VSU Modern is a dance team based at UCLA, founded on the principles of teaching all who have a passion or desire to, to dance. It is also the dance team that defined my college career. I joined it at the ripe and impressionable age of 17 upon going to UCLA and from that point, they changed my life. From teaching me to dance, getting me more in shape than ever before, and even helping me through the very difficult and trying times of my transition from adolescent to adulthood, VSU Modern was more than a dance team to me, they were a family.
