Channing Giese, 7, Chicago
The Latin School of Chicago
Dance is a way of life and a true passion for Channing. She has learned that it takes discipline and perseverance and that it is never easy. Channing is proud of her dance effort, growth and accomplishments. She truly loves dance and her friends at Extensions Dance Company.
This will be her second year with the Petite Company. She is so very happy to learn from the best instructors (Lizzie and Miranda) and dance with great friends. The positive feeling of belonging to a fantastic company and being part of an outstanding team provides Channing great energy.
Channing is in her fifth year of dance at The Joffery Academy. Prior to being a member of the Petites, she danced for more than four years at other local dance studios.
Channing loves to be active and also participates in gymnastics (which gives her great physical strength and compliments her dance), swimming, ice-skating and a very active school life.
