KRISTEN GRAVES

As the only freshman on the Trojanette dance team, Kristen Graves looks forward to a year full of new experiences.

Q. What was your reacton when you found out you were the only freshman on the dance team? A. At first I was kind of nervous, but it helped that I already knew a lot of girls through my dance studio. Q. How do you feel about being the only freshmen? A. I am the baby of the squad! I feel like I do not get picked on as much for being a freshman because I am the only one. People always offer me rides beause I am the only girl that cannot drive. Q. Do you dance outside of school? If so, where? A. I dance at Kansas Dance Academy. I have been dancing there for ten years, and I am a part of the Dance Theatre for Young People. Q. How many days a week do you dance? A. I have two nights of regular classes, and Saturdays we have DTYP rehearsals. For the dance team we practice every week day for an hour and forty five minutes. Q. What other activites are you involved with? A. I have taken piano lessons for seven years, and I am also

in the band playing the trumpet. I really like attending my youth group at Chapel Hill. Q. Do you ever get overwhelmed with dance, school, and your other activities? A. Really in the past I haven’t, but I am kind of nervous that that’s going to happen in high school. I feel like the teachers expect a lot more from us. So far I’ve had a lot more homework than midddle school. Q. What was it like performing for the first time on the field? A. Performing on the field was extremely exciting and so much fun! I was nervous before of course, but I got over it.

Q. Was it what you expected? Why or why not? A. Beforehand I thought it was going to be like a normal performance, but it turned out to be a lot more fun and team building. I loved it!
