Dejana began dance classes at 18 months old. This is her third year with a dance company, and her first year as an Extensions Company member. Dejana has fallen in love with all of her instructors at Extensions, and she is very excited to learn from them, and grow as a dancer this year.
Dejana’s favorite style of dance is Contemporary. She says that working one-on-one with Miss Lizzie is “like a dream come true”. She is so inspired by her, and works very hard to make her proud. She is grateful for Miss Lizzie taking her on as a Petite Company member, and is loving the bond she’s creating with her group. Dejana is also in a Serbian Folklore Dance group that performs many weekends at various locations throughout the midwest.
When Dejana grows up, she wants to move to New York City and become a famous dance instructor. In her spare time, Dejana is still dancing, improv-ing to “sad music”, playing school and dress-up, and bossing her older sisters around.
