Dancer of the Year 2019

Hello!

My name is Sydney Young. I am 16 years old and a rising senior at MHS. I have been taking dance at Miss Jacie’s School of Dance for 12 years now. I take baton, tap and jazz. I am so appreciative of this honor to be selected for Dancer of the Year. I love being Miss Kristi’s helper and I am so thankful for both her and Miss Jacie for the opportunity. I love working with the younger baton classes. Every one of the girls are so sweet and thoughtful. They made my first year as Kristi’s assistant fantastic and fun. I was one of the lucky few who got to go to the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and look forward to another chance to participate in 2020 with my dance squad. I had such an awesome time the first time around and wouldn’t trade it for the world.

I am usually quiet and reserved, but through dance I can express my true self. I am so grateful for my friends and family because without them I wouldn’t be the confident young lady I am today. As for my future, my plans include college and if fortunate, the opportunity to continue teaching baton on the side. One of my passions in the future is to write children’s books.
