“My goal is to find myself and figure out how to spread peace and love to all mankind. Right now dance is the most meaningful thing for me because I can show love and share positive energy through it. I like to move, I like to be physical, I like to release positive energy, and I can grab it from people and pass it to other people through dance. Dance changed me. Originally dance was an escape from a poor childhood where I was busy taking care of my little brothers. I came from a poor family with an abusive step father, so for me dance was an escape from school, family, and everything I didn’t like about my life. I really want to inspire other people to love everyone. Everyone wants happiness and love. If I can inspire some people, they can inspire other people, and that’s how it spreads. We don’t need much, we just need to understand how to be kind, happy, and spread love. It’s an ultimate goal and I might not ever reach it, but it’s definitely something to push for.” - Christopher “Push” Costa, dancer I’m really enjoying this weekend’s @Instagram hashtag project, because it’s forcing me to be creative and get to know other people on a much deeper level. #whptodayimet #dance #makeportraits (at PMT Dance Studio)
