I am Peggy Lin and I have been in Chinese Art
Dance Ensemble for over ten years. The people in our group are dance
lovers. My parents let me join the dance class for doing regularly
exercise at first. But finally I spent almost my free time dancing and
took part in the ensemble. Even now I don’t major in dance in college.
During these years, I have been in many countries with our team to
attend to festivals, such as Poland, Italy and Austria.
may think I love dancing because I can perform on the stage with a
beautiful make-up, beautiful costume and enjoy the applause from
audience. But I have to say not a just bit! For me, dancing is not such a
wonderful thing. I have to practice more and more to get better and
better. In my first high school year, I joined the student dance
competition in Taipei. I spent almost all my summer time learning this
program. But teacher said I just learned superficiality and it was not a
complete program. Afterward I experienced many kinds of bottlenecks.
Finally, I got the first place in the competition. But all I expressed
was those training steps. I wept because I felt so depressed, fell
asleep with my high heels because I couldn’t adapt to them for program,
threw gall up because of spinning training. All of those are my profound
memory and precious experience. But for me, dance is not just a kind of
talent. My teachers not only teach how to dance but the attitudes about
everything. They are also our counselors. Dancing affects my concept of
dealing with things or even my personality. Because of dancing, I have
lots of chances to learn more. And experience such a different life.
