This is something that has been on my mind for quite some time now: I don’t know where I stand in the dancing world. Where my skill set can take me or what my knowledge can bring me. Dancing is still something I’m very passionate about, and it’s something I truly wish to do in the future. I’ve been seeing a lot of things that motive and inspire me, but this time feels different. I usually see inspiration and it motivates me for a little and I say I’m going to do something and I end up doing nothing. But lately, I can finally see myself grow as a dancer and see things I need to work on or what I actually need to start doing (like going to ballet again haha). A lot of people have seen me dance but I believe more so haven’t. Actually I think no one has seen me dance for a very long time so it’s hard to ask people if I’m “good”. By “good” I don’t mean how many styles I can do or what certain moves I can execute. I mean my knowledge. The knowledge I possess as a dancer, as an artist, to take me to a certain point to plant a seed that will grow a new tree of knowledge. I feel very comfortable in my hip hop style, and more styles to come I hope to excel. But I digress; what I’m really trying to figure out, is if I have a future in this realm. People have told me I’m good and what have you, and a compliment is a compliment. But what I need to know is what am I missing? I have so many new ideas and nothing to do with them. I don’t dance with friends anymore and when I do dance, it’s just a quick spill of juice from a cup overflowing with inspiration. I know I’m very serious about this, and it is NOT just a hobby. It’s a passion and a lifestyle, but like most lives it takes years of experience to truly understand where you belong. And right now, I don’t know if I belong here as a dancer. I want to be there, but it’s hard for me to say if I’m supposed to..
