When you tryout for the dance team, you’ll see many girls who love to dance and want nothing more than to be a part of this team. When the final selections are made after try-outs, there may be some old faces, but there will definitely be those strangers that you know nothing about. Even though you know nothing about the girls you are standing next to, at that exact moment you all become ONE, you dance as ONE, and you represent the University as a whole. It’s not just about being teammates. It’s about a bond you share with the other girls for the love of dance.
Relationships usually start off by becoming friends for a long period of time. We don’t have that long until we are with each other every other day, so we become close sooner than later. Now, everyone doesn’t always blend wonderfully we have our ups and downs, but in the end we come together as a team and as a family. Yes, we are a family. The relationships and memories we develop on this team over time are ever-lasting. It’s a bond that can never be broken. We will be in each others’ weddings, experience each others’ first births, and even vacation with each other throughout the years. It’s hard to believe how strangers become instant family, but it happens because we all share one love and that’s DANCE.
The relationships I have personally gained on this team have changed my life forever. I love my team, sisters, and future bridesmaids. Go Jags!
