Sarita Cavazos Profile Picture

Why I Dance

I dance because it's my passion; even on my worst days, dance allows me to feel my best.

My Secret Talent

I'm secretly good at math, but I pretend not to be.

Who I Admire

I admire Michaela DePrince of the Dutch National Ballet because she has pushed through all of the struggles she has faced and become one of the most beautiful dancers in the world, and it inspires me everyday.
