After having dedicated most of my adult life to my family and raising my children, it was time to finally do something for myself. Having always loved dancing, I finally did it. About 4 ½ years ago, I decided to take dance lessons. It started with learning the basic steps to a few popular dances and feeling comfortable on the dance floor. Having been raised not to stand out too much or take up too much space, I shocked myself when I agreed to dance a choreographed routine for a spotlight dance at the studio. Little did I know how my life was to change. Many competitions and shows later, dancing has now become an important part of my life. Not only have I made many new and wonderful friends who share the same passion, but the physical challenge of dance has helped me become physically fit, having lost quite a bit of weight. A bonus I was not counting on! And no matter how stressful my day has been at home or at work, I always look forward to my dance lessons; a perfect way to release any stress. Dance has also helped me build confidence in all areas of my life. I am even more aware of my posture when simply walking. Dance has really impacted all areas of my life. But most importantly, whether it’s taking dance lessons at the studio, or competing here in Montreal, or in Toronto, Boston and New York City, it’s always fun, fun and more fun! I owe most of this to my teacher. Alex, for that, I truly thank you!!
