Freshman Megan Fox finds herself hurrying from one place to the next; she is always busy, but Megan isn’t busy in a bad way. 

Her week is filled with one of the things she loves most: dancing. Megan dances for the dance school Dance Creations on their competitive team, but she also is dancing for FHC’s varsity dance team.

“I started dancing when I was seven,” Megan said. “My first class was a hip hop class, and that’s probably what is one of my favorite styles still, but it’s not my first choice anymore.”

I would consider them really close friends because I’m with them for five hours each night. We all are working hard and we all boost each other up. We all want to do well for the future in different things like competing, so we just push each other to do better.”

Starting from a young age, Megan has had a lot of time to grow outside of her comfort zone and learn different dance styles other than hip hop. She now has learned jazz, lyrical, ballet, point, pom, and contemporary. 

Megan’s choices of dance have broadened her experience level and areas of expertise. Along with learning different styles of dance, Megan has learned from different experiences through the different places she has danced at.

“With varsity, it is fun and really competitive, and the team is really nice and fun to be around,” Megan said. “Dancing with Dance Creations is really fun and has been getting more competitive lately because the competition season is after winter break, so we have to keep working hard on perfecting dances.”

Along with all the experience, Megan has gained, she, unfortunately, has to give up other things she loves: tennis. Her dance schedule interferes with other extracurricular activities.

“Varsity season ends at the end of winter,” Megan said, “so right after that season is when the varsity tennis season starts. But Dance Creations goes into the tennis season, so depending on when the competitions are for that, we’ll see if they conflict with matches.”

Megan’s year-round schedule is filled with dance; she spends hours dancing after school either practicing for varsity or Dance Creations, and even, sometimes, Megan spends time at both places in one night.

“For varsity, I have practice for sure two days a week for an hour,” Megan said. “But, every here and there they add in an hour or two on Sundays. And for Dance Creations, I dance for about four hours after school; sometimes it is on the same day as varsity practice.”

Although Megan spends so much time dancing, it’s still something she looks forward too. After seven hours of school, she is always excited to get her mind moving with positive reinforcement.

Megan finds herself dancing with different people from different places.  It may seem hard to be friends with everyone, but she thinks the exact opposite—these people are some of Megan’s best friends.

“I would consider them really close friends because I’m with them for five hours each night,” Megan said. “We all are working hard, and we all boost each other up. We all want to do well for the future in different things like competing, so we just push each other to do better.”

Each place she spends her time at is different, but both are special in her heart.

“I don’t prefer one over the other because they’re both so different,” Megan said. “I feel like I get to have enough of each at each place; I just feel more even.”

Megan is a talented dancer and a hard-worker in all things she does. Megan takes both of these traits and puts them into dancing for every day she is there doing her best, and, most of the time, her positive attitude and experience helps her to rise above her competitors.

“For one of my solos last year, I got first overall; I had never gotten first before that,” Megan said. “It makes it feel like your hard work has really paid off in class, even though it’s a split second that you’re standing on that stage while holding a trophy. But you still get to keep the trophy, and having it in your room as a remembrance of working hard does pay off in the end.”
