For my first event that I attended, I went to a performance of Tal: Beyond Imagination. What I thought was just going to be another run of the mill performance turned into one of the most inspiring moments I’ve had on campus to date. From the very first moment the show began, I was absolutely entranced. Each costume, prop, and movement left me spellbound, and I vowed to one day be strong enough to do the same. I used to be a dancer and dabbled in aerial, and seeing these incredible athletes perform in such graceful choreography inspired me to pursue this activity myself. I started exercising with my roommate and stretching daily, in hopes of one day being able to achieve the beautiful stunts the performers executed so fluidly. I don’t know if I would have attended the show if not for this activity assignment, but I am so grateful that I did.
