Real Charlotte is a weekly series highlighting everyday humans that live in Charlotte. The people are what make this place special. Through this series, we hope to show you the successes, struggles, goals and dreams of Charlotteans.
“Dance is not only my career, it is…I feel like I’m going to cry. It is my source of constant happiness. It’s a release and it is the only time that I am not overthinking things. It’s my safe place. And my happy place. My creative place. And it is very special to me that I get to share my joy every single day with my students.”
-Sara Frances Koontz, Co-director/Instructor at Beyond Dance Project
