Isa Sanchez, 14, Chicago
Whitney M. Young Magnet High School (Chicago)
Isa started dancing at two years old. She started out competing with Turning Pointe Dance Company at age 5. She continued her training with Jackie Farina, Connie Fagan-Sweeney and Jay Fagan at The Dance Workshop/Jo’s Footwork Studios.
Following in her sister’s footsteps, she began training with Lizzie in 2011 and continues her training at Extensions Dance Center with their amazing faculty. She is beyond thrilled to be a member of Extensions and is looking forward to an amazing fifth season with all the members of the company. When Isa is not at dance you will probably find her studying, finishing homework, sleeping, or even hanging out with friends (on rare occasions).
Isa would like to thank Lizzie for believing in her and providing her with so many opportunities. She would also like to thank her sisters, Lorena and Karina, who continue to be her greatest role models, and her parents, for supporting her dreams and for being her personal chauffeur.
