I danced competitively in all genres for 5 years at Studio Bleu Dance Center, with my favorite genres being jazz and open. Last year, I fell in love with rhythmic gymnastics and have been training and competing in USAG rhythmic gymnastics at Prestige Rhythmic Gymnastics Academy. My favorite apparatus is ball and I can’t wait to also compete with ribbon and clubs next season.
