Bold Points








Many high school seniors claim to have goals of pursuing a more traditional career path, not me. For a long time, I have desired to open a dance studio to pursue passions, expand my creativity, and inspire the next generation. Ever since I took my first dance class at three years old, I knew dance was for me. Little did I know then how far it would take me. Dance has helped me grow into the person I have become, teaching me self-confidence, responsibility, emotional skills, and more. It fuels my motivation and improves my life every day. I cannot fathom a life without it. Dance studio ownership offers a chance to pursue my passion from an entrepreneurial perspective, permitting me to explore my creativity, thrive, and spread the joy of dance to others. I continuously seek personal growth and am ready to put in the effort to better myself and the world around me. My life-long goal is to help others through my passion for dance, a passion that drives me to keep improving myself to motivate, inspire, and educate others. I am very excited to begin this next chapter of my life because I know that I will continue to refine my knowledge, skills, and who I am.
