Not Just Dancing
All semester I have been practicing with the other dance ensemble members for our Fall show. The show was this past weekend, and it was fantastic! I have always loved performing on stage and I love that I am able to continue doing that in college. Our show was entitled “Off the Charts,” and it featured dances of all styles to hit songs from 2010 to 2015. I danced in the show a total of ten times and I had a blast as always. The show always comes together nicely. I choreographed a dance to the song “Classic” by MKTO for the show and I am so proud of how it turned out. All of our routines are choreographed by dance ensemble members, and I am always so impressed by what the other girls are able to create.
Even though preparing for the show can be challenging, dance is a huge stress reliever for me. If I did not have that hour or so of dance every weekday to channel my creativity, it would be even harder to stay motivated to do school work. Dance takes up a lot of my time, but I have gained so much from it. I know all of the other dance ensemble girls would agree with me. I have especially learned valuable time management, leadership, and communication skills. I think the biggest piece of advice I would give to all future college students is to find something you enjoy that you can be a part of on campus. Do not be afraid of a time commitment because if all you do is study you will go crazy. By being involved, you may learn more than you ever imagined you would.
