Shayna is thrilled to begin her third year as part of the Extensions Dance Company,. At a very young age, Shayna began dancing and immediately fell in love with the art form. Shayna enjoys a wide range of dance styles as she loves how they challenge her to improve her technique and dance expressively. Shayna’s strong work ethic and dedication is also reflected in her school life. She is an 8th grader at Alcott Elementary School where she continues to be on the ‘A’ Honor Roll. Outside of dance Shayna enjoys biking, playing volleyball, and spending time with her friends and family. Something unique about her is that she is left handed, and she loves pickles! She has a deep appreciation for Lizzie MacKenzie who creates amazing experiences for her students which challenge her to grow. She is also thankful for the entire faculty at Extensions for always pushing her to her full potential and helping her inner artist blossom.
