    I really appreciated this post. Most people aren’t aware of the hardships dance teams undergo , unless they’re on a team.

    Everything is so completely accurate. It doesn’t get any more real than those weeks before competition. Being on the edge, sleep-deprived.. it becomes so much more than dancing! Can’t wait for Part 2!

    Perfection. Its like you took all our feelings and thoughts and so perfectly put them into words. You’re so right. Its not “just dancing.” Thillana is about bonds, commitments, time-management, friendships, creativity and all of that put to test. I wouldn’t trade my Thillana family for anything else in this world ;)

    Priya, I love this. Dina took all the words right out of my mouth! Nonetheless, this article pretty much describes how my college years were. These were the college experiences I will forever brag about and look back upon with the hugest smile. It’s passion unlike anything else, and it’s so good to know that this was a family effort & collaboration. A THILLANA family effort. Oh, and I love the picture you chose :)

    Sorry it took me so long to comment but I LOVE everything you’re writing and your recognition of Thillana. I too can’t wait for part 2 :) you definitely accurately verbalized all our emotions! Keep up the good work and looking forward to upcoming articles.
