I've been dancing since the age of three. It's been a huge part of my life and at points was my whole life. It's been apart of my biggest successes and my biggest downfalls. For the past four years it had haunted me, I lost my escape from the world, my coping mechanism, I was lost because I had stopped dancing.

I found myself just going through the motions of everyday life, I lost my purpose, for me dancing was my therapy, my way of making sense of the world. When you're dancing you can just shut the world out, forget everything and just dance. You can communicate through dance the things you can't say.

I decided to be happy again, and go back to dancing. It was scary at first but the body never forgets how to do it, even if the stamina has gone. The most important thing in life is to take control, don't leave your own happiness in the hands of someone else.

People say they can't dance which is wrong. As babies we dance and bounce around, then life comes along and beats it out of us. You don't have to be the best you just have to love it, I guess the same could be said about life.
