“I intended to become a veterinarian because I thought there was no future for me in dance, even though I was dancing from when I was a kid. Then Toni and another professor, Tina Wallum, convinced me to take a class in dance, which helped bring me back to my first love. Dance has given me a reason to live. It inspires me, feeds me, all the cliché things, but they’re true, because dance makes me so happy.”


Elayna Waxse, 26

Hometown: Kansas City, Kan.

Dancing with TU since: 2012.

“Dancing is the complete package of human experience for me. It’s emotional intelligence, physical expression and creativity all in one package. TU has been a wonderful environment to grow and explore ways in which my artistry can evolve.”
