Found this quote in my dance journal from my composition class last semester. I also found a smiley face I drew the day she brought us Girl Scout cookies.
I’ve decided that I’m done worrying about whether or not my body type is “acceptable.” What does that even mean, anyway? I’m not going to assume anymore that a choreographer doesn’t want to work with me because of my size and shape. I know that the more comfortable I feel in my own body and the more I embrace my bulky muscles and curvaceous figure, the better my dancing will look and the more it will help my technique. I have a lot more appreciation for what my body can do and less and less concern about how it looks. My priorities are strength, endurance, and versatility, not measurements. Now is a fantastic time to dig deeper into what my facility has to offer.
