Aidan Wolf - January 2017 Judges' Choice

 I LOVE DANCE! My favorite style of dance is contemporary without a doubt, followed by lyrical and ballet, however I really love jazz and hip hop as well.  I have been dancing since the age of 2 and a half. I am now 12 years old so I have been dancing for 10 years.

I have always loved to move freely to music. I love to express a story with movement and share that story with others. I'm inspired by the fact you have to be so "real" when you dance and the fact that you constantly strive for that moment of perfection, awe, and uniqueness.

My video is an audition piece. It was choreographed by Victoria Quintana.

I have competed in dance competitions for the past 5 years and love and appreciate the benefits of competitions and conventions, namely seeing what other dancers are doing as well as the pleasure and experience of performing on stage. I am not competing this year as these competitions are extremely expensive, however, we are trying to save up for an amazing, educational, dance intensive this summer.

In the future, I hope to become an amazing, true and inspiring contemporary dancer with a company like Hubbard Street, Alonzo King Lines, Complexions, NDT, Shaping Sound or Joffrey to name a few. I also hope to develop skills in choreography to create works of my own once I can no longer dance professionally.

Thank you so much for this honor. I appreciate it greatly and wish you all the best for a wonderful 2017!
