Sonia's Story

Dancing has always been something I’ve loved to do. Ever since I was small my parents would put on some Spanish music and I would dance around the house. Dancing is fun, good for your body, and it lets you be yourself. What excites me about dancing is that there is always something new to learn and when you get that one move right and you’re just like “yes!” That’s probably one of the best feelings ever. I try my best to pursue it but both my parents work and they don’t really let me take public transportation. Also my school doesn’t have a dance club or dance classes so I don’t really get the opportunity to do it at school. I do admit I am shy at dancing with people staring at me but it’s just a matter of time for me to feel comfortable and letting loose.

A Note from Judit Rivera, Sonia's Teacher

Sonia is an amazing individual who would benefit greatly from this program. When given more opportunities, Sonia will be able to achieve and succeed in this program. She would be an important asset to this program.

Thank you

Thank you so much for your help, I really do appreciate it. You are helping me pursue a life long dream of mine. I have always loved dancing and this will help me change a lot of aspects in myself and life. Joining the San Francisco Dance Fitness will help me better my health and be able to learn new dance moves and learn new skills. Thank you so much and I am extremely thankful.

Dear Sonia,
I am inspired by your love of movement. Dance is such an important part of my life, and I really want it to be a part of your too. I dance ballet and tango, and I've tried traditional Chinese and Mexican folk... never be afraid to experience the grace of other cultures! And keep seeking ways to improve yourself as a scholar and human being. If you keep setting goals, and keep seeking programs/foundations that can help, you can do anything you want in this life. Keep dreaming, keep shaping the path, and keep graciously receiving and giving. I wish you all the best this summer, and beyond in your education!
