My name is Jenna, I’m 20 years old and I’m a current junior at Loyola University Maryland. My dancing career at Alyce Carella started when I was two years old. During my time there, I met some of my best friends and I was able to build my confidence though dance. I was a shy girl in elementary and middle school, but coming to the dance studio I was able to show my “true colors”. 
At the studio, I did all types of dance but my favorite style was Ballet, who I studied under Tatsiana Galitskaya. I joined her class when I was in 3rd grade and she grew to be someone I always will looked up to. Starting my freshman year of high school, I was student teaching 5 of her classes. 
Overall, I have had the best experience at Alyce Carella and it gave me a great foundation for dance in college. This summer, I will be teaching Contemporary at the studio, and in college, I teach a Lyrical class! Alyce Carella Dance Center was my second home!
