What do you love about dance? I love the organic and freeform movement that comes out of dancing and the energy gathered from dancing. the roller coaster feel you get from dance whether it be exhaustion from a rigorous routine, or just new found high energy in an allegro, or the slow heavy or light feel from an adagio. Being one with your dance colleagues when in the space together. Dancing is like Oxygen for me, keeps me calm and alive.
