“Most dancers say that the stage is when and where they know that everything theyve been doing is worth it. If you think about it in minutes then it doesnt seem worth it, but I feel like the stage experience in general—rehearsing there, creating a story, and everything about that—thats a very unquantifiable thing. Thats why I continue. Thats why all those artists continue. I think its because the feeling of art is, in an economic sense, greater than everything else—its almost infinite,” Michelle Si (12) said.

“I dont want to dog on teamwork because Im a big fan of teamwork for sure—there are a lot of times for it. But to a degree, I really do appreciate the importance of self-sufficiency. I’m a big fan of that, not in a way of ‘you should not need other people,’ but when necessary, you should be able to handle whats thrown at you,” Bayden Yazalina (12) said.

“That feeling of letting go—whether it’s hearing and feeling my voice to the tips of my fingers or feeling it project out into the world, or whether it’s that feeling of finding something new—it’s ... addictive and keeps me going,” Ruya Ozveren (12) said.

“Most of my interactions were tied to the circumstances of the moment. In order to step beyond that, and get to a more meaningful relationship, [I realized] there has to be something more to it. And I think being more vulnerable is a good way to get there,” Evan Cheng (12) said.

“I want to be the best person I can to people in terms of compassion and kindness. I’m not sure where it really comes from — I guess my identity, ever since I moved here, has been ‘the Canadian,’ so there’s always that stereotype where I have to be super nice to everyone and I have to apologize for everything. But it really does hurt me if I make someone feel bad. I’d much rather them be more positive or happy because of something I’ve done,” Finn Frankis (12) said.

“I look to music to kind of explain things about myself that I can’t explain with thoughts or words, just these kind of questions that I have about life. When I listen to music, those things become clear to me, not in a logical sense -- but you can kind of feel why life is worth living, Alex Rule (12) said.
