What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? I dance with Elevate Dance Center in Vacaville. Most of my dance training has been in ballet and en pointe, but for the past two years I have been training in hiphop, lyrical, and jazz. This will be my second year on the lyrical competition team. I will be competing with a lyrical group dance, a lyrical solo, and a lyrical trio. At Elevate, I am also a teachers assistant for a ballet and hiphop class.
What else would you like to talk about? I have had a love for dance and art ever since I was little. I have pursued dance and really enjoy performing on stage. I’ve taken several art classes and mostly enjoy drawing and painting.
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be and why? \ I am passionate about all types of dance. I would love to talk about the benefits of dance including self-confidence, self care, growth mindset, and building strong relationships with peers and adults.
