Dancing at Diversity Dance and Performing Arts pushes you to act maturely and responsibly, but also gives you confidence and the drive to pursue your goals. When I first started at Diversity I was shy and had trouble making friends. I was really nervous about my first class and I was scared that wasn’t going to be as good as other students. As time went on I started to open up and try new things, I made close friends and gained the courage to be myself. The staff at Diversity are kind and supportive and have never made me feel like I wasn’t good enough in my classes, which I think is really important when you’re learning something new. They are patient with everyone, and never single you out or make you feel inadequate. Dancing at Diversity has given me the courage to follow my dreams and the discipline to work hard for what I want. Somewhere in between the pliés and jetés, the people at Diversity became like a second family to me and I can’t imagine having danced anywhere else.
