What do you love most about dance?

Dance has always been an amazing way to express myself. I am not super good with words, so this helps me release my emotions in a unique way. 

Why did you join DT/what do you love about DT or are excited about: DT has always been like a second family to me. It’s an amazing way to meet new people and learn new styles and push yourself as a dancer and a person.
