Learn more about Jennifer Earls:
"Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I began dancing when I was 5 years old, studying and performing in tap, ballet, and jazz at a local dance studio. While I always loved dancing, it really came alive for me when I was 14 years old. This was the age when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease – cancer of the lymph nodes. In the darkest of times, dance was my light. Living in the music was one of the few places in which I felt I could truly express myself, enjoy the moment, and be in my body in a positive way. Fortunately, I survived that period, and went on to dance through college."

there's no such thing as being completely ready. you're never going to feel like you've got it all sorted out.
if you get to a place where you're just a little bit more excited than afraid, that's when you go for it. that's when you go all in. to hell with playing it safe. - TheBetterManProject
