Ever since I became a scholar here in CCP Dance School, and got exposed to professional dancing, I have been seeing everyday as an opportunity to improve myself. I always try to work hard and smart each time I come to class because I want to be the best. So my ultimate Ballet dream is to win the competition within me.
I know that would make me reach my goals like winning competitions, essaying my dream classical roles and maybe also having the opportunity to dance for Ballet companies in and outside the country. I won’t be settling for anything less because I will not compare myself with anybody, but only to the person I was yesterday. That is why I will just keep this hope in me and if I keep on having this outlook, I can be the best.

I dance because there’s no greater feeling in the world when you know that it came from the heart and you are doing what you love. Knowing that, from the very first to the last day you've always had the SAME DREAM to succeed.
I’ve been watching Ballet Philippines since I was 4 and every time I watch the dancers on stage, I can also feel the “magic” or the joy and excitement that they have executed well to the audience. I started this very indescribable dream when I unquestionably joined the CCP Dance School, considering it as my first step as I explore dance more.
Every Ballerina has a dream and to make this dream come true, we need to push ourselves and work hard for it. I dreamed of dancing with the older ballerinas and danseurs whom I always look up to, savor every moment on a very prestigious theater in the Philippines, to dance without any anxiety, to experience a summer intensive in America (NYC), improve more on my technique, be more flexible in body and mind, and not to dance better than the others but only to try to dance better than myself. Those are just some of my dreams as a dancer.
As Misty Copeland said, “You must have the passion, strength and belief that you can become anything.” ALWAYS DREAM! I'm happy and got more inspired that I get to give my skills back to God, because He gave me the wonderful passion for dance.

Summer in CCPDS has always been fun for me. I get to meet new friends while enjoying what I love most - dancing.
Four years ago, I never thought I would go this far. Some people think ballet isn’t fun, but for me it is very rewarding. Yes, it entails a lot of hard work and perseverance because of long hours of dance classes, but it keeps me busy during summer. No academics, but hey, I’m still learning a lot because we have [a] lecture series too.
Our 2-day recital is the best part of my summer with CCPDS. It will showcase all our hard work during classes, and dancing onstage gives me a lot of excitement. I believe everyone looks forward to this day.
Dancing the whole summer with my friends while learning a lot from only the best ballet teachers makes every summer in CCPDS more fun.
