"The long-lasting friendships I have made being a member of this company have gotten me through so many difficult times. I auditioned for this group not really knowing anyone and by the first rehearsal I felt like I had a new family of people supporting me and pushing me to be my best self. Everyone works so hard and I feel so blessed to work with these girls, I may have never been given this opportunity any other way, since so many of us go to different schools. I can't even put into words how much I love this company of girls and its incredible coaches."
