Irish dance had a great impact on my life. It taught me the discipline and time management that saved me in college. The individual focus that Irish dance required taught me how to be independent and reliant on myself to be successful. Without fail, interviewers have asked me about my experiences and are impressed with the level of maturity that develops from the experiences of training and performing in the capacities that I did as a LYNN dancer. Personally, the relationships that I developed dance are amazing. Not only am I still so close with the girls that I danced with, I am still even friends with girls that I competed against.
