When I first joined dance.net, I didn't realize how much this place would mean to me.

I'll start at dance. The Irish boards have given me advice, support, and the opportunity to help others. Plus, I have met dancers from all around through dance.net, and I have made some great Irish dance friends that understand what I'm going through, like Dani(The MidlakeMuse) IrishdanceElfie, Llamallamaduck, sunnyskies230, the list goes on and on.

Dance.net has also given me the opportunity to learn about other forms of dance. I didn't even know there was such a thing as disco, and even though I knew what highland was, I know so much more about it from the boards here at DDN. I can even pick out some ballet moves, just from reading the boards!

I am more knowledgeable as a result of DDN. Many of the posts on the debate board and the philosophy board make me think, and I learn about other's views. It fascinates me.

Suddenly, I start caring more about natural disasters. Who on DDN lives in that area? When hurricane Katrina hit, I had other DDNers' phone numbers to ensure that my friend Natty, was ok. I always was sympathetic to victims of natural disasters, but for once I actually was connected to somebody who was about to face something I have never even been close to.

I have recieved support, and have given support. When I joined DDN, I didn't realize exactly how sad some other lives are. Now, I know how to give support to those who are going through tough times.

Dance.net has made me laugh so many times, and has made me cry sometimes, and has made me think about others.

Most of all, dance.net helped me to realize what I wanted to do with my life. I realized I wanted to be a dance teacher, and I am working on reaching that goal all the time now.

Thank you, dance.net.
