Jordi Landry, 13, Hawthorn Woods, Illinois
Fremont Middle School (Mundelein, Ill.)
Jordi is 13 years old and an 8th grader at Fremont Middle School in Mundelein. Jordi was inspired to dance by her older sister and started dancing at the age of 4. For the past five years, she has competed at many competitions in the Midwest and has participated in numerous intensive workshops throughout the country. Last summer in addition to training at Extensions, Jordi attended the Hubbard Street Dance Summer Intensive and the Ballet Matters Workshop in Chicago.
The 2017-18 season is Jordi’s third with the Extensions Dance Company, and she is thrilled to be working with its esteemed artists and instructors. Always striving to become a better artist, she is confident she’ll reach her goals under the guidance, direction, and unique passion of Lizzie Mackenzie and her staff. In addition, Jordi loves how committed and focused her fellow dancers are at Extensions, which will also enhance her skills as a dancer.
When Jordi is not dancing, she enjoys downhill skiing and snowboarding, playing the piano, volleyball, and her new dog-walking job.
