Lucia is 13 years old and an 8th grader at Santa Barbara Junior High. This is her first year in SSBYD and her second year dancing at GD. She has been dancing since she was 6 and is excited to be an ice skater in the Nutcracker. She has participated in GD’s junior intensive for the past two summers and is looking forward to doing it again this year. She is also looking forward to attending her first festival. When not dancing Lucia loves to spend time at the beach and with her friends.
