Name: Haley Ferrante
Dance Studio: The Dance Collective, Maryland
Why Haley wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:
When I think of cancer, I think of all those affected by this horrible disease, those who have lost loved ones because of cancer and those who continue to fight day after day to win their battle. Having my health and the ability to dance is something I will never take for granted. Expressing myself on stage allows me to give a voice to those facing something beyond their control. I can only hope to bring awareness to the children facing cancer, to let them know they are not alone in this fight and that we, as a dance community, will always strive to find a cure.
