Fiona Doyle, 11, Chicago
Jean Baptiste Beaubien Elementary School (Chicago)
Fiona Doyle is in her fourth year of study with Extensions Dance Company. She started her dance training at Aerial Dance Chicago at the age of 3, introduced to ballet classes weekly with Nancy Teinowitz at age 5, and at 7 yrs old joined the Joffrey Academy.
In the fall of 2014 at age 8, Fiona had the opportunity to come to Extensions and study under Lizzie MacKenzie, joining the petites group where she found her passion and desire to dive more deeply into the art of ballet and contemporary dance. In fall of 2015, she was honored to become a company member in Extensions Too!, working harder than ever to grow in her study of dance and self expression.
Fiona loves dance because she can truly assert herself and finds that it is a way to release her inner voice and reveal emotion, strength and vulnerability. In addition to her passion for dance, her favorite pasttime is hanging out on aerial silks, singing and playing piano.
