Ever since she was little, freshman Lorelei Sheldon has been twirling her way through life as a company, competition, and performance dancer. On top of her busy schedule, Lorelei joined the Journalism staff as a first-year writer for the Warrior Word. Her other hobbies include drawing and doing long division!
Knowing that you love to dance, when did you start, and where do you dance?
I started when I was about two, mainly doing summer camps. I started at the studio I am currently at when I was 5 years old. I am at Dance and Music Academy, and I have found that place to be my home.Lorelei Sheldon
Are you planning on joining any clubs at CHS this year?
Probably not, since I do dance Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I would join Newspaper Club if it was offered on a Monday or Friday! I wish they had a dance team here.Lorelei Sheldon
What was your first day of school experience, given that you are a freshman?
I found it quite exhilarating! I loved it! I did not get lost the first day, surprisingly. I did get lost the second day. I probably would have gotten lost the first day if I didn’t run through my schedule, because I go back and forth between North and Main all day.Lorelei Sheldon
Are you planning on going to college, and if you are, what are you planning on majoring in?
Actually, I am not planning on going to college. I want to become a dancer on a cruise ship first, then probably a sign language interpreter. I would have to go to college for that, though.Lorelei Sheldon
What is your favorite dance story?
I am clumsy! People say that I am so graceful on stage, but not in this story! It was last May during a recital, and my point shoe came off! I had no arch or calf support, but I still danced!Lorelei Sheldon
What are your favorite things about school?
I like math! I like cladograms also, which we did this past week in science. They are so fun to make!Lorelei Sheldon
