Reese Hartley: Dancing her way to success


Dancing her way to success

Winning dance competitions and taking a total of 12 AP / honors classes throughout high school, senior Reese Hartley surpasses the average GPA ( 3.0, according to Prepscholar) with a GPA of 4.5.

Apart from prospering academically, Hartley has also been very involved with the school and school related clubs. “I also just like being involved in campus life and feeling like I’m really connected to the school,” Hartley said.  At the beginning of the year she attended equity club consistently,  is president of the dance club, and is also a member of Crimson Crew. Hartley has been a part of the leadership program for six years. She mentions that it has been a big part of her life.

She enjoys school and English is her favorite subject. She likes the subject so much because she really enjoys reading and writing a lot. “ I actually enjoy all the books that the school makes us read. And  annotating and responding to the prompts.” She has also been taking college English classes for the past two years.

Hartley is extremely ardent for dance. She will be pursuing her love for dance after high school because she is going to TSU, Texas Cristian University. She will be majoring in modern dance. She has been dancing for ten years and has been competing for eight. She  has been competing for the Class Act Dance Company and Artistry in Motion. She’s been in advanced dance for four years at the highschool and has been on board for three out of those four years. Her favorite types of dance are ballet and contemporary. Contemporary dance is what she is best at and ballet is more challenging for her. However, she loves them both equally.

   It’s a really good way to show my emotions and how I feel on the inside. It makes me feel free and happy.”

Hartley said

Jennifer Bedrosian has had Hartley for  four years in two classes, leadership and dance, but has known her for longer. She has built a strong bond with her. ” She’s someone that I as a teacher can have good conversations with.”

 Bedrosian describes Hartley as a very determined person who is a good role model. In dance Bedrosian describes her as a powerful dancer with beautiful technique. “To me she is like a second teacher in my dance room” she also adds that she is super supportive and encouraging. In Bedrosians leadership class, she is described as committed. Hartley will be the first person to arrive at an event and the last one to leave to make sure “everything gets done” Hartley has been in charge of all the school dances and events. “What I love about her is that I know that I can count on her to be there to make sure it happens,” Bedrosian said.
