Fiona, born and raised in the city of Chicago, is going into her fifth year of study with Extensions Dance Company and is honored to move up to the Junior Company this year! In the fall of 2014 at age 8, Fiona had the opportunity to come to Extensions and study under her mentor Lizzie MacKenzie, joining the petite group where she found her passion and desire to dive more deeply into the art of dance after studying at Joffrey ballet as a young girl for 2 years. In fall 2015 she was excited to become a company member of Extensions Too!, working harder than ever to grow in her study of dance and self expression. Fiona is a 6th grader currently at Beaubien Elementary and turning 12 years old September 2018. She enjoyed summer intensives with Extensions and Elements Contemporary Ballet focusing on the development of improv and technique in ballet, jazz and contemporary dance. She is thrilled to start this year on pointe for the first time and feels drawn to the art of ballet! Fiona loves dance because she can truly assert herself and finds that it is a way to release her inner voice and reveal emotion, strength and vulnerability. In addition to her passion for dance, her favorite pastime is hanging out on aerial silks, singing and playing piano and guitar with her father.
