BIO 2005:

My name is Kaitlyn Klena and I was born on April 6, 1993 in Plano, Texas. I’m very excited and honored to be the Junior Dancer of the Year.

I started dancing when I was three years old at KJ Dance in Plano, Texas. I knew even then that I wanted to be a dancer. Dance is my favorite thing in the world to do. I look forward to the classes, competitions, and recitals. It has taught me perseverance, improved my character, increased my sense of responsibility, required me to budget my time, and given me friendships that will last many years.

Ms. Kristy and all the teachers at KJ Dance have been the greatest. They’ve taught me so much more than just dancing. They’ve helped me with my flexibility, strength, technique, stage presence, and my character and responsibility. They have taught me to treat everyone with respect, to work hard, and to be an encouraging teammate. They continue to help me grow. Also, my older sister is a dancer and I have learned so much through her example too.

Other things about myself are the following: I am the middle child of three girls. My favorite subject is math. Outside of dance I love being with my friends and family, going out to eat, movies and, of course, SHOPPING! My favorite foods are steak and lobster (my Dad says I’m going to be high maintenance when I get old enough to date!).

I want to thank Tremaine so much for giving me this awesome opportunity to learn and grow. I look forward to assisting at the conventions around the country and meeting lots of new people and making new friends.
