Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.

I was dubbed the nickname "twinkle toes" because I developed a habit from ballet class; I am always walking around on my tiptoes. I was a ballerina for 12 years of my life; I first started off doing tap, jazz, and ballet but really took a liking to ballet and stuck with that. Sadly I had to retire because I was at a point in my ballet career that I would have to commit to it five times a week and become a professional ballerina. I have regretted that decision every day of my life wishing that I never stopped. Fortunately I still have a place for it in my heart.

My ballerina habits have never left me and sometimes when no one is home I put my toe shoes on and just dance. I watch every dance show that comes out, especially So You Think You Can Dance; it sends chills up and down my spine. Dance is my love, my passion, and my life. So dance like no one is watching…
