Liliana's Story

My passion is dance.

When I was about eight years old, my mom would always turn on the radio and invite me to dance with her. I loved dancing with my mom because it brought me closer to her. When I finally entered high school, I began to have health problems and experience a lot of pressure. My only refuge from these problems was dance, which allowed me to express how I was feeling. This year, I found a cure to my health problems was to stay committed to dance.

I will develop my passion by summer classes at Edge Performing Arts Center because it will be the first time that I've attended a summer dance class in an actual competitive program. Having a professional mentor will give me feed back regarding what I'm good at or the things that I need to improve. I have no doubt this program will help me improve as a dancer and open new doors so that I can follow my dream and become a professional dancer.

A Note from Ms. Ramirez, Liliana's Mentor

"Being surrounded by other young women in a positive environment where all share a passion for dance will have an incredible impact on Lilly. Her ability to express her personality, feelings, and love for herself through dance will be nurtured and continue to grow by participating in summer classes at Edge Performing Arts Center. Liliana has demonstrated an incredible resilience and commitment to improving her health. Her love for dance has carried her through dark times, and the opportunity to take her skills and passion to the next level will give Lilly a renewed sense of purpose and excitement to keep striving to reach her goals."

Excited for Edge Performing Arts!

This summer, I will be attending Edge Performing Arts, where I will be taking hip hop classes and ballet classes. I chose this program because when I first read about it I founded very interesting and I loved the dance classes they offered. Also, the studio is really pretty. I'm really looking forward to attending Edge. This will be the first time I'll be attending to a dance academy, and I'm very excited. Most of all, I'm very excited for my hip hop classes! I can't wait to learn new choreographies and have so much fun with new people. I'm really looking forward to having the best summer ever at Edge.
