Two years ago, University of Georgia obtained yet another biology major student. It is definitely not uncommon to hear that these individuals are by far the most lifeless crowd found in the institution. I spend most of my days within the range of a 48-inch desktop, in front of a bright blue lighted computer screen, with a 16oz cup of black coffee right beside me. However, on other days, I can be found dancing to the newest hits on the radio. I discovered the art of dancing thirteen years ago when I was about seven years old in a small renovated warehouse within my hometown of McDonough, Georgia. Dancing became a form of escape for me. While some people sang, drew pictures, wrote journal entries, and even produced videos in order to articulate their emotions, I danced. Not only did it eliminate stress, but moreover it allowed me to loosen and open up to the world that I am stuck in. When I danced, it felt like I was sharing my ideas with the world, expressing what I knew and how I felt. Dancing eventually became a part of me. Anywhere there were music, I was dancing. With so much love that have for it, people tend to ask me, why I don’t compete or why I don’t join a dance group. My simple response is; I hate being constricted to how I feel. I danced for the art of expression; the art of knowing I can move freely to my own thoughts and emotions.
