Morgan is the girl that gives. That’s why Festival Dance wanted to give her something in return…a featured spot on our Dancer Biography Blog. Morgan Dial is known for her enthusiasm and kind-heart. She really gives her all to everyone and everything.
Morgan is constantly striving to be the best role model for her younger sister, Katie. In fact, it was her loving response about her sister, at the Distinguished Young Women of Moscow scholarship competition, that cemented her earning the Self-Expression Award. At the competition, Morgan chose dance for the talent portion.
Morgan started taking various dance classes in Potlatch at a very young age. When she moved to Moscow in fourth grade, Morgan began taking Jazz/Hip Hop classes from Festival Dance Academy and has continued ever since then. This year, she will be in Diedre Sakota’s Advanced Jazz/Hip Hop class, again, which is perfect because she “loves Diedre”. Morgan is particularly excited about the opportunity to perform a Senior Solo at the Festival Dance Spring Recital. She will likely choose a lyrical or jazz solo, because it is “more graceful”.
One of her favorite performances to date was Festival Dance’s “A Magical Peter Pan Christmas 2008”. Her Lost Boy patched costume and “dirt-like” makeup made the performance particularly memorable. Morgan was recently fond of her colorful Bollywood coin-embellished skirt and bracelet bangles from this year’s spring recital. Morgan loves her dance costumes and all fashion. Morgan would love to own her own clothing store one day.
To achieve her dream, Morgan will be working extra hard during her senior year at Moscow High School. She is especially excited for her printmaking class. She has already completed all of the other art classes offered and has loved them all. However, Morgan is less enthusiastic about all of the college applications she must complete this fall. Luckily, she already has the SATs out of the way! Morgan would like to attend the University of Idaho and study business.
Festival Dance would like to wish Morgan the best of luck during her final year at Moscow High School! We encourage everyone to come to watch Morgan’s Senior Solo at our free Spring Recital in May 2014. It will be fantastic!
