I am interested in music and generally most of the arts. This includes violin, painting, flute, writing, and pottery. There are numerous reasons why I value dance. One example, is how much it has taught me and improved my skills, not just in class but also in day to day life. It has taught me memorization skills, discipline, and so much more. Finally, I was accepted into AAB and I will be attending it this summer which I am quite excited for. A goal of mine was to get into a summer intensive which I am thrilled to have accomplished.

Gigi is a visual artist at heart, and she plans to become a professional illustrator. Her dance training gives her a strong foundation for figure drawing, especially when she's trying to capture figures in motion
