Hello! My name is Childress and I am 11 years old. I have proudly been dancing for 8 years. This is my first year in Show Troupe and I know I won't be going anywhere! I never thought I would try out for Show Troupe because I knew that it would take a lot of time, stress and work. Yes, it sometimes can be a lot of these things, but I have never loved anything more! Dance is a choice I made in my life, just as someone would choose to be a vegan, or get a dog. Of course, these examples are very extreme but this just comes to show you how much I love, care and have passion for dance. My personal favorite style of dance is Contemporary because there is so much emotion and feeling in this style. Regency Dance Academy has been my second home since I was three. Our Owner, Miss Tracy, has always been so supportive of every person that goes there. To all of my teachers, thank you so much! Without your teaching skills, work and support; I would have never learned as much as I have! The Regency Royals are a family and we will be through many years to come!

My name is Ella Brown and I am 15 years old. I have been dancing for 12 years at Regency. I love dancing here because I have a special bond with my teachers and all of my friends at the studio. My favorite styles of dance are Tap and Hip Hop. I have been tapping since I started at Regency and it has always been a favorite of mine. I started hip hop when I was 8 years old and it took a bit of time to fully grasp it! This my first year on Hip Hop showtroupe and I have grown to love it! I have been on showtroupe for 4 years now and I am so grateful for the opportunity to see my best friends every day and share our talents with each other. I consider Regency my second home because I can be myself and learn from the best teachers."

I have been dancing for 8 years. Three of those, I've spent on Show Troupe. I have done Jazz since 2012. Then, I branched off and started hip-hop and contemporary. I have a Jazz duet, an Open Trio, a Hip-Hop group, a Jazz group and a Contemporary group. My specialty is contortion and turns. Dance helps me show my emotion in a different way and helps relieve stress. Dance always makes me happy and I always know I have people in the studio who will catch me when I fall, and always support me. Regency Dance Academy is the best! The teachers help me improve my skills and learn new ones.
Fun Fact: "I accidentally taught myself contortion"
Hello! My name is Kaysen Mills. I have been dancing for seven years and I have been on Show Troupe for four years. Although I started off my athletic career with gymnastics, swim team, horseback riding, and much more, I was drawn to dance because I loved the beautiful costumes. When I saw a dance performance, I immediately wanted to put on the outfits. Even though my inspiration was sparked by just a few costumes, I learned to love the graceful movements and gestures. Throughout the years, I became more committed and tried all styles of dance. I am still working to master all of them, but my favorite and best style is tap. In my opinion, Regency Dance Academy is the best place to release my energy and dance. The unique individuals who surround me at Regency inspire me every day, and for that reason I will never leave RDA. Dance provides me with a reason to wake up every morning. Every day, my excitement bubbles over the top when it is time to dance with my best friends.

Regency Dance Academy opened a door for me and I am so happy I discovered dance. You can use dance to show how you feel and you can explain things using dance. I started dancing 7 years ago. My first dance was called Snuggle Puppy and it was Ballet. My first year in Show Troupe was 3 years ago. My second year of Show Troupe introduced me to Contemporary, my favorite type of dance. I wouldn't be able to smile without dance and I would like to dance until I die."
