2014 was the best year I’ve ever had in terms of my dance life. I got to collaborate with so many amazing people, pushed myself to new creative heights, did better than ever before in competition, and on the whole just squeezed a whole lot of joy and excitement out of dancing. I don’t think I can put into words what this year has meant to me. So instead I’ll summarize some of the highlights, chronologically, in video format. I hope you enjoy sharing in these joyful moments with me.
