Calista is a 1st grader at Telpochcalli Dual Language School. She is so excited to join the Extensions dance family as a Petite Company member this year! Calista started taking ballet in “mommy & me” classes at 12months old and every year after that until taking a break from dance classes during the shut-down. It was then that she joined her brother in martial arts training in Muay Thai and boxing and has done that for the last 2yrs… but her heart led her back to dance and she asked her parents to enroll her in the 2021 Petite summer intensive at Extensions and that was it! She was so excited to have found friends who share her passion for creative movement at Extensions that she decided to focus exclusively on dance and joined as a Petite Company member. Her favorite dance classes are Ballet with Lizzie and tap with Mr. Cam!
When Calista is not dancing some of her favorite things to do are: chasing the pet cat, asking her mom a million questions during car rides, bike riding with her dad, watching anime with her big brother or she can be found deeply immersed in imagination games, playing dolls in her dollhouse and adventuring on nature hikes with her family. She is also team: all things sparkly!
Calista is excited to perform with the Petite company and continue to develop her dance skills alongside her new friends at Extensions who share her love for all things dance!
