“All I know is when he turns the music on I become a slice of someone I’d always wished I could be. All I know is that I wanted to see the girl in my reflection keep up for once, see her do the steps like they came from somewhere inside.”
“To a random person a dance studio is nothing but a room with funny floors that kind of spring when you jump on them. Funny floors that sometimes you’ve gotta take your shoes off to move on. A random person who’s never danced in one before might not understand all these mirrors, all this space, or that these four walls are something more than just a room that bodies make things up in, might not understand counts or how to let the beat guide you, how to let it speak all the words you don’t have today. Today it lets me cry in it. For the first time in months, in a room all by myself, I don’t have to be anything but this. I don’t have to explain everything I hear, everything I feel. Everything I am is mine.”
