Gabriella Wright, 11, Elmhurst, Illinois
Sandburg Middle School (Elmhurst)
This is Gabriella’s second year dancing with Extensions Dance Company. She is very excited about starting the new year with her friends and dance family.
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 and 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 with her three puppies, being creative and learning new skills on the trampoline.
