“There’s no one way to dance, and that’s why I love it.”

Eunice Mok: “Especially these days with everything going on, dancing has been my escape- it’s something that I genuinely enjoy doing. Dance is very free; there’s no pressure for me to hit everything perfectly or be very skillful about it. I can just sort of do whatever I want to do. My earliest memory of dancing is when I did ballet when I was three or four. I didn’t really like it that much, so I ended up turning more to hip hop until middle school, and then I did Korean dance for a little bit. After that, I went back to hip hop, and now I just do it on the side as a hobby. The only difficulty that came with dance is that I didn’t do it competitively, so it was hard to just stick with it. I wasn’t on a team or going to competitions, so I think that’s why I hopped around a lot. The biggest thing with dance, or just any interest in general, is knowing what you want to get out of it; are you doing it for the satisfaction of hitting those moves correctly, or do you want it to be something that you can just express yourself by without worrying about accuracy? I think that’s very important because for dance in particular, it’s completely up to you to decide how you go about doing it. Especially once you have an interest in something, people usually think about what ways they can use this to help them get into college or aid in their future. I think that can be great, but at the same time, I think it’s important to have a hobby that you simply do because it gives you joy.”
