Thank you so much for this scholarship. I'm so excited and honored to be recognized by Harlequin Floors and The World Dances. I currently dance at The World of Dance Studio in Jacksonville, Florida and Douglas Anderson School of the Arts. I have been dancing since I was 3. I love experiencing all forms of dancing, but my heart is with ballet. I would really like to thank my teachers Linda Surrency and Janet Sydnor for always believing in me and pushing me to the next level. I dream of one day of being a professional ballet dancer so I can share my passion of the art with the audience. I enjoy competing throughout the year at various dance competitions. The Chairman's Waltz was performed at Hollywood Connections in Atlanta where I received platinum. I would like to tell other dancers who want to participate in a dance competition to be confident and show the judges that you are passionate about your dancing.
Thanks again. I really appreciate this.
