Alex Byun started dancing with Foundations in spring of his second year. He joined NSU Modern this winter.

When Byun was on Foundations, he spent many hours in the Wooden Center alone, just to get in extra practice.

''Dance is inherently kind of strange.'' Byun said.

''There’s a different degree of control and self freedom – you can do what you want when you’re doing it on your own,'' Byun added.

''Most of the time people aren’t paying attention. That isn’t a good or bad thing – you just have to realize that,'' he said.

''It’s really cool when I’m in that zone ... and I completely forget what day it is and my responsibilities for the day. That is all there is,'' he added.

''When I am dancing, when I’m really in the moment, that’s really the only important thing in the world.''

Going to a competition for the first time this spring with NSU Modern is something Byun said he can check off his bucket list.
