The Determination Of A Young Tap Dancer
Holly Reyes 2/25/2016
Everyone can relate to this adorable little dancer's time at dance class when all she seems to do is slip up her moves. Taking her instructor's lead with the rest of her fellow dancers, she finds herself sliding down to the slippery floor with only a few steps. She jumps right back up at the first with a hearty determination, but what happens next surprised even her classmates. She catches up with the rest of them, only to find herself falling back down. When it was hard to keep going, something within her said, "Don't give up."
Quick glances were directed at her, but she didn't even notice. When she fell, she got right back up, all the while keeping her focus on learning the steps. It hurts to fall, but nothing could stop her. Everyone has those experiences when nothing seems to be going right, but this sweet little dancer inspires us to keep going.
She didn't succeed the first, second, or even third time, but that didn't mean that dancing wasn't for her. She didn't blame the slippery shoes, or anything else for that matter. All she could do was get right back up and try again.
