My name is Sam, I’m 15 years old, and I am a proud member of Paracosm YA.

Most people would describe me as confident, nice, positive, and humble. I don’t think it's great to think about yourself in a way just because some else said it.

I did this experiment asking people to describe me not because I want their validation, but because I wanted to see if they saw me how I see myself.  For the most part, they do, which means they know me.

 

I try to be someone who you can look at and know everything about them, and I hope you see me too.

Hi! I’m Talia, a member of the Paracosm YA company, and a lover of dance, music, travel, photography, and all forms of art. 

I like to say that I was born dancing. From a very young age, I was constantly moving my body, but it wasn’t until I was 12 that I really committed to dance and started to get to know myself as a mover. I trained in many different styles such as jazz, hip hop, contemporary, ballet, and modern. I took classes at Balance Dance Studio for a year and then joined one of their youth companies, which I danced with up until I joined Paracosm.

Alyssa and all of the YA members have supported me to develop my skill and passion for dance in ways I never knew possible. I have learned and grown so much, and I have no words to express my gratitude for this wonderful family! <3

Hello, world! My name's Gryffin, and this is my story.

 

I'm a fourteen-year-old dancer, born in Chicago, but raised here in Austin. I've been dancing since I was eight, this past year and then some with Paracosm, but I was with Toni Bravo at Diverse Space Dance Theater before that.

 

I also enjoy art, specifically sketching, just as much as I do dancing. I also play a fair amount of videogames and stream them on Twitch. I don't know why that's relevant, but it's there now so... Anyways, that's me! Have a great day!
