"Teen Elite Team taught me to stay true to who I am in the dance industry, and not to change. Also, it gave me awareness that there are other dancers out there struggling with the same things I struggle with. I made new friendships, and an ever-lasting bond with a group of people that will always be there to support me throughout this dance journey."
