Can you tell us a little about your background with dance? When did you start?

I started when I was 2 years old. My mom just put me in dance class because she thought I was cute in a tutu and I just stuck with it!

Do you go to a regular high school? If so, do the other students talk to you about the show or do they treat you like a normal kid?

I attend online school.  I’m so busy it would be very difficult to go to regular school!

We love seeing you dance on the show; will you be on the next season of Dance Moms?

I didn’t know much about reality tv so everything was very cool to see and be a part of.

What is a typical day of taping Dance Moms like for you?

Usually I wake up, go to school with our tutor in the morning, then we have lunch and start filming around 12. We rehearse our dances and then end around 4!

What is the one makeup product you can’t be without?

Concealer because it always makes you look good if you’re tired or you have blemishes.

How is your baby brother Jett? Have you been teaching him a lot?

I love my brother Jett. He’s so adorable,  it’s so fun to watch him grow up.  He gets cuter and cuter everyday!

What types of qualities do you look for in friends?

I look for a friend to be nice, loyal, and a person I could go to all the time and they will always be there for me!

How would your friends describe you?

Fun, crazy, and always looking for an adventure.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not dancing?

Watching Greys Anatomy, hanging out with friends, or shopping!

If someone wants to become a dancer like you, what would you suggest to them?

Stick to your classes, take your ballet and always work hard, Never give up!

Are there any other projects you’re working on which you would like our readers to know about?
