Tap is my favorite genre because it gives me the opportunity to challenge myself physically and mentally, and I can truly show who I am as a dancer through tap.

Hip hop is my favorite because it is the style I originally started when I decide to start dance.  It inspired me to continue dancing and to try new styles.

I have learned so much, besides becoming a better dancer, I have learned to step out of my comfort zone, make new friends and that family does not always have to be blood related.

Contemporary is probably my favorite though I love all styles.

At JDC I have learned so much. More than I have at any of my other studios. I have learned the importance of teamwork, how to improve technique, and much more.

 

What are you going to miss most about JDC?

I am going to miss that feeling when you know that it’s hard work in the moment, but it will pay off on stage.
