Kalina is sixteen years old and has been dancing since she was two. This is her fifth year with Beyond Words and she has loved every second of it. The team has become her family. When Kalina is not dancing, she is with her church group or dancing for her school’s orchesis team. Recently, Kalina has received Pro All Star at Camp Kate, the Dream Maker scholarship, Non-Stop Dancer at the 24/7 Dance Convention, and Teen Magic Performer Runner Up at LA Dance Magic. She would like to thank Miss Kate for pushing her to always do her best, and her teammate and best friend, Hannah Dusek, for inspiring her to become a better dancer. She would also like to thank her parents for always supporting her and giving her a life full of blessings.
