Jordi Landry, 12, Hawthorn Woods, Illinois
Fremont Middle School (Mundelein)
Jordi is 12 years old and a 7th 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 four years, she has competed at many conventions/competitions throughout the Midwest, as well as at the national level in New York. Last summer in addition to training at Extensions, Jordi attended the Emerging Artist program at Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School in Steamboat, Colorado, and the Ballet Matters Workshop in Chicago.
The 2016-17 season is Jordi’s second with the Extensions Dance Company, and she is thrilled to be working with its esteemed artists and instructors. Always striving to be a better dancer, she is confident she’ll reach her goals under the direction of Lizzie and her staff, and is excited to see what challenges this year will bring.
When Jordi is not dancing, she enjoys downhill skiing, playing the piano, decorating her room with Pinterest-inspired crafts, and volleyball.
