I was so grateful to have this opportunity to perform at this showcase. Especially this being my first time ever performing there and it being my piece, was super special to me. Everyone had the idea set in stone that I was going to stick to my comfort zone and come out doing what I normally do which is me being a freestyle/battle dancer; of course -that definitely wasn’t the case. That night was the moment I finally presented and choreographed a piece. A goal checked off. I was even more blessed with amazing dancers to present it with. Any sybarite event is a night to remember. – Samantha Morales
