I am from a little town in southern Illinois. I teach in the Anatomy labs, and I am currently a senior studying Dance at Brigham Young University. This is my second year on Contemporary Dance Theatre, and I love it! I am a Disney freak, and I really love to laugh. I have been dancing my whole life, and I plan to continue dancing until I can’t anymore.
Reflections on Visiting China
This experience in China has been absolutely incredible. Tours are never easy, but they are the most fulfilling opportunities. I have been to China previously, but this trip taught me even more about how amazing the people of this country are. They are completely charitable and so happy. It’s definitely contagious, so whenever I had a hard moment, interacting with them made everything better. Performing on that NCPA stage filled me with more joy and awe than I have felt before. Despite being far away from our normal environment and luxuries, we (performers) were able to put on a fantastic show. It was truly miraculous. I love China’s intricacies, beauty, and dedication to its roots. I’m so grateful I was able to visit this country again, and I’m very grateful for the ways that this experience helped me grow.
