So throughout my whole childhood I always found myself as kind of the outcast when it came to sports and fitness.  I was always a little overweight and struggled to do some of the things that most of the kids were able to do easily. I truly wanted to get healthier and wanted to be able to do all the cool things and sports everyone else was doing in school, but I never knew how to.  I was always the uncoordinated one with everything I seemed to pick up in the sports world.  Always the one to be picked last in gym class and never wanting to go back the next day because I always was afraid of letting down the team if I did something wrong.  I was always looking forward to when gym was over, never when it was starting and overall just feeling bad for not being as good as everyone else was.

When I decided to try Aerial Dance I learned that it is okay to be on different levels and that everyone learns and succeeds at their own pace in their own ways. I am learning to be okay with my own progress and to not be so hard on myself.  I love being able to finally be myself, judgement free and progress in my journey as well.  I feel so much stronger and so much healthier in general than I had previously my entire life. Everyone is so generally supportive I feel so welcome and at home with everyone here. I love waking up to come here and have a totally new outlook on life, physical health and fitness as well. I am so thankful I have been able to find this place and become the person that I want to be. Thank you for bringing a positive outlook on life for me again.  I cannot wait for what is to come next in my journey! You guys have truly changed my life for the better in more ways than I can count. I am not only physically stronger but have so much higher confidence as well!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn to love myself again. I cannot wait to be able to continue expressing myself through dance and pushing myself past the limits of what I thought I could handle. Aerial Dance has truly changed me for the better over and over again.
