Kiera Johnson Profile Picture

Why I Dance

I dance because it has always been the best way to express myself. Not only can I put all my emotions into my dancing, it's also a release and escape from anything going on in life that I feel so blessed to have.

My Secret Talent

If I told you my secret talent, it wouldn’t be a secret anymore.

Who I Admire

I admire anyone who never gives up no matter what life throws at them. People who keep reaching for a goal and something they strive to get or have the people who inspire me to keep going, pushing, and working hard for what I desire to do.
