MY SPECIAL HOBBY Practically every person has his or her own hobby; whether it's a sport, collecting certain items, or something one takes their time practicing. Personally, I never thought I ever had a hobby. As a matter of fact I wasn't even sure what a hobby actually was. Then I got to thinking and I finally realized that my hobby was dancing. Yes, I know that to some people dancing is not considered a true hobby; but the way I see it, if I enjoy dancing and spend my precious time doing it, then I have every right to consider it as my special hobby.

As far as I can remember about my childhood, I have always loved to dance. Dancing was just my thing. I remember attending ballet classes when I was five years old. I would learn the routines so quickly that the instructor would sometimes ask me to help her teach the other students.

The greatest part of being in ballet was attending the ballet recitals. That was when each of us let ourselves shine in front of our family and friends. I always thought that the crowd was watching my every move and thinking, "Wow, that girl dances so gracefully." Just thinking that made me try even harder to be the best I could. I would practice every day after school and right before bedtime, too. It didn't even matter to me if there was no music playing, I just kept on dancing.

Becoming a famous dancer was one of my greatest childhood dreams. I believed that one-day I would get the chance to be a dancer like those in the Music Television Videos (MTV). I especially looked up to the girls who danced in the Madonna and Janet Jackson videos.
