Thank you so much for this scholarship! I have been dancing for fifteen years. I study dance at New World School of the Arts and Artistic Soul Studios in Miami Florida. I primarily study ballet, contemporary, jazz and modern but my favorite style would be contemporary and modern dance.
The best advice I would give to younger dancers is to work hard and never give up on yourself.
This summer I will be attending Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and during the academic year I will be studying dance at Marymount Manhattan College. I am very excited to study dance in these wonderful cities. My future goals are to continue dancing in a professional dance company and because of this scholarship, I am one step closer to my dreams becoming reality.
