Channing Giese is 11 years old and in the 6th grade. This will be Channing’s 6th year dancing at Extensions Dance and her first year as a Junior Company member. She is so grateful to learn from the amazing dance instructors at Extensions and to dance with her best friends.
Channing began dancing at the age of two when her Mom enrolled her in dance class and she has been dancing ever since. Her favorite dance genres are ballet and contemporary. She completed six years of dance training at the Joffrey Academy of Dance while also dancing at extensions and attended two of their summer programs. She has also attended Houston ballet, Ballet West and ABT summer intensives. Channing’s personal inspirational quote is “Life is about using the whole box of crayons”. If she could go back in time and give herself dance advice it would be “I should always push really hard even if it is hard”. Her most challenging moment was when she hurt her foot and then had to catch up and learn all the choreography for her dances. Channing loves dancing on stage and performing for people. It make her feel so happy and free!
Channing has a lot of energy and when she is not dancing, she enjoys doing hair and makeup, watching Dance Mom’s and YouTube. Her favorite food is a bagel and cream cheese and she likes Starbucks refreshers.
