“I started dancing in 4th grade and doing ballet in 7th grade. It’s been an amazing experience for me and a great way to express feelings and release energy. I’m a senior in high school now, and I plan to major in dance when I go to college. I used to be kind of ashamed of doing ballet because not that many guys were involved in it, but then I saw where it was taking me. I’ve danced at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and this summer I attended the Tennessee Governor’s School for the Arts at MTSU. I was the only male dancer there, but it was fun.”
