I started dancing less than a year ago and set myself a goal of choreographing a solo. With little experience, I worked most nights learning to interpret the music. I performed my solo in October. I’d never feared the stage before however close to my performance I started to feel nervous, wondering if I’d forget some of the steps. My mum told me to enjoy the moment. Before I walked out on stage, I remembered the reason I started dance; to feel totally free and happy. I performed my solo to my personal best and now live for the stage!
