When I was nine years old I started ballroom dancing and immediately fell in love with it. I grew up doing ballet, tap, and jazz and already had loved performing. Since then, I have competed a few times and performed with my partner/instructor Matt Watson. The feeling I get when performing or competing is indescribable. I know what I was made for and it's to dance. Unfortunately, my family and I are not financially stable enough to be able to send me to these competitions. Millennium Dancesport and United States Dance Championships are some of the biggest ballroom dance competitions in the U.S and I feel that I am ready to further my dance career by competing at both competitions. My dream is to one day be on "So You Think You Can Dance" or "Dancing With the Stars", and to have the experience as a competitor, and to make a name for myself in the dance world would be a dream come true.
