"Just hold on. We're going to make it through."
Growing up in the dance world, you learn to insist on excellence. The pressure that comes with this expectation can be difficult to carry along on your day-to-day life. Students of dance learn, at a very young age, the power of self-awareness and talking yourself through.
We learn our bodies, and what our bodies are of capable of. We inspect our emotions to determine where we are any given day. We test our strength, focus on our core, and we envision everything going on inside and outside of our bodies. We investigate our surroundings, our environment and the space we're working in and around.
Although all of the above is happening inside of us, dance is quiet time. The peace and stillness that comes from dancing is euphoric [intense feelings of happiness].
