This is Claire’s eighth year with Beyond Words, and she is humbled to be chosen as this season’s team captain. Her passion and commitment to the sport has soared since becoming a company member. Outside of dance, Claire enjoys photography as an alternative creative outlet, as well as traveling, being outside, and spending time with family and friends. Claire would like to thank her mom, dad, and two sisters, Emily and Amanda, for supporting her throughout the years. She would also like to thank Miss Mickey, her first dance teacher, and of course her inspiring instructor Miss Kate for pushing her to be the best dancer and person she can be. Claire will be forever grateful for the presence of dance in her life.
