Alima Means More Than Just Dance To Me

Alima Means More Than Just Dance To Me

"Those who can't dance say the music is no good" - Jamaican proverb


Alima means to me a group of individuals who love to dance and love each other.

I love being a part of such a great group on campus. Not only have I made such great friends in this group, but I've made some awesome memories too with these amazing people. Every year we get new people who bring different things to the table, which just adds to the experience.

Dancing has always been fun for me, but during college, it has become so much more. It has become an outlet for me during the stressful days of college. I can go to practice to dance a bunch in order to relieve my stress or forget about my worries. Alima has become a place where I go to dance, and that is it. I focus on dancing and try to shut out any worries or anxieties that I might have. Most of the time I end up forgetting what I was even stressed about.

Another thing that I love about this club is all the different kinds of dances that we do. Since we do dances from different cultures, it's also a learning experience. I learn actual choreography from those countries, like how cool is that! I can pull out some awesome moves whenever I go out to dance or at a dance party.

I've had such a positive experience with Alima. I love it and I'm so glad I joined my freshman year. I've learned a lot about myself through it, which has made me grow as a person. Everyone there has helped me in this growth, which makes it even more special. They are all so welcoming and loving. They are like a second family.

I think it's important for people to find something that they love to do, and to be involved whether you're in college, high school, or working; get involved somehow, especially in physical activities, to grow with people together.

It's definitely true what they say: that exercise makes you happier, and a happy wife means a happy life.

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.

6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.

13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.

14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.

You're finally back to your old self.

10 Reasons I'm Chandler And Phoebe's Love Child

I'm the walking depiction of the combination of two of your favorite "friends."



1. I'm always talking.

The GIF basically does the explaining for me..


2. People who can't be independent annoy me.

This GIF basically covers this one too..


3. I have impeccable dance moves...  

....or rather the lack thereof


4. Slight temper may be an understatement.

I could make a sailor blush if I wanted to. Thanks for the extensive vocabulary, mom!


5. I tend to make jokes during serious moments..

...or really any time


6. Ever so slightly perverted

I could make basically anything perverted with a look, sound, or phrase to add onto it. It's a gift.



Doesn't matter the time, occasion, or mood. I can always find a reason to yell this. And yes, sometimes I do say it like Chandler.


8. What I mean 90% of the time when friends invite me to something.

​Sorry girls😂😅


9. Low-key (but no so low-key) clumsy.

Okay, high-key. The other day I face planted because I tripped over nothing. On the bright side, if I wanted a part in a horror movie, I've already got that part down!


10. And then there's the obvious reason

I may be weird and a lot to handle, but all in all, I'm pretty awesome.
