The Girl with the Tree Tattoo “Taking My Place on the Dance Floor”
“I don’t think I belong here.” That was the dominant thought in my head as I watched the pro-am American rhythm session at the 2014 Holiday Dance Classic, held at the Tropicana in Las Vegas. It was my second competition as a pro-am ballroom student. I was there to dance American smooth at the bronze level. Smooth wasn’t until the next day, but my teacher was competing with other students in rhythm and I wanted to show my support.
