The reason I started dancing was really just a stroke of luck. A stroke of odd luck that I was abysmal at competitive sports when I was younger. While I played on a baseball team and a basketball team. I showed nearly zero promise in those fields and I constantly met the looming obstacle of “competition”. The idea of trying to compete with others wasn’t completely foreign to me, but it wasn’t something I naturally fell into. I struggled trying to “beat” other people. Other kids had the competitive spirit whereas I just wanted to play the game and have fun. I could never give it my all if I felt that I was going against another person.
