I took my first ballet class when I was three years old, and since then, I've fallen in love with dance both as a sport and as an art form. Dance practice is the space in my busy schedule where I can clear my mind of everything else going on in my life and just focus on my body's movement.
In the spring, I auditioned for UH's Cougar Dolls Dance Team and made it onto their 2013-2014 squad!

This weekend, we travelled to Texas State University in San Marcos to attend UDA (Universal Dance Association) College Camp. We performed as a team for the first time, learned some awesome new choreography to bring back to UH, and got to interact with other college dance teams from all over the country.

Overall, it was an amazing experience. We really bonded as a team, and we're now looking forward to football season when we'll get to cheer on our boys at Reliant Stadium!
