My first dance was in seventh grade. It was an after school dance that I mostly spent sitting and doing anything but dancing. Before arriving at the school gymnasium, my hope for the dance was to dance away with a cute girl's heart in a movie like fashion. A hopeless romantic at 12! Once the dance began, my dream seemed far from becoming reality as I spectated from my vantage point in the bleachers. That was until an eighth grade girl came up to me and asked if I would like to dance with her friend.
