Multi-Talented Teen Asha Berry

Multi-talented phenomenal teen, Asha Berry holds a 4.4 G.P. A and is # 8 out of 315 in her graduating class. How she finds the time to be on the varsity cheerleading squad, member of the Thespians Society, Cappies ( theater critique group), National Honors Society, student council, college ambassador, advanced orchestra and theater,concert choir and Caruthers Creative Center Dance Studio Sr. Dance Troupe Member I will never figure out! She recently was a member of her high school swim and dive team.  She has already earned two years of college credit classes, dreams of majoring in theater at NYU or the University of Chicago next year and has been dancing since the age of two.  She is lettered in choir, theater, and orchestra, and has played roles in the play Oklahoma. Other high-lights to her already impressive list include The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Stage Door Dance Competition, and the musical, Hairspray.  Asha has superior ratings at district choir contests, does all of this while working part-time at HyVee for over a year, and helps take over receptionist and teaching responsibilities at Caruthers Dance Studio.

Asha was also given the Nirm Brooks award for being the girl with a perfect GPA of a 4.0 for every grading period all 3 years of middle school. She is also a former Girl Scout, and also received an award in her school district for being a distinguished scholar, as well as an invitation to Girl’s State.

Please give this talented teen a pat on the back for being a go getter and shattering the stereotypes of African American youth. Oh, she is also my beautiful niece so I guess I’m guilty of being a proud Aunt.

My Top 5

Tap, Tip of the Toes or Trailblazer, these artists were extraordinary people on and off stage.  Most of them were civil rights activists and teachers as well as dancers and choreographers.  Some even starred in major film productions.

This is a tribute to those paving the way in dance back in the day.  They opened doors, literally, and broke down barriers to earning a living for African Americans in this form of entertainment so that those like me can benefit from having so many possibilities today.  So, here are my top 5/6 greats that have influenced me and that have made dance such a fascinating art form to teach and study.  Did any of these make your top 5?  Click the gallery pictures to read about these iconic artists and leave a comment to let me know.
