Name: Christina H.
Dancer at SRL: Aubrielle
How long has your family been with SRL?
How did you pick your dancer’s name?
Aubrey and Brielle were our two favorite girl names, so I put them together and that’s how she became Aubrielle.
Why Irish dance?
Aubrielle has been doing other types of dance for years but Irish dance is beautiful and unique.
What’s your favorite dance-related memory?
When Aubrielle was 4 years old she was up on stage for her recital and throughout her entire jazz dance she had the biggest frown on her face. She did a great job dancing, but that frown had her father and I laughing throughout the entire number.
What did you want to be when you grew up when you were little? Why?
When I was little, I wanted to be a waitress when I grew up because waitresses were so nice, and they always served my favorite food.
Favorite winter family activity?
Our favorite winter activity is snow tubing in our backyard.
What advice would you give parents who are looking to try out Irish dance?
If your child loves to dance, they should try Irish dance. It is different than any other style of dance.
How do you think dance has positively affected your dancer?
Dance has built her confidence and has opened her up to experiencing new things.
What’s the most important quality to have in life?
The most important quality to have is courage. If you have courage, nothing will hold you back from achieving your dreams.
