I Always Wanted to Try… Ballroom Dance!

Ballroom Dance Competition

My introduction to Ballroom Dance began at    Go Dance Studios here in Knoxville—and I loved every minute!

Ballroom Dance movies are one of my favorite genres to watch (especially Dance with Me, Take the Lead, Shall We Dance?, Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School, & Strictly Ballroom), and I was eager to learn the moves I’d seen in those movies!

I approached ballroom dance like a true multipotentialite—I went all in!


The Benefits of Ballet

I absolutely love the art of ballet!

I love how it serves as a creative outlet for me to express myself artistically.

I revel in the intensity of physical exertion required, both in movement and stillness.

I enjoy the mental challenge it provides—trying to remember different ballet positions and combinations while remaining focused on my breathing and body positioning—neck long, shoulders down, tailbone tucked in, feet turned out…

Ballet is the epitome of creative mindfulness for me.
