This is Rafaela’s first year with Beyond Words Dance Company. She started taking dance lessons at Beyond Words Dance Center when she was two years old. When she is not dancing, Rafaela likes to draw and make art projects, cook with her dad, and spend time with her family and friends. She would like to thank Miss Megan Rhodes and Miss Mickey Sullivan for their instruction, support and encouragement to help her achieve her goal of becoming part of the Beyond Words Dance Company. She also extends her gratitude to her parents and brother, Lorenzo, for their love and helping her be the very best she can be.
