今年是我与StepIntoMelody跳舞的第一年。我在杨百翰大学(Brigham Young University)获得了舞蹈Bachelors of Fine Arts。在那里，我有机会到中国留学，在那里我们有机会在无锡和北京演出，教舞蹈课和并与北京民族大学的硕士生跳舞，合作编舞和表演。这是我第一次学习中国古典舞和所有其他风格的舞蹈。我爱中国优美的舞蹈动作。大学毕业后，我和丈夫搬到台湾，在那里我更多地了解了中国舞的美丽和优雅。当我搬到科罗拉多州时，我想继续学习。有一天我找到了StepIntoMelody！第一次的练习，每个人都很友好，欢迎我，我非常喜欢跟她们跳舞！我一直期待舞蹈的练习也喜欢我们学到的舞蹈。丁老师教授的舞蹈和风格如此丰富多样，从她的教导我得到启发，我培养了渴望继续学习中国舞蹈的文化和传统。当我跟她们一起跳舞我有很多快乐！我一直会珍惜这特别诶的经验。我爱团队，感谢她们对我的爱和帮助，因为我还在学习中文。舞蹈队感觉就像一个家庭，我非常感激能够找到这个舞蹈团！我很高兴以后能继续与她们舞蹈！
This year was my first year dancing with StepIntoMelody. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance at Brigham Young University. While there I had the opportunity to study abroad in China where we performed, taught dance and collaborated with Master’s students at Beijing Minzu University. This was my first time learning about Chinese Classical Dance and all the other styles of dance. I instantly fell in love with the movement. After graduating from college, my husband and I moved to Taiwan where I learned more about the beauty and grace of Chinese dance. When I moved here to Colorado I wanted to keep learning and studying, that is when I found StepIntoMelody! My first day of rehearsals everyone was so kind and welcomed me, I loved dancing with them! I looked forward to each practice and loved the dances we learned. Teacher Ding teaches such a beautiful variety of dances and styles that have inspired me to learn about other cultures and traditions. Dancing with this team brought me so much joy! I will cherish every moment I had and experienced. I love the team and am so grateful for their love and assistance to me as I am still learning Chinese. The dance team feels like a family and I am so thankful I was able to find this professional dance company! I am excited to keep dancing with them in the future!
