Reflections on Visiting China
I had an unforgettable experience in China. The friends I made with the dancers at Beijing Dance Academy (BDA) were some of the most incredible people I have ever met. I was amazed by their big hearts, excitement, generosity and their capacity to love. They were the sort of people I would love to surround myself with on a daily basis. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be around them the week I was in China. It was a fantastic experience to dance with them. The BDA dancers all have the beautiful capacity to execute movement. Additionally, each dancer exhibited obedience to their instructors, coupled with a hard work ethic. I loved learning from them, as they offered me so much to integrate into my own dancing.
