Name: Skyler Grimes
Dance Studio: Allure Dance Studio and Just Dance Studio, New York
Why Skyler wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:
Many people in my family have been affected by cancer, including my 16 year old cousin Gregory. I have always been someone to raise awareness about things and support those around me who need help. Dance has been a passion of mine since I was 9. Through dance, I have been able to power through my anxiety, depression, and kidney disease. I want to share my passion for dance with the world around me and use it as a positive platform to spread awareness and compassion for those struggling out there, especially children battling cancer. In addition, I will be shaving my head and donating my hair for St. Baldrick’s in March.
