My name is Bryce Sale. I am a straight A student in 12th grade. I have been with Step 1 Dance 2 since they opened. The styles I take are Ballet, Hip Hop, Tap, Contemporary, Jazz, Partnering, and Break. I am a co-captain for Parallel Performance Company. On top of dance, I pursue graphic design, visual art, and music production. Some fun facts about me are that I was the first student to enroll at the studio, and I have a bleeding disorder called Von Willebrand which means my blood doesn’t clot. I plan on going to college for dance and music, and will be auditioning at many schools this year as I am now a Senior. Dance will always be a passion of mine and I can’t wait to pursue it as my job.
Abby is entering her senior year of high school and will be going on her seventh year of dancing. Abby has been with Step 1 Dance 2 since the start of her dance journey. After her second year of dancing she was asked by Ms. Jess to help with the Little Movers because her younger sister was in the class, and the class was rambunctious, to say the least. After that, Abby never left Little Movers. Jess asked her to stay alongside her in Little Movers. Abby’s love for little dancers and dancing herself grew more and more each year. While protégéing and going to middle school, Abby decided to join Step 1 Dance 2 Parallel Performance Company. She earned the role as an apprentice and went to rehearsals, learned the choreography, and of course enjoyed her time at the studio. The following year Abby became a full company member. She traveled with the company, met and trained with renowned choreographers. Her second year as a company member she traveled with the company to New York, Philadelphia, and Orlando, meeting and training with outstanding dancers and choreographers. Last year at Artist Simply Human’s regional dance convention in Philly, while auditioning she was awarded a scholarship to be used at the conventions Nationals. Abby was beyond excited and thrilled to be awarded for such scholarship and to be recognized for her dance abilities.
Outside of the studio Abby also dances at her school, she belongs to the school’s dance company while also taking dance classes during the school day. Her dance teacher at school has given her opportunities to go to dance festivals and audition at the All State Dancer auditions for the state. Stubbornly, she auditioned for the school musical, Mary Poppins, this was a new experience for her that she enjoyed.
Abby was soon asked to be a Teacher Trainer where she helped Ms. Jess teach classes and learn the steps to run a class. Most recently, Abby proudly took the role of being Company Co-Captain. And this coming year she will be Company Captain alongside Bryce Sale. Abby is very excited for the next year to teach even more classes. This coming year Abby plans on touring and auditioning for colleges. She does not quite know what path dance will take her but she knows it will be a part of life and she looks forward to extending her training in college.
