 THE DANCE WORLDS 2017! This trip was one of the most memorable trips in my entire life! Being surrounded by such amazing dancers of such great talent from all different countries of the world was truly life changing. I loved talking with the dancers from different countries and seeing what dance was like in their countries. I also loved how intense the competition was because of how extremely talented each dancer was. I can't wait to go back next year and make even more amazing memories!

I seriously can't believe that it is already the end of the year! This year has truly flown by! This year has been the best year of my life. As you can see from the photos, I went to so many amazing new places and made many great accomplishments. I've realized this year my love for traveling and exploring new places. This year I went to Las Vegas, Florida, London, Paris, and Oahu. I already want to go to more new places and experience new things.

This year, I pushed myself by balancing two different dance teams. Though it was hard finding the balance between school and dance, I was able to accomplish both. Through hard work and dedication I was able to win third in the world in Florida. One of the happiest moments of my life. I also moved up from JV song to Varsity song. I love varsity song so so so much so far. I love my team and the positive vibes that we all have. I know that we are going to do amazing things this season.

I can't wait for an even better year than 2017! I have a feeling it's going to be a good one!

XOXO, Grace
