on Chandra Maya Dehnert! Age: 15
School/Grade: I am in 9th grade at ACMA.
How many years have you been dancing at Elite?
This is my sixth year.
What is your favorite style of dance?
What is your favorite memory at Elite?
I'm petty sure that it was about three years ago when my jazz class did the Jai Ho dance for the recital. That class in general was one of my favorite memories because I remember loving the routine, the song, our costume, and everyone in that class. I had a lot of fun!
Tell us about your family...
It's me, my mom, my dad, my sister Estella who is eleven, and my other sister Kalani who is eight. I also have a little dog named Simon.
If you aren't dancing...what else do you like to do?
I really like doing anything artistic/creative, like singing, playing guitar, acting, drawing, and making movies with my friends. I also enjoy reading and watching movies.
Where do you see yourself in 20 years?
One of my dream jobs is being a casting director for theatre or film, and maybe living somewhere like New York City where I could get into this kind of industry.
A fun fact about me is that when I was younger I had an imaginary friend named April, who I imagined living in a red house down the street from me.
