Dahlia

My name is Dahlia, and this is my second year on the comp team at GLS! I'm competing in all three styles of dance, ballet, jazz, and tap, but tap is definitely one of my favourites! I LOVE competing because it makes me work hard and I learn a lot by watching my friends and dancers from other studios. Also, I enjoy spending time with my comp friends.

I've been dancing since I was 3 and joined the competitive team when I was 7. What I like most about GLS is dancing with my friends and learning from the wonderful teachers. I love tap, jazz, ballet, and lyrical, and like learning new styles from guest teachers! This year, I'm looking forward to my solos, dancing with my teammates, as well as dancing with my big sister Ella.
