Fiona is a Junior at Trinity High School in River Forest. This is her third year at Extensions and first year in the Senior company. Fiona took her first dance class at age 2, focusing on classes in ballet, contemporary and jazz. She has been enjoying the variety of classes that Extensions offers, adding hip hop and now tap, to her training and she was a competitive Irish Dancer for four years, prior to joining Exetensions.
Fiona has attended the Milwaukee Ballet summer program in the past and this summer, she attended the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago Advanced Intensive as well as DanceWorks Chicago’s summer intensive under the direction of Julie Nakagawa and Sara Bibik. Upon completing the DanceWorks Chicago summer intensive, Fiona was personally invited to attend the invite only, ChoreoLab where she worked with Hanna Brictson.
Fiona is looking forward to another great year with Extensions and now the Chicago City Classical Ballet as well. She loves being on stage and performing, and is so thrilled to be at a studio with other dancers that share her dedication and enthusiasm for dance. Lizzie and her team of instructors are outstanding and Fiona is grateful for their training and support.
