Mattison Bedinghaus – Viewers’ Choice Winner January 2014

I have been dancing since I was four years old. In my video I am preparing the La Esmeralda variation for the Youth America Grand Prix. Last year I attended both the YAGP in Tampa and ADC in Orlando/Daytona. This year I have participated in the YAGP in Tampa and plan on attending more later  this season. This summer will be my first summer to attend an intensive at another location.  I plan to attend the summer intensive at Next Generation Ballet in Tampa, as I earned a scholarship at the audition last month. I study ballet, jazz and contemporary. My favorite style by far is ballet.

I study at Bradenton Ballet Repertory in Bradenton, Florida. I have to give a shout-out to the best ballet teacher in the world, Allison Norton. She has made me the dancer I am today and continues to inspire me every day. I hope to one day join a major ballet company! Nothing would make me happier than being able to dance every day of my life!
