Freshman Elsa Steen has a long history of dancing behind her. She practiced multiple different styles of dance in various studios — none of which made her feel at home. Now, Steen practices competitive dance with her friends in her latest, and hopefully last, dance studio.

— Nicole Khudyakov

“I’ve been dancing for a really long time on and off, but within the past two years, I’ve been serious about it. I’ve danced at a lot of different studios and sometimes the studio isn’t the right fit. So I’ve just kind of moved around and taken some breaks.

I’ve been doing competitive dance. I do ballet, jazz, musical theatre, and contemporary. [Once] it didn’t matter much to me, but now with competitions I feel really dedicated to it and that if I don’t do it, I’ll let my team down. It’s pretty fun because you get to challenge yourself to be better.”

About the Writer
NICOLE KHUDYAKOV, FEATURES EDITOR

I'm currently sixteen and a junior at RHS. This is my second year as part of the staff at Eye of the Tiger, and each new year allows me to grow as both a person and a journalist. I enjoy writing (more than just articles) and reading just about anything I come across.
