11 Years Dancing at Sharon’s Studio of Dance & Music

$330 Scholarship

Sophia has been dancing with us for the last 11 years and will be awarded with a $330 scholarship at recital. In the fall, Sophia will be attending Fairleigh Dickinson as a part of the Honors Program majoring in Hospitality and Tourism Management. Read Sophia’s senior dance essay below.

I started dancing at Sharon’s in 2nd grade in September of 2012. I had never

danced before and I was excited to start something new. After my first year, I loved it

and begged my mom to let me continue because I loved it so much. I have loved dance

from the minute I stepped inside the studio the first time. As a kid, I was not as

passionate about many things as I was about dance. Dance gave me an opportunity to

express my creativity and me as a person.

I dance for myself. Not for others around me, but for myself. I didn’t just think of

dance as a class. I thought of it as an experience which has influenced my life in the

best possible way. Every time I go to class here, I wonder what my life would be like if I

didn’t start dancing. I have wondered that many times through my time here and I was

finally able to find an answer. If I didn’t dance, I wouldn’t have met the many friends I

have had in my years here that love dance as much as I do. I would not have something

that I am as passionate about as I am about dance.

Sharon’s has always been a welcoming and friendly environment for me over the

11 years I have been here. The teachers I have had have taught me so much. They

have taught me that as I do the dances, to feel it in my heart and dance from the heart. I

have taken that lesson and applied it to every dance I have done. My dance career

would not have been the same if I did not start and finish here.

As I go on to Fairleigh Dickinson as a part of the Honors Program majoring in

Hospitality and Tourism Management, I will always continue to dance. I will remember how amazing my experience was and dance in college whether it be on a team or just for myself. Sharon’s has always had a big place in my heart and it will continue to

always be a part of my life that I will never forget.
