Shayna is 11 years old and is a conscientious 6th grade student at Alcott College Prep. She is absolutely thrilled to be joining Extensions Dance Company this year. She began dancing when she was 2.5 years old. Shayna spent the last five years as part of Gus Giordano’s Youth Dance Company where she furthered her passion for dance and developed a foundation in jazz, tap, ballet, and contemporary. She also became well-versed in hip hop under Visceral Dance Studio’s Andrew Tamez Hull. When Shayna is not dancing at the studio, she is often dancing and choreographing at home. Her other interests outside of dance including playing volleyball and basketball with Alcott’s school teams, biking, singing, and spending time with her family and friends. She is extremely grateful to have the opportunity to continue growing under Lizzie MacKenzie and the amazing dance teachers at Extensions. In just a few short months, Shayna has felt highly welcomed and already feels part of the Extensions family.
