Earlier this year, I told the rest of my form about my great passion for dance. I began when I was very young and I have progressed from Primary Ballet all the way to do Grade 5 cecchetti. In addition to that, I do modern dance, junior grads (extra), street dance (helper) and northern associates (once per month).
When I dance, I feel like a completely different person! I have no worries like ‘when is my homework due’ or ‘what is happening tomorrow’. When I feel down or I have to do something, I know that if I put a piece of music on, I can practise my dance and not only be the best that I can be, but lose all my stress. I hope that I can continue to progress with my dance and one day maybe be at a professional level.
