Kaelah's Story

My passion is dance. I've always loved to dance since I was 3 years old. My mom took me to ballet and gymnastics classes when I was 5. Everyone notices that I'm always dancing no matter what: I dance when I eat, I dance when I'm talking, I'm dancing as I type this now. There's just never a moment when I'm not dancing. In middle school as soon as I found out they had clubs I immediately joined the hip hop/step dance club and African dance. My 8th grade year a group of my friends and I created a flash mob to perform at certain school events. Also when I'm bored, my brother, cousin and I pick one our favorite songs to create a dance to and perform it for our family members.

Attending 92Y "Broadway, Here I Come!" Summer Vocal Institute will help me pursue my passion for dance by helping me become confident performing in front of many people. This opportunity will boost my professionalism in and outside of dance not only making me a better dancer, but a better person. This opportunity can also open thousands of doors for me and I plan on taking my dream to dance to the farthest. I love to dance, but I believe my love for dance will grow even more when I attend the program.

A Note from Ms. McNeil, Kaelah's Coach

Kaelah is a great candidate for 92Y "Broadway, Here I Come!" Summer Vocal Institute because she is extremely talented, charismatic, and hard working. She gives her all to everything she commits to. From academics to dance to cheerleading, Kaelah has performed above average in all areas. She is a leader amongst her peers in all settings and works hard to be a positive role model for her younger bother. She is open to feedback and has a beautiful personality that could definitely light up a room. Kaelah would truly benefit from the experience and the exposure to a different environment and a positive group of people. I am confident that Kaelah will put 100% into the program.
