I have been spinning Poi for a little over 2 years and Hula hooping for about 2 and a half years. I have been practicing with the fire arts for about a year. I have been taking belly dancing on and off for years but consistently for 5 or 6 months now.
I love the challenge of pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Its terrifying but so rewarding. I have recently found I had a hidden love for creating choreography. It’s really opened up my creative side… it’s kind of like a puzzle that you put together piece by piece and it becomes a work of art.
Performing has helped me build confidence, healthy coping skills when life gets rough, determination and dedication I never knew I had and has opened my imagination and creativity in a very fun, exciting and fulfilling way.
I want others to know that anything you want to do is possible… that if you have a good time, practice at any pace and just put yourself out there that you WILL get better at things. Then you look back and wonder how you accomplished that. It’s the most fun I’ve ever had working hard towards something.
I love anything in nature, camping and hiking mostly. I love psychology, human relations and books. I love writing, painting and crafts. I hope to one day be some sort of life coach and a childrens book author.
