As a teenager, social life may seem like the most important thing in your life at some moments. Everyone wants to have fun, forget responsibilities, and hang out with their friends. And if that’s their priority, cool, you do you. However, as a teen dancer, you have to make sacrifices.
You would rather get your homework done, stretch, and practice for 3-4 hours after school instead of going somewhere to eat and hang out with your teen friends. You would rather spend your weekend working on routines and choreographing dances than going out and partying.
Some people may tell me that I’m missing out on my teen years because of how committed I am to this “Hobby”, but when it’s the only thing that you want to do every second of every minute, it doesn’t bother you at all. It’s not a “Hobby”, it’s my life.
