She also plays the ukulele! To Abby, the best part of her experience with 5678 has been all of the friendships she has made and learning to push herself.

Ianna first started at 5678 when she was 6 years old and says that when she started as a kid, it was just for fun. As she got older, she realized she had a love for dancing and performing, and performing and meeting new people is her reason for continuing. Out of all of her teachers, Ianna says that Mandy, Kim, and Jess, have been the teachers she has had most and they have each pushed her to do better even when she didn't think she could. So far, her favorite recital was our 2020's "Time After Time". Even though it was not a traditional recital, she loved the theme and how the music moved through the decades. Despite the circumstances, she feels that everyone was amazing! Ianna feels 5678 has benefitted her life by teaching time management, discipline, and how to balance school and dance. In the future, Ianna hasn't decided on a career path yet, but she fully intends to go to college and hopes that whatever she ends up doing will make her happy!
