Intro Hi my name is Raquel Goka I am currently enrolled in the art dance program at my high school I have been dancing as a versatile Dancing for about nine years or so anything from hip-hop jazz acro lyrical anything you name I’ve probably done it Dancing is my passion and it is my goal to turn my passion into a successful businessDancing is a form of self-expression and over the years it’s how I’ve learned to express myself self expression of something that a lot of young girls have trouble doing and I believe Dancing is a way to do this without doing and negative manner Dancing also teaches you self-discipline it teaches you how to be more confident and it teaches you creativity which is stimulation for the mind.A lot of dance studios in Brampton focus on the competitive aspect rather than the recreational affect where is you just answer your phone I know this from Dancing as a recreational dancers and experience at the recreational kids are kind of pushed to the side and not seen as vital to the studio reputation which is not there because you should not be categorized based on what you can afford as competitive dancing is very expensivei want to Soley focus on the art of hip-hop dancing hip-hop dancing is also not seem as important to studios most hip-hop teacher are just jazz teachers asked to full in because hip hop is only seen as an add on. As a young African-American girl I believe hip hop is something that’s in my blood is in my roots hip hop is only seen as an add on. As a young African-American girl I believe hip hop is something that’s in my blood is in my roots and what I’ve come from I believe that it is my job to teach my passion or two other young girls I just be a mentor aaf it girls of any race or any easy and just create unity and promote self confidence in the community

Great business idea not a lot of hip hop dance studios here in Brampton :)

^^Yea I was gonna say that too about the studio prices being unaffordable for a lot of people. Amazing that you thought of this cause many people don't realize how much dance classes actually cost, competitive and recreational.
