What is your favorite dance-related memory? There are so many. Growing up being a Just Dancer was so rewarding, fun, and memorable. Working with all the genius choreographers that we got to work with pushed me as a dancer to be better every day! I got to dance alongside my best friends and family. Doing a duet with my best friend my senior year was so incredible. Becoming versatile and being pushed by every amazing teacher and dancer around me is something I will never forget!
