What skills have you learned from dance that have helped you in college/life?
Favorite dance memory/role/performance:
Biggest challenge that you have overcome while dancing?
I have overcome a couple of injuries, which have always posed a huge challenge. It is really hard to stop doing what you love for even two weeks to let your body rest and heal, but it is definitely necessary. In high school, I had a lot of knee issues from also running cross country, and last semester I hurt my back and had to take some time off to let myself heal. It’s tough, but worth it in the end.
What do you miss most about life at the studio?
Definitely getting to see and spend time with some amazing dancers and teachers basically every day! It was always great coming after school and catching up with the girls I didn’t get to see in school. I also miss the constant progress, learning choreography, preparing for a performance, doing a fun new project (like Choreography for a Cause to benefit Storybook Farm), etc.
