Why Walk When You Can Dance?


Story By: Bo Bearman

     Krizia is a dancer in many forms. She started dancing when she was three years old. “When I was three years old, I started off by doing ballet, tap, and musical theatre.” Krizia said. As she continued to dance, she progressed and got into bigger forms of dance.Krizia adds that “As I began progressing in dance, I started to do jazz, contemporary, lyrical, and hip hop along with the styles I had already been doing.” Krizia is on a competitive dance team at Elite Dance Center.

“The dance team is really devoted and hardworking. This year our team won first place with a platinum scoring in our whole division! It was super important to me and something I will truly never forget.” Krizia added. Her favorite style is contemporary or lyrical. Krizia has always wanted to dance, and doesn’t plan on quitting any time soon. “In the future I would love the opportunity to teach a dance class as a part time job.” Krizia said. Whenever Krizia is stressed or has a lot going on in her life, she can always rely on dance as her outlet. When she got first place this year, Krizia says that “I was shocked and really excited because I didn’t think my team would place at all.”  In a typical week, Krizia dances around four hours at the studio but she practices everyday. She jokingly ends with that if you see her with earbuds in, “there’s a 99% chance I’m dancing in my head!”
