"Words could never describe how much I enjoy dancing Full time at Village Nation. I look forward to a new day every morning, where I am allowed to be myself, share my love and passion for dance with my friends, and grow in many ways that I thought weren’t possible. It is a safe place, a place where I can show up as me and be present. A space where you can just dance, open your heart and gain such special knowledge from the industries best. There is no competition, you are supported as an individual, and nurtured to be the best version of yourself. I am forever grateful for my time at Village Nation. My only regret is that I didn’t join sooner." – Soraya Zapata
