Princeton University junior Colby Hyland fell in love with dance when he was 8 years old. He was participating in gymnastics when a ballet class required for cross-training inspired him to pursue dance instead. Now, 12 years later, the Massachusetts native is majoring in molecular biology and pursuing a certificate in dance.

Dance is an outlet where Hyland says he feels most confident and in his element.

"Dance for me …[is] just this different type of expression during the day that you really can't get anywhere else," Hyland said. "Especially here at Princeton, I've found that it's such a great outlet to really release and just kind of explore ideas or emotions."
