Natalia Duran – Viewers’ Choice Nov 2014

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.
