Tara Aghaian, 12th grade, she/her
FAVORITE THING ABOUT ONLINE?
Probably how convenient it is to just take classes from home (or my bed!).
HARDEST THING ABOUT ONLINE?
Finding ways to motivate myself and still make the most out of each dance class I take, regardless of space restrictions.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO ONCE WE ARE IN PERSON?
I am looking forward to dancing with my classmates again and feeding off of each other’s energy-- it’s truly a magical feeling that I am really missing right now.
HOW HAVE YOU ADAPTED ONLINE?
Although I’m still in the process of adapting to this platform, I think I improved my time management skills.
Playing the piano.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT LACHSA RIGHT NOW?
Definitely the amazing dance faculty. They have been so supportive and generous throughout my four years at LACHSA, and I truly wouldn’t be where I am today without them.
FAVORITE DANCE CLASS?
It’s so hard to decide! But I would have to say Graham class with Ms. Yuka-- Graham will always have a special place in my heart.
FAVORITE LACHSA MEMORY?
Our trip to the National High School Dance Festival in Pittsburgh! It was such an amazing experience and I will never forget it.
PLANS FOR FUTURE/COLLEGE
I hope to attend a conservatory-style dance program where I can continue training and eventually become a professional dancer in a company.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE INCOMING FRESHMAN AND SOPHMORES YOU WISH YOU HAD?
Don’t ever take another class for granted again! As we’ve all seen, everything can change in an instant, so live in the moment and take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way.
