Gabriella Wright, 10, Elmhurst, Illinois
Edison Elementary School (Elmhurst)
This is Gabriella’s first year dancing with Extensions Dance Company, and she couldn’t be more grateful for having this opportunity. Gabriella has deeply enjoyed learning from Lizzie MacKenzie and is very excited about this year with the company.
She has been dancing since the age of 2, taking classes in ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz and tap. Gabriella has been dancing competitively since she was in kindergarten. She has performed and competed in many regional and national competitions/conventions and received numerous awards and scholarships.
Under the direction of Lizzie and her exceptional staff, Gabriella has found amazing support. She is so very thankful for this opportunity, and grateful for her family and Lizzie believing in her.
When Gabriella is not dancing, she enjoys playing the violin and is constantly searching out new ideas for crafts and creating new works of art.
