I Could Have Danced All Night

For the finale of my very first dance recital, I sang I Could Have Danced All Night from the musical My Fair Lady (1956). In true 90s recital fashion, I was draped in a sequin cat costume and a feather boa. At barely 5 years old, I believed “I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things I’ve never done before. I could have danced all night!” Singing that song at my first recital launched unimaginable dreams. Today, I write this entry as Arielle Denise Dance, PhD. Yes, my name is Dr. Dance! The unimaginable has happened. Little did I know, I would learn to allow dance to help me spread my wings in academia and through inconceivable trials of adulthood. I used dance to help save me.
