Studio D is my dream. Ever since I started to dance, I knew it was a powerful outlet. Dancing has allowed me to overcome the most challenging times in my life. I didn’t know it at the time, but dancing had a much deeper role for me. It was the only way I could successfully express myself emotionally.  Dancing could reach places within me that I didn’t know existed.
