Amanda Flick is a junior and she dance at 171 Cedar Arts in Corning. Flick said,” I have been dancing for about eleven years. I do and have done tap, ballet, ballet (pointe), jazz, hip hop, and modern. I have been on my pointe shoes for three and a half years and it is my favorite type of dance. I love doing dance exercises across the floor and I enjoy doing turns and developes (when your one leg points up and out while your other is on pointe). My favorite event is the Story of Ballet because every year I get to be something new and get to spend a lot of my time my dance pals.”
For many students, dance is way to escape all the craziness going on in school and at the sametime to be healthy and happy. A lot of giggles and smiles are on everyone’s faces no matter what type of dance anyone is doing.
