Meet the Xtreme Junior Team
Hi, I’m Ella! I am 11 years old and in the 5th grade. I have been dancing at DOB for four years and this is my second year on the Xtreme Team. My main team is Dancin’ Diamonds and my favorite style of dance is lyrical. My dance goals are to improve turns and musicality. When I’m not dancing, I like to play with friends, family, and my dog. I love to dance because I can see friends that I don’t get to see at school. I also love to perform on stage. I’m excited to start a great new year!
I have been dancing for 7 years. My favorite style of dance is Jazz and Lyrical. My biggest dance inspiration is my mom. She is always pushing me to be my best and encourages me to work hard and practice. This year, I am in Dancin’ Diamonds. This year I will accomplish better technique and left splits. I am hoping that I will get a lot better this year and do better at competition. I love dancing because it feels so free and when I dance all I can think about are the movements. It is also really fun and the teachers are really good. They always encourage everyone to work hard, practice, and do your best. They also care so much about each student. That is why I love dance.

My name is Elaina! I have been dancing for five years and I am going on my sixth. My favorite styles of dance are lyrical and musical theater. My biggest inspiration would have to be my friends and family, because they always make me want to keep going and do better. This year I am in the Dancin Diamonds and I am going to accomplish my turns, aerial, and tap. When I dance, I feel like I’m just doing what I love most, even when it gets hard. Trust me! I have cried way too many times. Dance helps me get over my anxiety and is just plain fun. I forget about everything when I dance. The music pulls me in and doesn’t let me go until it is over. I also love to act and sing. I've had the opportunity to perform in 6 musicals! Overall, I have to say that dance is what I love most.

I love pushing myself to get better at my flexibility and my turns. My family has said I am a sassy diva since I can remember and I love to express that on the dance floor. This year I’m in the Diamonds and I can’t wait to see where this year takes me.
Hello, my name is Brynn and I’m 11 years old. I may seem extroverted at times but I would say I'm more of an introvert. I have been dancing since I was 3 and these past 8 years have been a blast. I got to know my teachers and teammates, I also made friends that are very important to me. Contemporary and tap are my favorite styles of dance. A few things that I like are music, dance, anime, reading, and baking. I dislike big crowds, fake friends, and loud noises. I am really excited to improve my dancing this year!
