Dancing through Massachusetts

This summer I attended a week-long dance camp in Berkshire Hills, Massachusetts. This camp is called Dance Sessions and was created by a group of professional dancers who want to share their passion and wisdom with young dancers looking to pursue it as a career. The camp is out in the middle of no where, this is to keep the dancers away from the outside world to focus on dance and dance only. The camp was intended to be difficult, but I never expected it to be as hard as it was. The camp required me to maintain a vegan diet the whole week I was there. I had to take class outside in the burning sun, I also had to open up to random strangers about my personal life and relationship with dance itself. The weekend demanded a lot of hard work, trust in others, and accepting myself. It was definitely a love, hate relationship, but I wouldn’t change that experience for the world.
