Name: Olivia Peralta
Dance Studio: BC Dance, Arizona
Why Olivia wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:
I want to be a voice for children fighting cancer because my older brother had cancer when he was one. He’s 15 now! His cancer was a really rare type. Even though I wasn’t born yet, I know that it was a really scary time for my family. I love to dance. At my studio, I dance 6 days a week. My favorite genres of dance are ballet and contemporary. My family does things in our city to help kids with cancer and to help raise money for research. I love that my dancing could help kids like my brother. This is something that I can do on my own to help other children.
