Camille is in her fifth year with Extensions Dance Company and she is thrilled to begin another year, and to be a part of the inaugural year of Chicago City Classical Ballet. She has been dancing since she was 5, taking classes in ballet, contemporary, modern, hip hop, jazz and tap. She also was a competitive gymnast for a few years. Prior to joining Extensions, Camille took classes at and performed with two other dance studios in Chicago and she currently attends Francis W. Parker School in Chicago. Camille is grateful for Extensions because she feels like it is a real family that supports her in many ways. She is blessed to have the opportunity to learn from Lizzie Mackenzie and her amazing team of dance educators and choreographers. The many performances, master workshops, conventions, regional and national awards and scholarships she has experienced and received while at Extensions have contributed greatly to her dance education. In the summer of 2018, Camille attended the NW Dance Project Summer Intensive and prior to that, in 2017, she attended the Alonzo King Lines Ballet summer intensive on a full merit scholarship. This past summer Camille had the pleasure of attending the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago advanced summer intensive and the Elements contemporary ballet summer intensive as well. Camille also plays the trumpet and loves cooking, skiing and water sports. She has a passion for learning and even likes school! Camille wants to thank her phenomenal Extensions family and, of course, her parents and friends for all their love and support.
