For their year-end competition in 2015, an Illinois high school dance team made an unusual pick for the soundtrack that they based their routine on.
Instead of energetic dance music, the team of 14 dancers from Mahomet-Seymour High School chose something that inspired them with its words.
Team coach Margaret Miller explained in a video the story behind how the collaboration came together. In part, the speech reads:
I’ll ask you again, what room does fear have when I step out of the darkness and I’ll bask in the light. When I let the past be the past and the future has no limits, when they can talk all they want but their opinion doesn’t matter. And when failure is nothing more and nothing less than the road by which I walk my path to success.
I’ll ask you one last time – what room does fear have when I make room for love? What are you afraid of?
What are you afraid of?
