Audrey has been dancing for 16 years and all of them have been at Dance Warehouse here in Lafayette. She also danced on Gator Jazz at Ascension her 8th and 9th grade years.

If you know Audrey, you know she is a Disney World fanatic. Audrey has been to Disney World 11 times and could call it her second home. A fun fact about her is one time she went to Disney World for about 24 hours and the same morning she was riding rides, she checked into school. 

As Audrey’s senior year is coming to an end she says her advice to underclassmen is, “to cherish every moment of high school, it goes by so fast!”
