My Travel Story

by: Savannah Shoemaker Start Date: May 7, 2015 - End Date: Jun 22, 2015
As a dancer, one of the most important rules to remember is to never stop where you are. There is always room for growth, especially within the art of dance. For the past two years, I have been dancing and teaching at Creative Dance Arts in Tucson, AZ. At just 20 years old, my life was forever changed by my sweet, sweet students. Their passion, curiousity, persistence and individual spirits made me fall even deeper in love with dance. Teaching kids has shaped who I am as an adult and gave me a desire to always set a model example. In the past year, I have decided that dance is what I want to do forever whether it be performing, choreographing or teaching. I am interested in investing in my future and exploring my potential as an artist.

I'm so lucky to have been given to opportunity to spend the summer interning in Barcelona, Spain. There I will continue to teach dance and choreograph while challenging myself in a foreign environment. (!!!) My students in Tucson have been my constant inspiration for two years. As my biggest supporters, they really have given me the courage to take my teaching skills to a new level. I truly believe that creativity and inspiration are contagious and that I will have an impact on the dancers that I meet... as I'm sure they will have an equal impact on me!

Nothing great in life is ever accomplished alone and that is why I am now asking for the support of my friends and family! I'm trying to be as fearless as my kids would be through this experience and am so incredibly excited for the chance to share what I have learned teaching with kids from another part of the world. Any contribution towards my trip is greatly appreciated and I hope to make you all very proud! :)
