Dancer of the Month May 2016

My name is Emily Hamilton. I am a senior at McDowell High School.
I have been taking dance at Miss Jacie's School of Dance for 15 years. I have taken ballet, tap, jazz and hip hop classes. I have learned so much from Miss Jacie. Being part of dance classes have not only taught me how to dance, but, has also provided many opportunities. I have been involved in Relay for Life, the YMCA Healthy Kids Day, and dance competitions. I had the opportunity to attend Carolina Dance Masters. I took a class with Broadway play performer and then  watched him perform in the Broadway play, Newsies.

I was able to visit New York City three different times. I met talent scout Peter Sklar and was able to attend his workshop in New York. My dance team participated in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2013. I was Dancer of the year in 2014. This year my Concert Class received a High Gold rating and the White Lightning Senior Champion Award, the highest award at the competition.
Growing up taking dance has enriched my life in so many ways.
Thank you Miss Jacie!
