12th Grade, OH
My academics have always been a priority in my life. My education was made important by the influence of my family, friends and teachers. During grade school I attended a gifted education program. Throughout my junior and senior high school years, I took college prep, honors and AP courses. I presently have a 3.9 unweighted GPA, 4.28 weighted GPA and received a 28 on my ACT. I am a National Honor Society Member and have received recognition for Perfect Attendance, Student of the Month, Honor Roll, Excellence in Spanish, Math and English, and was honored with the Principal's Special Recognition Award in Academic Excellence.
I am a fifteen year student at Next Generation Dance. I study Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Modern, Acrobatic Dance, Tap, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop and Pointe. I have competed regionally and nationally in small and large competition groups, as well as a soloist. For the last two years, I have been a student at Butler Tech School of the Arts. My dance studies include Jazz, Lyrical, Modern, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Ballet, as well as Vocal and Theatre classes. Most of my Academics are done on online. I am a student at The Miami Valley Ballet Theatre where I study Ballet and Pointe. I have had a role in their production of The Nutcracker for the last two years.
I have been a dance teacher assistant at Next Generation Dance for five years. I work approximately five hours a week teaching students Ballet, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Acrobatic Dance and Lyrical, as they prepare for their end of the year recital. I have also been employed at Kings Island Amusement Park every fall for the last three years as a dancer in the Fear Fest Show "Hot Blooded." I work for two months each year for 16 to 20 hours a week. I have just been hired for the 2013 summer at Kings Island Amusement Park as a dancer in the "70's" Show. I will be working for four months, six days a week.
