Dancing has been transformative for Nathalia. She is eight years old and has been dancing since age five at La Bella Dance Company. Through dance, she has made lifelong friends, learned how to focus on a goal, motivate herself, and has gained confidence overall. Dance has also allowed her to meet new people and travel to different places.
“When I perform I leave my heart on the stage and I feel every movement I make,” she says.
To Nathalia, kindness is very important and she strives to always be humble and happy for others. No matter what, each time Nathalia dances she tries to become a better dancer. When she hits the stage, she is able to fully express herself.
