Mission Statement: Christie Schambera, Chief Editor
When I was a child, I dreamed of dancing. It was second nature to me. At age 5, I remember creating tutus out
of kleenex and ribbon, with my sister. We would dance in the backyard until the sun went down. At the age of 8, I decided that I’d take
ballet for the first time. The moment I put on my first pair of ballet slippers, I was in love. I can remember my first
performance of “The Nutcracker” when I was 10 years old. I didn’t walk to audition for the “Dance of the Snowflakes” - I ran.
Throughout school, I always made sure that in some way, I was involved with movement. My excitement for dance only became
stronger as the years went by. I took as much dance as I could, and performed in every show I knew of.
When I wasn’t dancing I was spending hours sitting on the library floor of the performing arts section, soaking
up every dance book in sight. I would gather and watch all the dance footage I could get my hands on. I was hungry for knowledge.
DanceHelp is dedicated to those dancers that hunger for information and advice about dance, even when they’re not dancing.
