Senior Ava Cox dances her way through high school and onto her next adventure

Whether she’s practicing in the dance studio, winning a gold medal at SkillsUSA for the Crimson Closet, or staying on top of her school work, Ava Cox is a girl who lives in many worlds. Cox started dancing at seven years old. She took a brief break a few years after, but started back up just before high school. She has been a part of Advanced Dance for four years, and she is the Vice President of Jazz’n Company in Advanced Dance. She is also a teen company member at Artistry in Motion dance studio. 

“If someone were to come up to me and tell me it’s possible to work harder than Ava I would laugh, because they obviously have no clue who she is. Even though she left some pretty big shoes to fill I wouldn’t choose anyone else to have as a big sister, “ freshman Julia Cox, Ava’s little sister said. 

Her junior year, Cox along with Campbell Sinton and Audrey Dawes, wanted to come up with a project they wanted to compete at SkillsUSA. The Crimson Closet, a spin off of the original Cinderella’s Closet which was a free prom dress shop event, is a place on campus where students in need of clothing can go to shop for free. 

“We learned about how there wasn’t a good space for students in need of clothes to be able to receive them, and thought, we need to make a safe space for our students to gain easy access to clothes,” Cox said. 

Crimson Closet won first place at the state level SkillsUSA competition, and continues to serve students every Wednesday during tutorial.  

Cox applied to seven schools: University of Oregon, University of Nevada Reno, Chico State, USC, Cal Poly SLO, CSU Fullerton, and SDSU. She was accepted into all schools except USC. Next year, Cox will be attending SDSU and major in Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship. She also plans to add a second major of Journalism to pursue a career in media.
