MY STORY

When I was five, I was turned away from a hula halau (school) and became too embarrassed to admit my disappointment.  I refused later offers at dance lessons, even when my mother’s friend offered to sponsor me at her daughter’s ballet school.  Instead I turned to gymnastics from ages 7-15 and relished those dance elements incorporated into the sport.  Although I continued to find ways to dance as an adult by attending contra and square dances and trying a dance class here or there, I felt like an outsider and uncomfortable around real dancers.  That changed when I moved to North Carolina and found The Dancer’s Workout.

 

What TDW Means to Me:

The Dancer’s Workout made me feel welcomed into the world of dance after feeling shutout as a child.  I was hooked after my first class!  It was one hour of complete fun and energy, and it felt like a wonderful, supportive community.  If I’ve had a bad day at work or am feeling stressed, all that disappears once I step into that studio with Jules and the girls!
