I have such a strong feeling that this coming year is going to be my year in dance—and I don’t mean like I’m going to be the HBIC of the team, no no—but I am so ready to put my everything into the team and myself. I know that I have grown exponentially as a dancer the past three years, and senior year is the time where I should be at my “peak,” but I still have so much to learn and so much potential to reach my goals. I don’t want to think of my senior year on dance as a time to just go through the motions. I want to think of it as a time to push myself that much harder because my time on the team is limited. High school dance team has been the major influence on my dancing ability, and I don’t want to lose everything it has taught me. Hopefully, by the end of the season, I can say that I didn’t waste a single moment of it. I dream of being a Blazer Dancer, and now is the time to really work and strive for it.
