Sasha Zitser, 12, Hawthorn Woods, Ill.
Fremont Middle School, Mundelein, Ill.
I have been dancing since 3 years old and dance is simply my life. Dancing is as important to me as the air I breathe or water I drink.
I have been on Soul2Sole Elite dance company for 4 years and this is my 1st year with Extensions dance company. I'm very excited to dance and learn at Extensions and looking forward to new experiences and friends. I am also trying to pursue my acting career - I have been in children's theater for 8 years and now I'm working on my on-camera skills.
I have the most supporting family and funny little brother. I love to travel and recently I fall in love with New York and want to go to school there.
