Kelly Guerrero - December 2017 Viewers' Choice

I am currently a dance major at Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts in Connecticut. There, I train in mainly ballet and modern. I would like to thank all of my teachers there for helping me grow immensely, and my family for always supporting my dancing. This year will be my 14th year dancing, but my first composition class was only three years ago. This piece was created for my senior composition class at school, and I performed it in front of my department.

I am inspired to dance because I it allows me to relax and forget about everything else. Since I have discovered my passion for choreography I have also found another way to express myself. This is my senior year of high school, and next year I want to go to college to receive my BFA in dance, and also minor in arts management. After college I hope to dance professionally and also freelance with my choreography. 
 
Thank you so much for this opportunity! I am going to use this scholarship to help fund my trip to the National High School Dance Festival this year!
