I started dancing when I was three after my parents took me to see The Nutcracker. I have been dancing ever since. I began ballet training at Miss Joan Miller’s Palm Beach Ballet Center. I also attended Bak Middle School of the Arts and A.W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts to further my abilities and opportunities in dance.
It was in my junior year, when I began training at Paris Ballet and Dance. Under the direction of Mr. Feray, I received exceptional training. Thanks to dance, I was able to meet my amazing and supportive friends who made my time at Paris Ballet and Dance so memorable. I will miss them dearly.
In the fall, I will be attending the University of Florida. I have the many years of great dance training to thank for that. I am extremely grateful and appreciative of all that my family, friends, and teachers have done for me. Thank you all so much.
I began dancing when I was just two years old. Over the years, I auditioned and was accepted to Bak Middle School of the Arts, Dreyfoos School of the Arts, the Ailey-Fordham BFA College Program, and my absolute dream, The Juilliard School.
It was my training at Paris Ballet and Dance, which I stated in my junior year of high school that propelled me to become the dancer that I am today. Mr. Feray's exquisite training and broad knowledge inspired me to work so vigorously these past two years. Not only has Paris Ballet and Dance strengthened my dance training and helped make me more of an artist but it has also brought me closer to the lifelong friends with whom I shared classes. As I leave Palm Beach County, and enter Gainesville at The University of Florida as a double math/business major, I will hands down, miss my amazing Level Nine class the most.
Over the past few years, I have learned countless life lessons. Personally, I could not have imagined it any other way. I simply adore everyone at Paris Ballet and Dance. I can't wait to come back and visit once I'm gone. Thank you to everyone who has made such an incredible an impact on my life. Your efforts will be forever remembered and cherished.
