Zoe Farsalas, 14, Naperville, Illinois
Zoe Farsalas first became interested in dance at the age of two, enjoying an ice cream while peering into the window of a local dance studio mesmerized by a ballet class. She joined Extensions Too! for its founding 2011-2012 season, and this year will mark her seventh year with the company.
Zoe is lucky to have worked with many amazing teachers and choreographers including Lizzie, Jared Baker, Christian Denise, Karen Ellis-Wentz, and Miranda Borkan. Zoe has been invited to perform and attend classes at the Youth America Grand Prix finals, and has earned regional placement in the top 12 in both contemporary and ballet. She has attended summer programs at Joffrey Ballet Chicago, River North Dance Chicago, and Inaside Chicago Dance.
She is thrilled and honored to continue working with Lizzie and all of the Artists that make Extensions such a special place to learn, create, and grow. Zoe is especially grateful to Lizzie for her unwavering support as she works towards her dreams.
