I have come to the conclusion of my junior year of high school. I have completed three performances throughout the school year that have now brought me to what I have been most excited for. Last December I performed in the Nutcracker, early this spring I preformed in Cinderella, and just this past weekend I performed in my studios annual recital. Through these past months I took classes in New York City and went to many auditions for different summer intensives to take part in during my summer of 2016. In a little over two weeks I will be leaving for University of North Carolina School of Arts Comprehensive Dance Intensive. Many HS students would think of summer as the time to hang out with there friends and have fun, but dance is my passion. Having a good summer from my point of view is the idea of dancing the majority of the time. I will be spending 5 weeks in North Carolina dancing for many hours each day, building my technique in the art I love. I am very enthused to be expanding my horizons in the art of dance. Besides the dancing, I am excited to meet new people and live a life in a different city. When returning from UNCSA I will continue my dance education at my local dance studio preparing for my college auditions beginning in September. I am very privileged to be going away for the majority of my summer to do what I love. I am very excited to see what the future will bring.
