Miss Hannah began her dancing lessons at the tender age of three. Her best friend had begun taking lessons and Hannah just had to join her. She fell in love and has never taken a break from dancing, since. In an essay Hannah wrote about her love for dance, she says: “Dance is something I do for myself. I love the feeling of finally performing a dance that I have worked on for a year. I love the satisfaction that I did it on my own, with my self determination to keep working on it even when it seems impossible!”
Hannah’s first teacher was Scharmaine Lakstins. Hannah also studied with Pam Keown and currently Hannah is studying ballet with Miss Becky both privately and in class. Hannah also began studying modern with Lauren Beirne and will continue studying modern at Ballerinas with Miss Kristen, Miss McKenzie and at the Modus Dance Theater.
Miss Hannah performed as a soloist and principal dancer with the Indianapolis Youth Ballet.
Miss Hannah’s goals are to continue to refine and strengthen her dancing technique in preparation for a dance major program in college. This is all for the purpose of becoming the best dance teacher she can become as well as business woman in the hopes of opening her own dance studio in the future!
Hannah wants to thank her mother Shiela, her biggest fan, for making it possible for dance to be such a big part of her life!!! Shiela is a true cheerleader setting the example for students and parents alike in always being supportive and encouraging to everyone.
Miss Hannah is currently attending the Mason Gross School of the Performing Arts at Rutgers University where she was awarded a $40,000 scholarship for excellence in academics and talent. Miss Hannah will be having input with our yearly performances as well as making guest appearances while she is attending college.
Miss Becky is very happy to have Miss Hannah on her team!!!
