Thank you for supporting Eileen Cashen.
I started dancing four years ago when I was in eighth grade.
After playing a lot of different sports, I wanted to try an activity that is more creative. I started dancing in a jazz class, then tried tap and ballet classes the next semester, and I was hooked on dance after that.
As a junior at Steamboat Springs High School, I am really excited to pursue a completion solo for the first time this year. This has been my goal for more than a year, and it presents new challenges for me beyond my other dance classes.
After high school, I can see myself dancing in some capacity throughout my adult years. There is so much more for me to learn and practice, and I especially hope to have more performance opportunities in the future.
This year, I have committed to perform a solo competition routine with the Elevation Dance Studio. This comes with a lot of personal responsibility and extra time commitments. I am also performing in Elevation’s production of the Nutcracker. My parents have been really supportive to help me with this opportunity.
I started dancing at an older age than many of my peers. As a result, I am sometimes placed in classes with younger dancers. Even though I may not be the most skilled dancer in a group, I try to be a good mentor and set a positive example with my words and actions.
