freestyle, could depend on your emotions, how you feel inside too. Dance also builds your self- confidence. You become more confident in what you do, in dance, and in other parts of your life too.
And even if we can inspire just one person to take a dance class or something, well, that’s all we ever really wanted to do as a team, I think. It’s not always really about winning competitions or being high class dancers. It’s just about showing that we do honestly care about a lot of people out there. And we hope that what we do can help them in the future.”
