I am extremely thankful for being chosen as a recipient of the Judges Choice Scholarship from Harlequin floors! I have been studying dance for 12 years at Performer's Edge Dance Center, in Davenport, FL. I study ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, acro and contemporary. My favorite is contemporary, but I recently realized how much I enjoy classic Fosse!
I find it is very important to be a versatile dancer that can pick up different styles of choreography. I would like to thank my teacher Amie Holborn for that. She always emphasizes the importance of versatility. I would also like to thank the choreographer of my routine to "Old Skin", Miss Courtney Eierman. Her work is very inspiring and I truly love performing it. My favorite thing about conventions and competitions is making friends from other studios near and far. I know someday I will have the pleasure of working with some of them!
Thank you again for awarding me the March Judges Choice Scholarship. It will help allow me to attend NYCDA Nationals this summer!
