Teens Succeed By: Mariah Michalowski
Introduction For my final project I decided to photograph Xanthi at her dance studio dancing. Xanthi spends at least ten hours a week at her dance studio both dancing and learning new routines and helping out with younger kids and their classes. Xanthi has been dancing for numerous years and it is more of a stress reliever to her. She is very close with her teachers there and spends a lot of time working with them to come up with new dances for her recitals and competitions. She is more then just a dancer in peoples eyes, she is more of an inspiration to people and kids who look up to her. Xanthi was nominated to go to LA this summer to compete in a world wide competition.
