Nadia Stone, 14, Northbrook, Illinois
Glenbrook North High School (Northbrook, Ill.)
Nadia is currently a freshman at Glenbrook North High School and a first year member of Extensions Dance Company.
Nadia started dancing at the age of three and since then has danced with Irina Makkai Classical Ballet School, Center Stage Academy of Dance and DanceEd Dance Center. Nadia found a love for contemporary ballet while spending the summer dancing at the Joffrey West LA Jazz and Contemporary and the Joffrey Experience Intensives. She studied under many amazing artists, including Josie Walsh, Desmond Richardson, John Pennington and Anh Dillon. During her two summers with the Joffrey Ballet School, Nadia was motivated to work towards her full potential as a not only a dancer but as an artist. Nadia moved to Extensions Dance Company to pursue her aspirations. Nadia is extremely thankful for meeting Lizzie and becoming a member of the Extensions Dance Company family.
Nadia is also a makeup artist. In her free time, she spends time learning new makeup trends, brands and styles and is working on creating a makeup line. She enjoys doing all types of makeup artistry from everyday looks to special effects.
Once again, Nadia would like to thank Lizzie and the amazing faculty and other company members at Extensions Dance Company for everything they have done for her.
