  3. Its easy to make friends with other dancers.
  4. You get to be an inspiration to others.
  5. And the way other people inspire you is just amazing.
  6. You learn how to make sacrifices.
  7. And the feeling when all of your sacrifices paid off? Worth even more than the things you gave up for. 
  8. You treasure the value of teamwork.

  30. It taught me how to be better in life in so many ways.
  31. When I’m not dancing, I eat. That is why I need to dance to not get fat.
  32. I get to embody many characters but still be myself (if that makes any sense).
  33. Cheering for each other when dancing.
  34. Pigging out after training.
  35. You just enjoy both watching and dancing dances.
  36. That feeling when you’re in control of the crowd’s feelings.
  37. The only time for you to look ugly, fierce, swag, cool, mad and sexy without anyone judging you.
  38. Dancers can be really Really REALLY clingy
  39. You just can’t help but love everything when you dance.
  40. Dance is the best way to escape reality but at the same time make most of everything in that moment.
So I now have listed down 40 reasons why I love to dance. Hopefully this list is more than enough to show my love and respect for all the dancers out there. And probably, maybe, even if just a little, it made you want to dance too.
