Jordan Hollister - Pennsylvania Interview by Zoe D'Angelo Nomination and Photography by Thomas Kay Photography Issue 30 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
The Nomination: Jordan Hollister is by far one of the more quiet and reserved teens that I have had the pleasure to work with. Probably what is one of my favorite images in my entire portfolio is because of this incredibly talented dancer. She doesn’t make a big deal out of things, she’s incredibly humble and gracious to the opportunities around her. Since her image has made it rounds on social media, other teenagers and younger kids wanted the opportunity to be more like her.

How did you get started in dance? I began dancing when I was 3 years old. My mom signed me up for dance class and I have been dancing ever since. My mom noticed that I was always dancing around the house. I would watch shows like “So You Think You Can Dance” and I was always imitating the dancers on the show.
What is the coolest thing you have ever gotten to do as a dancer? The coolest thing I have ever gotten to do as dancer was perform with my studio on the Royal Caribbean Anthems of the Sea cruise ship in 2018. We traveled to Bermuda; I loved it, because it was a very unique experience and something that I will always remember.
If you could go on any dance or talent show out there, what would it be and why? I would pick World of Dance. I would choose this because I would get to meet other dancers and get corrections from very popular performers. I have been watching this show for about 2 years.
Have you tried any other sport than dance? If so, which one? If not, what sport would you like to try? When I was eight years old a lot of my friends were playing soccer so I gave that a try.
Why do you want to go into the medical field? I want to go into the medical field because I enjoy helping others. Being able to help others is something I always wanted to do. I'd like to study nursing and eventually become a prenatal nurse.
