Why Gabriella wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

As a child we often don’t think about other children becoming sick, or not being able to do what other children are able to do. As a dancer, we often take for granted our own lives and abilities that others are not fortunate to have. The beauty of dance is a way to express ourselves through the body and music, children with cancer have the ability to escape their illness, even for a brief two minutes, by putting them into the world of dance. I want to bring the awareness of cancer to the dance world. When I think that I can’t keep pushing, I want to express that I can, because someone else out there wishes they could. Dance allows us to express our heart and body in a way words can not.
