I have being dancing at Excel Dance for 7 years now training in street dance and I absolutely love it, before excel dance I had no experience in dancing at all I had previously trained in gymnastics for 2 years and competed. When I first came to Excel I had two left feet and always wanted to stand at the back of the class thinking no one could see me. 7 years later I am so much more confident and now competing in street dance and performing on stage in front of hundreds of people.
My dancing started off as a hobby for me but now it’s my life and I have a very exciting future ahead as I am in training to become a full time coach when I leave school. I attend the Excel coaching academy which has widened my knowledge of coaching and given me a whole new level of confidence. I have now been helping and assisting in classes for 3 years and I get so much enjoyment out of doing this as well as taking part in all of my classes.
My favourite part of Excel is getting the opportunity to perform all year round and also compete against other teams and always being challenged with harder routines. A massive achievement was when I got to perform with the excel coaches for the first time. I have made so many new friends at Excel Dance and love having fun in all classes, its also amazing that I am a role model to all younger students and they now look up to me like I looked up to Sharnie.
What a privilege it is to call Excel my family.
