My name is Emma. I am 11 years old, and in the 7th grade. I have been dancing for 7 years. My biggest strength is ballet, though i love lots of other styles of dance, too. I struggle in types of modern because the movements are the exact opposite off ballet, and my dad calls it 'Hippie Dance'. So far i have found one type of modern i like. I have always wanted to tap, but my studio doesn't provide it as a class. I have been to four studios, but the one i am at now, wins overall. I dance in a higher age group than i should be in... being the youngest can be really frustrating at times, when your piers treat you like the 'baby' of the group, but it is also an awesome feeling knowing that you're the same level as people that are 3 or 4 years older than you.

This past weekend, our studio had our nutcracker try outs. I was very surprised,yet excided to find out i received the roles of Clara, and snow!! Our studio performs the nutcracker once on friday, and twice on saturday, so everyone shares there role with one other dancer. I thought it was a funny coincidence that my friend Emma Beardon got the other half of clara. Soon, we will be able to find out if which days we get the parts.
