Dance is such a beautiful art.

Dance has the ability to express emotions more deeply, than any other art can. I am so grateful to be a dancer and choreographer to have this art in my life. This Thanksgiving, I wanted to share my gratitude for dancing with you.

Why Am I So Grateful for Dance?

Ever since I can remember, I have always been a dancer. I love dancing and have always been grateful to have it in my life. Growing up in a broken home, I often used dance as a way to escape the world. Dancing allowed me to break free from my problems and just breathe on my own, losing myself in the dance.

I am grateful for the escape dancing provides.

As I grew, I pushed myself more an more to be a better dancer. Though I wasn't talented, my hard work has allowed me to pursue a career in dancing.

I am grateful to be able to always do what I love, and dance as my career.

As the years passed, I have always remained in good health. I remember in Junior High I pulled a Tendon on the top of my foot and was unable to dance for 6 weeks. I was completely heartbroken, and cried every day, because I could not dance. Luckily, I am healthy and able to use all of my body to dance with all of my heart.

I am grateful for a healthy body to keep me dancing.

I am so grateful to be a dancer!

Dance is my whole life. For that I am truly Grateful.

Within dance, you have the ability to share so much beauty, joy, sorrow, pain, love, and emotion. You have the ability not just to exercise and create art, but to inspire others. As a dancer, I often feel like I have the ability to make a difference in the world.

For all you dancers out there, I hope you take this Thanksgiving Holiday Season to think about how lucky you are to have dance in your life. Remember to be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life and you will always be happy!
