Kevin's first encounter with Flare was during the O-Week of his first year of university (2015). After witnessing a breathtaking performance, he, along with several other fresh-out-of-high-school friends, was inspired (coerced) to join. They all whipped out their cash and signed up that very day. Riding the waves of this newly found passion, he went on to attend his first ever dance class during Flare's Welcome Week. Following this success, he proceeded to not attend a single class for the remaining 10 months of 2015.
2016 however, was a different story. After spending the entirety of his first year studying and striving for nothing but grades, he felt he needed something more in his life. He wanted to throw himself into something completely unrelated to academics and what better way to fulfil that goal than joining that dance club from first year in which he'd had zero participation? So once again, in the year 2016, Kevin whipped out his cash and signed himself up.
This time however, Kevin genuinely wanted to participate. So he went to classes, practised routines, tried out for gigs and somehow he found himself a part of three amazing performances. And although some of the most nerve-wracking, heart-pumping and all round terrifying experiences of his life, they were some of the most rewarding. But it wasn't just rewarding in the sense that he could improve from a fumbling mess to something relatively stage-worthy, it was also because in the process of going to classes, rehearsing and just simply "giving it a shot", he was able to meet so many people who he now consider as some of his closest friends.
