Hey I'm Kerry, from NY (NOT THE CITY!) and I have been tap dancing for 10 years. I also take jazz and lyrical, and will be starting Ballet in the summer, and Irish in September. I started dancing because my neighbor danced (shes two years older than me) and I wanted to try, so my mom signed me up. I'm taking a summer program that has ballet, modern, jazz and tap dance. I'm so excited!!

Now its your turn! heres some ?'s to get you started:
Who are you?
Where are you from?
How long have you been dancing?
What other types of dance do you take?
Why did you start dancing?
Are you taking any type of summer dance program? if so where and what type of dance?

I thought this would be fun, if you don't want to answer all the questions, you don't have to.

Hey Kerry! whats up? I'm Erica from CT but home is now in nyc. I've been dancing since i was about six and tappin since ten. Right now I am a college student so i take what they tell me to... which isn't a bad thing i've met and taken with some amazing people! Lets see next semester I will be taking ballet and modern, I might hang out in the tap class but i am not sure yet. I might be student teaching with one of my outside tap teachers. (I really hope I get to! I couldn't last year cuz of school) I used to take jazz, mostly classical and of course lyrical. so thats a little about me... :) talk to ya laterz

Cute idea... :D

My name's Miranda and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I started dancing when I was 5, but started tap at 6, which means this is my 17th year dancing!!! I take classical, tap, jazz and funk/hip hop classes, plus I teach too. I won't be doing any summer programs because we're heading into winter down here. :)

Hi. My name is Kurt, i'm 17 and I live in good old Massachusetts. I've been dancing for almost 16 years (yeah, all my life), but I started tapping when I was about 4, with my first tap solo when I was 5. I also do jazz, ballet, lyrical, modern, acro, hiphop, and contemporary. I started dancing because my sister whos 2 years older than me started when she was 4 and everyday she'd come home and show my parents what she learned and i'd start doing it with her, so my parents decided to enroll me too, and i've been doing it ever since.
this summer i'm going to the Dance Masters of America national competition in NYC in July. since i'm going to college in september, i personally felt it would be best not to spend thousands of dollars on workshops and conventions this summer.
Hay!!

Hi, I'm Amanda and I live in a small village in the middle of nowhere, West Horndon, but for most people thats just outside London. I've been dancing for 12 nearly 13 years, doing ballet and tap. I used to learn jazz, which I did for 5 years, but then my teacher didn't have time to teach us any more so I stopped. I now do modern, which I have been learning for about 4 years I guess. I also know a bit of line dancing, ballroom etc. but not very well, more just for a bit of fun. I started dancing when I was three mainly because there is a village dancing school, and nearly every kid in the village goes also there has been a history of dancing in my family and my MUm thought I would enjoy it. I'm not doing a summer dance program this year although I did a RAD ballet one last year and hope to one next year.

Nice to meet everyone.

Amanda

Hey yall. My name is Amanda and I'm from Louisiana. I've been dancing for seven years *I started late compared to most people; I was 7 years old.* I am almost 14 years old. I take tap, jazz, ballet, and this year I will also take pointe. I have also taken lyrical and hip hop in the past. I also student teach on Tuesdays. I started dancing because ever since I could walk and talk I danced around my house on my tippy-toes with a tutu on, and my mom thought I would love dancing. I'm not taking any summer programs, except for the camp that I will go to in August for my school's dance team. Well thats about it.

That's a nice idea. :)
my name is Tayana, I'm from Brazil. I've been tap dancing for 5 years, and nowadays i don't take any kind of dance classes besides tap. B4 i've already got a lil ballet, and a lil Rhythmic Gymnastics (does it count? hehehe). I started tap dancing in 2000, because i had to do extra exercise in my school and there was tap dance available. But i just fell in love with it and now i'm not there at school anymore. And unhappily not taking anykind of summer program now... :D

Tayana
keep tapping

Hey Kerry-great idea! My name is Erin and I live in Virginia Beach, VA. I have danced for 18 years and I am 21. I went to a not so great studio for most of my years, but ended up with a great teacher. I also took an eccelerated class for two years during middle school and I took a tap class recently in college. I have taken ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hoofing, modern, and a little irish step and highland dancing. My favorite is tap! I am now teaching little ones and this year I have been asked to teach the company dancers tap. I am nervous and excited all at the same time! My mom started me in dance and I am so thankful because I now enjoy it so much!

I'm Morgan from Massachusetts. This will be my 12th year of dance. I take tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, and pointe - lyrical's my favorite. I started dancing because my mom owns the studio so it's kind of in my blood, lol. Our competition team always has a mandatory summer dance camp that we had 2 weeks ago where we get a jump start on the new routines and bond and everything. We also went to nationals in florida.

Good idea...my name is Carissa and I am from the boring state of Connecticut ;) I have been dancing for 8 years now...and besides tap i also take acrobatics, ballet, lyrical, (have done pointe in the past), jazz, (have tried some hiphop but im not good at it haha) and we have a kickline! I started dancing because my best friend's mom was a dance teacher and i wanted to try it which now has become like my home! Plus i always used to dance around my house and i just loved it so my mom registered me! Well summer is almost over now but at my studio our competition team practices throughout the summer so i've been doing that which involves tap jazz and lyrical. Plus our studio has an acrobatic class once a week so we don't loose our tricks over the summer which i also attended...and our advanced dance camp, as well as helping with our intermediate and beginner camp as well. And lastly i also attended the Dance Teacher Summer Convention Tour a couple weeks ago for 4 days! So i've stayed pretty busy this summer with all that and my jazz solo classes!

Who are you? Kayla

Where are you from? somewhere in the USA

How long have you been dancing? this will be my 15th year...wow I'm getting old!

What other types of dance do you take? besides tap? jazz and lyrical. I used to take ballet, then I started taking it off and on, but I don't take it anymore.

Why did you start dancing? My mom and her friend enrolled me and her friend's daughter in dance just because they thought it would be something fun for us to do.

Are you taking any type of summer dance program? if so where and what type of dance? Not a dance program, I've been taking class at my studio to practice for competition and I've been assisting everyday in younger kids classes.

Since summer is almost over...I decided its pointless to answer if you're taking any dance programs over the summer because obviously its not summer as I stated earlier...so you can just ignore that question now...

I am Amanda and I'm from a small town in NY. This will be my 10th year dancing. I take Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Lyrical and I took acro for a couple years a while ago though. I started dancing because both of my older sisters danced and I ended up being the only one to stick with it this long.

Great Questionaire!

Hey! My name is Jenna, I'm 14 years old, and I live in New Jersey. This coming year will be my 11th year dancing. In addition to tap I also take jazz, ballet, and lyrical. It wasn't my decision to start dancing though because my mom had signed me up when I was 3.

Hi, I'm Alison! I'm from New Jersey. I've been dancing for about 4 years (this year will be my 5th). I take tap, jazz, and ballet. I also took ballet for about 2 years when I was really little, but we didn't do much. I started up again because I saw my neighbor's dance recital and thought it looked like fun and decided to start! I'm also really excited right now because dance classes are starting up today!
