Even though we are all living this COVID-19 reality, for this post I would like to focus on our anniversary because Ferocity will have officially finished its eighth year in less than twenty minutes! Our 8-Year Anniversary would have happened on May 8th, but I created the company on May 1st, 2012 because I'm one of those people that needed an easy date (don't judge me, haha!)
I would like to take a moment to attempt to describe what Ferocity means to me: I felt like I didn't really begin to live until I found dance. But even so, I learned about true love not through a relationship with a person, but with my journey with Ferocity. Once I created Ferocity, I started the fight of a lifetime. I fought for a place in this world that I felt wasn't made for someone like me. I always said that if it was only me, then it would be only me - but I felt the need to find this home for myself. I have fought for this Company more than I have anything else in this life - it's been countless ups and just as many downs. There's lots of happy moments captured on camera, and lots of tears and sadness saved for in private. All of what my parents taught me in life, and things I learned in school and in my first business ultimately led me to here - to my place and this reality that I chose for myself.
Ferocity for me, is not just home, it is an experience. A place my heart knows where it can be free. It is the safe place where my mind knows it can explore and create. It is the safe embrace that I need when my fears and insecurities flare up. Ferocity has become synonymous with me, and the person I am directly molds the Company - hopefully, for the better. I have been going through memory lane and I will continue to do so and in doing this I am so grateful for the many people who have entrusted me in one way or another with their dance journey. Whether we only existed in the same space for an hour, or for years, I am forever grateful for you all and know that I don't take your trust in me lightly. I have met some of the most amazing people along the way and I know I wouldn't have met you were it not for this experience.
While we are living in uncertain times, one thing is for sure - I didn't fight every step of the way to get here and stop fighting now.
Happy 8th Year Anniversary Ferocity,
Ferocity Dance Company
