Happy International Dance Day!

223Dance has become a passion of mine; something that I cannot possibly live without.  I was first introduced to dance when I was in elementary school in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The public elementary schools within the Salt Lake county worked alongside Ballet West, Utah’s own ballet company, to introduce children to the performing arts, while encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle, and encouraging children to continue their education, through a program called I.C.A.N.D.O. (Inspiring Children Against Not Dropping Out).

My freshman year of high school I became involved with dance again in Florida at Destiny Dance Center, a studio whose focus is to glorify God through dance.  I focused on hip hop and contemporary dance, while studying at the studio, and became part of their company.  Once in college, I continued my dance education by taking jazz, contemporary, and ballet classes.

Below is a gallery of some of my favorite dance memories over the years. What are some of your favorite dance memories?
