Michayla Lewis

Visions Dance Academy

Miss Teen Elite

My name is Michayla Lewis and I live in Matthews, NC.  I’ve been competitive dancing since I was 5 years old.  Recently I took a year break from the competitive world and returned back at my current studio,Visions Dance Academy and I couldn’t be happier with the dance family I have gained. The teachers are inspiring and supportive which in turn motivates me to be a positive role model for our younger dancers.  When I’m not dancing or at the studio, I love to spend time with my family, participate in school events and travel to different places and meet new people.  At school I volunteer with all the special education children and find that this, right along side of dance, make my world a beautiful place. I have a secret obsession with being a double threat by singing and dancing, but my dance teachers and family tell me I need to stick to dancing. I love being involved in dance because it’s my outlet and an expression of my emotions.  But my most favorite part of the dance world is meeting all the different people in all the different places and making new long distance friends.  I am excited to be a part of the StarTalent family and I’m looking forward to coming back this season.
