So my sister and I took advantage of community dance classes, learning at home and teaching each other counts and styles like jazz and ballet. Then we would share what we learned to other kids, for instance at the boys and girls club in the neighborhood. As we got older we tried to gets scholarships but that was a hard goal to accomplish given the fact we have no formal training. We also cheered in high school which was very different than the styles we self taught ourselves. This ideal had become one of our many missions to work within the community. That is Blyue Rose Dance Project.
