Yoyo School of Dancing has educated many outstanding dancers since the school established. Yoyo dance studio has been always strengthening the quality of teaching to ensure that students receive formal and systematic dance training. Yoyo School of Dancing is grandly launching the "Wonderful Dancer Series". There are outstanding dancers who were invited by Yoyo dance studio to tell everyone about their dance learning experience, dance knowledge, and some interesting stories that happened during their dance training. In their dance worlds, I hope you can feel the valuable qualities they possess such as positive efforts, persistent love, the pursuit of perfection, the respect for and trust in their dance instructors. The spread of the "Wonderful Dancer Series" will help you to set a goal in dance and give you a better understanding of these dancers with their beautiful dance stories. I hope you dance with the rhythm, dance with the body, and dance with the heart.
"Wonderful Dancer Series" of this article is Jennifer Huang
I am Jennifer. My dance journey consists of progress and failure. My self-esteem is boosted from dance. First, I did ballet for two years. I started when I was six years old. Later, I quit ballet and discovered Chinese dance. I have been doing Chinese dance for approximately six years with Yoyo School of Dancing. The beginning was difficult as I was not very flexible and/or strong yet, so I practiced diligently. Gradually, I improved. Improving also meant learning new techniques that made my body ache and I soon wanted to quit. My mom told me I should wait it out first before making a final decision. I am glad she did. Eventually, dance became a passion and a source of enjoyment. Improvement was showing again. My teachers, Teacher Ella(Tongtong) and Teacher Yoyo(Jiaying) are the two Chinese dance teachers I am grateful towards because of their immense support, kindness, and guidance. Something I am proud of during my dance journey is being able to perform an aerial. During the summer I achieved the side aerial. Although I could barely land at first, just by not touching the floor made me ecstatic. My success lasted for a week. The week after, my ankles felt numb and I had a mental block. I took a break, believed in myself, and then practiced multiple times. Months later, my aerial was stage-ready. I learned that you sometimes just need to go for it and trust yourself even in fear. I am still a part-time dancer at Yoyo School of Dancing and I do not think I will ever become full-time, but dance will always be a part of me. I hope I will be dancing even when I am a middle-aged woman.
Ella(Tongtong): I’ve been teaching Jennifer for 5 years. She hasn’t relaxed and given up herself, she always focused and does her best in each class during the past five years. I am so lucky that I have been teaching her for a while. I hope Jennifer could achieve more awards in the dance competitions and enjoy dance in her life forever.
