ADRIANNA GONZALES: Virtual Students, Real Emotions

"We dance hip hop together. When we dance, it's like we're in sync with each other. Dance is a way to let your emotions out. If I've had a particularly stressful day, dance is an outlet for me. It's a way for me to clear my head. We both do Florida Virtual School because we travel a lot for dance. The coolest place that we've ever been to for dance was L.A. It was such an amazing experience. We got to meet some amazing dancers and learn a lot of new things."
