Nice to meet a fellow music fan! I have taken jazz and some tap dancing, and I did musical theater for a few years, so that included a lot of dance. I wouldn’t really call myself a “dancer” but I just love to do it. I actually have done quite a bit of music theory too! I sang in a choir from kindergarten to 8th grade, and I was generally a soprano. The choir director had the students do some music theory books, and the final one got you up to the level of a college music theory student, so I ended up taking the AP Music Theory Exam. I also play violin and piano and play in my local youth orchestra. What instruments do you play? Now I mostly sing with our local opera company’s summer youth program and any other things they do throughout the year—I’m usually a second soprano or alto.
Your story sounds really cool and it would be fun to read it someday!
I have been writing just on and off for quite a while, mostly just starting ideas and then starting new ones. I think I started my first one back when I was 10 or 11.
This is perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take: to be seen as we truly are.
