Sharing Our Love Of Dance

For Valentine’s Day this year we asked everyone who came into the studio to write on a paper heart why they love to dance. We got so many great responses that we just have to share with the world what they said. Everyone learns to dance for different reasons and the benefits we reap are also very different at times. This list is word for word what each student or teacher wrote and shows just how many different ways dancing can improve our lives!
