Michelle gives The World Dances a glimpse into her dancing life:
"Thank you for selecting my video for a scholarship. That is very exciting! I am the second oldest of 8 kids (6 are girls and they all dance) so this is very helpful.
I have been dancing since I was 2 years old. I dance 6 days a week, and I take ballet, contemporary and tap. I like ballet the best and would love to be a professional ballet dancer someday for a major company. What motivates me to dance is the opportunity to perform--I love to be on stage! I dance at the North Jersey School of Dance Arts in Hackettstown, NJ. My teachers are Luba Gulyaeva, who is from Russia and has danced with Baryshnikov, and Christine Taylor, who grew up dancing at SAB and is the director of our school. They are strict in a nice way and they really help me with my technique. I appreciate all their help."
