The 2022-2023 season marks Gefen’s seventh and final year with Extensions Dance Company. She has been dancing since the age of two and has found a true ‘home away from home’ at Extensions Dance Center. She loves the focus and commitment she shares with her fellow company members and is so grateful to be dancing alongside them. Gefen is in the 12th grade at Francis W. Parker School in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. When she’s not at school or dance, she’s playing with her dogs, spending time with friends and family, or sleeping. She would like to thank Lizzie Mackenzie and Lauren Brown for the amazing opportunity to be part of Extensions Dance Company, and for helping her to grow not only as a dancer but also as a person. Gefen has enjoyed working with and learning from so many talented teachers and choreographers. She would also like to thank her parents for supporting her through everything.
