MARIANA / dancer / 2002:
For what I recall, I have been always connected to dance, although not professionally nor in a technical way, I just genuinely enjoyed it.
When I grew older, I can say I was kind of stuck in a dark place. But every time I danced, all my worries and problems ended up vanishing, turning into happiness.
Dance gave me hope somehow.
It was then that I decided that I wanted to keep dancing, and learn more about it.
I wanted, and still want, to be happy while doing and working on something that I really like. Something that makes me feel, not like I am surviving, but rather alive.
Following dance was the best decision I've ever made till this day.
