Rokiatou's Story

My passion is dance.

I discovered that dancing was a passion of mine when I was 10. I would dance all around the house with excitement. When I dance, I feel like I am in another world, and I have so much control of my body. When I dance, I feel like I am speaking to people with the movements of my body. Dancing is another language that can connect to people. I started off dancing at my church and it made me more open to dance. Then my mom finally signed me up for dance school at the age of 11. Dancing became something that I enjoyed doing and would keep doing.

Attending SOCAPA Dance Bootcamp can make me become a better dancer. I can learn new skills and new ways to create moves for a dance. I can also meet new dancers and learn new things from them. I want to advance the skill I already know and learn new skills I don't know. SOCAPA can open many new opportunities in dance for me, which would benefit me in many ways.

A Note from Mrs. Smith, Rokiatou's Mentor

I have the pleasure of knowing Rokiatou for 14 years. She has been dancing in the church for many years and she is gifted in dancing. When she was not able to dance at a dance school, she continued to dance in church. Rokiatou works well with other dance members and enjoys teaching others. She is one of the best dancers in the church and she is very dedicated.
