Posted By Dan Kardell on Oct 10, 2014 |

Dancers at the dance project are confident, passionate, committed and talented dancers that learn, bond, create and gather lasting skills and memories by training with excellence, respect, traditions and pride.


Meet Tina:



My name is Tina Tobias I’m a sophomore in high school and I’m 15 years old. I’ve been dancing for three years and I currently attend iSchoolHigh. I did gymnastic competitively for one year at the age of 10 and then after watching the hit reality show “Dance Moms” I decided to try out dancing. I learned dance steps on YouTube for a while then attended Ballet Conservatory at the age of 12. From there, I went to Dimensions Dance and Performing Arts at age 13.

I am currently studying seriously at The Dance Project with hopes to pursue a professional career in dance, whether it be in a company in LA or New York or being featured on So You Think You Can Dance.

I dance because there’s always something new to learn. I love the rush of performing and the feeling of accomplishment after making it through a long rehearsal. But ultimately, I dance because it brings me unexplainable joy.


Meet Maddie…

Hi my name is Madeleine Ann Selby, I am a freshman in Booker T Washington For The Performing And Visual Arts. I started classical ballet at the age of 6 and soon after I fell in love with all dance genres.

I am currently studying seriously to pursue a career with a professional Dance company. My dream goal would be to live, dance, study, and work in New York or LA.

I dance because I enjoy performing in front of people and making them sit at the edge of their seat!


Meet Krystyna…



Krystyna’s love of dance really kicked off at the age of 8 when she became a competitive dancer at Dance Company of Wylie. In 2012, Krystyna began performing in summer musicals with Prestonwood Baptist Church. Her love of singing combined with dancing grew stronger each time on stage in “The Real King”, “Little Mermaid Jr.”, and “Peter Pan Jr.”. In 2013, she joined Dallas Summer Musicals Academy’s Broadway Bound troupe and found herself performing solo pieces as a singer for the first time. While Krystyna is trained in and enjoys performing in ballet, jazz, contemporary, lyrical and hip-hop, in 2013 she auditioned and was accepted into Greg Russell’s “Tap Into the Network” tap dance 3-day intensive. Tap dance also brought her to Showstoppers Mid-America Nationals Final 10 in 2013. Krystyna enjoys branching out to try all kinds of dance in all sorts of venues with a myriad of wonderful instructors. Let’s see what this year brings!

Meet Victoria…coming soon!
