T’khara Jones and her younger sister KhaTera Jones wanted to take dance lessons.
Their older sister won gymnastics and dance trophies, and they had an aunt whose dancing mesmerized them.
"I just thought, 'Wow that looks so much fun, it just looks beautiful," says T'khara. "I always wanted to do it."
Same went for KhaTera, a year behind her in school.
"One of my friends took dance classes and I thought it was really cool. When I first started wanting to take dance classes, it was maybe fourth or fifth grade."
