Quotes From Past Winners

"The grit that I formed from coming out of deeply traumatic experiences dulled the knives that had attempted to cut through it. I have arrived to the late, yet necessary, realization that I have everything in my power to make myself more than a product of my surroundings."

“I know I am not the first dancer to struggle with negative body image. I only wish I could be the last...A healthy body is neither underweight nor overweight. Dance is not about a body shape or line, it is about dynamics. It is about a living, breathing human being moving through space and pushing out its soul like smoke curling from a burning candle.”
