The School of Dancing Wheels: Jamaica Nida

Like always, each Saturday one of our students writes a blog about their experience with the School of Dancing Wheels. This time its Jamaica’s turn. She is one of our senior members at the school and has even performed with the company in the past! See what she had to say below:

So it all started when i was about 4 years old, i remember it like it was not too long ago. My first teacher’s name was Todd and my first performance was at The Fine Arts Association. From there i began to learn so many new skills that i enjoy, such as skills like how to do a full turn in a wheelchair and other new skills like how to perform onstage. This past year i was in The Snowman for the 4th time. i was going to be onstage with some of the company members which meant i would have to learn how to use some of the stage props in the show, which did not work out well. i love being here because i get to learn the skills i need for dance as well as theater, music, i’m also wanting to be in commercals and movies and stuff. And now with that being said i would like
to share with you some of my favorite things of mine.

1. “Ohmigod You Guys” – Legally Blonde: The Musical – Original Cast
This is one of the songs in my favorite musical Legally blonde. which i will be in at Beavercreek Community theater next summer.

2. Legally Blonde – Positive – Broadway Performance
This is another video from the broadway version (the first one was from the same show). This song is called positive, this song rocks and i
love the dance break to it. i actually know how to do it too!
