Have you danced in any competitions
Yes, I have danced in many, many competitions. I have danced in so many competitions I couldn’t count them. Competitions are one of the many reasons I love dance. I love the feeling of being on stage performing and dancing together with my team.
What ballets have you performed in? In what role?
I have not preformed in any professional ballets but my studios have had ballet showcases and I have been in all of them with my team. We are usually included in 3 dances in the ballets. And we dance on flat and en pointe.

I have been on youth shift. Shift is a professional dance company and I have danced with them in the youth group for 2 years now. In fact we just recently had our shows. So I preformed in the 4 shows that they had recently and the 5 shows that they had last year. I have also preformed in parades and other showcases.
What are your favorite hobbies, other than dance?
Outside of dance I don’t have many hobbies but I do quite a bit of golfing and tumbling. I have also been taking French since 1st grade so I guess u could consider that a hobby. But I prefer to be dancing over anything else.

I have many goals for dance, I would like to improve my flexibility and my confidence. I would also like to strengthen my ballet technique.
