I have been dancing with Raena since I was three years old. My first year of dance was also Raena's first year of owning her own studio. It's crazy to think I have been with Balleraena through three different studio locations, 15 recitals, three company shows and one trip to New York. Raena has taught me so much about not only becoming the best dancer I can be, but also becoming the best person I can be. Everything I have learned from being a part of Balleraena, I will be carrying with me as I continue to the next journey of my life. I will be attending Minnesota State University, Mankato in the Fall where I will be studying Pre-Physical Therapy as well as dance. My dream is to never stop dancing! I would love to one day not only teach dance, but help with the recovery of athletes. I will never be able to repay Raena and the entire family at Balleraena for everything they have taught me.
