I am also involved in Youth Kinetic and am playing the role of Marcie in the Peanuts. My all time favorite dancer is Misty Copeland! Her story is very inspiring and I have two of her books.
I'm Aysia and this is my second year at Applause. This will be my second year on Company and my sixth year dancing. I'm a freshman at G-E-T High School, and am also on the school's dance team. Some things I do outside of dance is hang out with friends, play with my two cats, and I do all the other usual teenage things. One thing I would like to do this year is to break out of my personality more.

I have 4 cats and 1 dog and when I'm not dancing I enjoy being with my friends from Onalaska Middle School. I love being on Applause Company because it's like a giant family. This year my goals are to gain confidence and learn choreography faster.
