How long have you been dancing with SRL? Why SRL?
I’ve been dancing at SRL for 2 years. We heard that it was a great Irish dance school from our neighbor.
How did you get started with Irish dance?
I saw Irish dance at my cousin’s dance recital and thought it looked like fun. That fall my mom signed me up for it.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pizza! It’s my favorite.
What’s your favorite dance-related memory?
Winning three medals at the Fall Feis.
If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?
I would be a Cheetah because they are very fast and strong.
What’s your favorite thing about dancing?
My favorite thing about dance is mastering new dance steps.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
Ireland to learn more about the history of Irish dance.
What’s the best advice you can give a new or younger dancer?
Stick with it, even when you think it’s hard just keep trying and you will get.
Who do you look up to?
Mr. Christian because he is an amazing Irish dancer. I would love to be able to dance like that someday.
