“I began dancing at Angie’s Dance Academy at the young age of three. When I first started, it was just an activity that my parent’s had signed me up for but it didn’t take long for me to realize that dancing was my passion. Dancing at Angie’s Dance Academy taught me many things that I still value today. The best lesson I ever learned was to be confident in myself. This is one of the most important things in dance, as well as in life. To be successful, you have to believe that you can accomplish your goals. 
 Dancing brings you many opportunities. During my time at the studio, I was able to travel to many places and take classes from amazing choreographers. I was able to attend the Radio City Rockette Summer Intensive, twice, and dance on Radio City Music Hall Stage. I had always dreamed of being a Rockette and being able to learn from them was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I am now Co-Captain of East Tennessee State University Dance Team. Dancing at ETSU has made my college experience amazing. I am also a lyrical teacher at a studio in Tennessee, trying to influence my students as I was influenced while taking dance. If it weren’t for my parents and the teachers I had at Angie’s, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I can’t say thank you enough. I have always been taught to reach for the stars, and I will continue reaching everyday. ”  -Blake Henderson
