Name: Madison T.
How long have you been dancing with SRL? Why SRL?
This is my 2nd year. I started in the fall of 2019 as a beginner. We found out about SRL when we went to a performance at the Enfield Public Library, and loved watching the dancers.
How did you get started with Irish dance?
I went to a trial class at the studio and wanted to come back because it was so much fun.
Who do you look up to?
What's your favorite dance-related memory?
The first day of my very first class. I loved my teacher!
What do you want to be when you grow up? Why?
A singer. I love singing and making up songs.
What's your favorite thing about dancing?
I love learning new steps.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
Florida. It's super warm, and I love it there. Plus, I was born in Tampa.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Homemade mac and cheese. That's my favorite meal.
What's the best advice you can give a new or younger dancer?
Always do your best, and keep practicing whenever you can so you don't forget your steps!
