What was your Center Stage journey?
My Center Stage journey was a truly unforgettable one. Not only have I been able to meet lifelong friends, create amazing memories, and express myself through dance, but I was also able to truly build a second home. My time at Center Stage has taught me many lessons that I will carry with me.
You and Lauren are going to be the first company members to graduate from the Ocean studio. Do you feel like a trailblazer?
I guess I do feel a little like a trailblazer. It is kind of cool but also a little nerve racking.
Why dance? It’s a big commitment. What do you get from it, and what do you bring to it that makes it special for you?
Dance has always been what makes me happiest. Whether I am in class, on stage, or dancing around in my kitchen. Since a very young age dance has always allowed me to be true to myself and to show my emotions. It is definitely a big commitment but I cannot imagine my life without dance.
Do you do other outside of school activities?
During free time I volunteer with a variety of organizations and work. I am very active in my school, Ocean Township High School. I am a class officer, in National Honors Society, the President of Mock Trial club, and also participate in gardening club.
What’s your favorite movie and why?
It’s hard to say I but one of my favorites is The Blind Side because it is based on a true story and is heartwarming.
