2010-11 Luvabulls: Meet Nia
Crystal Lake, IL
McHenry County College
What does being a member of the Luvabulls mean to you?
Being a member of the Chicago Luvabulls is such an honor. I feel so blessed to be a part of such an elite group of young, beautiful talented women. I have made wonderful friendships with the girls that I hope will never fade. Hopefully being a part of the Luvabulls will open up new doors for me to grow as a dancer.
How has your dancing experience led you to this point?
I have been dancing my entire life. I started off as a ballerina, doing Ballet and Pointe for ten years. I'm so grateful for my up bringing in dance because it was my foundation to expand other dance styles and grow as a performer. Without it, I doubt I would have been able to accomplish all I have so far!
What is your claim to fame—besides being a Luvabull?
My claim to fame, of course would be my passion and talent for dance. Once you get to know me, I'm quite the actress and I love to write and share my life experiences with others. So hopefully, one of those will get my names in the bright lights!
What people do you admire the most and how have they supported or inspired you as a dancer?
The people I admire the most would have to be my mom and dad. They are the reason I started dancing in the first place. I have my moms beauty and grace and my dads strength, competitiveness and dance moves. When I have been at the lowest of my lows, or my highest of my highs they have always been there for me, and reminding me who I am and to never, ever stop using the talents I have been given. They keep me believing in my dreams and myself.
What is your proudest accomplishment to date and where do you see yourself in 10 years?
If I could roll all the shows I have been in, medals and awards I have won, auditions I have made and all the work I have done into one giant ball then that would be my proudest accomplishment and I hope to keep growing and achieving more. In 10 years I hope to be doing something that I love, whether it be dancing, acting, and writing. I hope that along the way I have helped at least one person in their life. I hope that I have been to Europe and that I own a Bulldog. A lot can change in 10 years, a lot can change in a day, but I just want to be happy with me.
