We are so proud of our graduating seniors and each year we feature them with a Senior Spotlight!

We asked each of our seniors a few questions about their time at Shuffles, read Anne Herring’s spotlight below:

  • What is your plan in the fall? Attending university? Traveling? Performing?

I am going to the university of Michigan to study classical piano.

  • What were your favorite parts/ performance features at Shuffles?

My favorite numbers in the show have always been the ones with lots of energy- whipped into shape, the opening numbers and my duet with Eva last year. I also loved doing duets with my twin sister Lois when she was at shuffles. My favorite part of shuffles was spending so many years learning with the same people and getting to be creative together. It is always so exciting right before a show when we see a number come together.

  • What is your favorite memory from your time at Shuffles?

I have a few favorite memories. After my first AP showcase, all of AP went out to dinner together and I remember feeling like we were such a team. I also always love getting ready together during the shows. I feel like a lot of fun stories and experiences get shared while we prep and eat twizzlers.

  • How has Shuffles impacted you today?

 I think shuffles has given me a lot of confidence. I learned how to perform in front of friends and strangers and how to constantly try new things. I think learning how to be fully present while acting has also taught me to be fully engaged in everything I do.

  • Anything else you’d like to share?

Shuffles has been such an incredible part of my life. I have learned how to collaborate with others, how to give 100 percent to something and how to be focused and kind in intense situations. I have made such wonderful friends at shuffles, who are so smart and confident. It was such a blast to be competitive with each other while also supportive. The teachers at shuffles have meant so much to me. They are so kind, supportive and incredibly creative. They have been such wonderful mentors to look up to, I will miss learning from them every week. Dancing at shuffles has given me the opportunity to mix creativity with musicality with athletics- and there is always more to discover. It has really been such a special part of my life that will be hard to say goodbye to.
