The 2018-2019 season marks Gefen’s third year at Extensions Dance Company. Gefen has found a true ‘home away from home’ at Extensions. She loves the focus and commitment she shares with her fellow company members, and is so grateful to be dancing alongside them. Gefen’s 2017-2018 season was cut short due to a ruptured ACL and torn meniscus. She’s worked very hard to get back to dancing after surgery and is thrilled to be a part of the teen company this year.Outside of the studio, Gefen loves to hang out with her dogs and spend time with friends. She is in the 8th grade at Near North Montessori School in Chicago.
She would like to thank Lizzie Mackenzie for this amazing opportunity and for helping her to grow not only as a dancer, but also as a person. She would also like to thank her parents for supporting her through everything.
