Alex Dagen will be graduating from Professional Children’s School. This fall she will be attending Boston University’s School of Theatre as an Acting major! She is excited to relax with her family and friends in the city this summer before heading off to college!
On what inspires her, Alex had this to say: “My teachers at SHUFFLES and at acting school inspire me to be the best version of myself that I can be. I will definitely miss tap dancing with the people and teachers that have been a part of my life for such a long time.”
Having been a SHUFFLES student for 16 years, Alex has done many shows with SHUFFLES, but her favorite performance was No Place Like Home. She also has fond memories of her early years at SHUFFLES of bringing coloring books to the dressing rooms backstage, laughing, talking, and eating snacks with her friends. Alex says that one of the best lessons she learned while at SHUFFLES was “that hard work pays off in the form of practicing!”
When she’s not at SHUFFLES, she likes to take walks in the park with her dog and family, or go out in the city with her friends. Alex says she will miss the busy atmosphere of the city, and the ability to always find something new and exciting to do. She hopes to one day be an actress or an interior designer, but says that she will always dance in her free time no matter what!
Congratulations, Alex! We will miss you!
