I’m Almost There
I started dancing at the age of 7 where I started in hip hop and I was one of the few boys in my dance studio. Whenever someone asked me what I did, I was embarrassed to say that I was a dancer because it wasn't as accepted by society as it is now. Ten years later, I dance all styles as a competition team dancer and I am proud to say I am a dancer, athlete, and artist. In this dance, I started with contemporary symbolizing where I am now and then ended with hip hop symbolizing me chasing my dreams of becoming a commercial dancer in Los Angeles. The little boy in the hip hop class would have never guessed how many accomplishments he could achieve and how confident he would become when he grew up. The song "You're Gonna Make It" shows all our hard work pays off in the end!
