Every little girl dreams of reaching for the stars and dancing their hearts out. But one girl has definitely succeeded in hitting the big leagues in high school. Freshman Tatiana Savedra is a part of the movéo dance team and her dancing career all started out as a little girl.

Savedra started out dance at a young age and has continued ever since. Dancing at Club Dance Studio, her and six others on the movéo team practice together daily. “At club it’s usually more of a competitive start… it’s a lot of repetition,” says Savedra.

She went on to say that during club practice, it is more about technique and getting ready for competitions rather than concentrating on the artistic side of performing which is what movéo practices. One style of dance that requires creativity and an artistic view is contemporary which is Savedra’s favorite style. “I have more of a fluid movement, [and] I’m more of a leggy person because I’m super flexible.”

For Savedra, contemporary is easier for what type of movement she can give while dancing, but performing in a group is also easier for her, “I prefer group [dances] because it’s just more fun.”

What makes dancing in a group fun, is knowing you have friends to back you up. The movéo team is truly a family that sticks together at all times. Savedra says, “They help me throughout, not even dance, [but] I’ll see them in the hallway and I’ll say hi.”

Because she is a freshman, the whole high school life is a new atmosphere, and having older girls who know the ins and outs of school are a big help. “Because they are older and have been in my shoes, they understand what it is like to be a freshman in high school.”

But getting onto the moveo team was pretty intimidating. Savedra explained that at tryouts there were girls from all grades. But being the youngest, she knew that there were older girls who had already experienced dancing at school had a good grip on what to expect. But in the end, Savedra made the movéo team and she is extremely proud of her accomplishment.

Laughing and giggling, she went on to explain that even though the show was a lot of work, it was all worth it.
