Fable Walton

Fable is 10 years old and will be attending Smith Middle School as a 5th grader. Her favorite subject is math, and she would like to be a teacher when she grows up. Fable was so excited to receive this recognition! This will be her eighth-year dancing at Dance Expressions. Jazz is her favorite style of dance, but she also loves lyrical. In first grade, Fable made the Tiny Expressions dance team and by third grade she was captain of the team. She is a current member of the Mini Expressions Elite team, Mini Lyrical team and the Mini Hip Hop team. She has had a solo since she was in Kindergarten, and loves performing the routines her choreographer, Ms. Lori, creates for her. Fable has earned many special awards; including “Outstanding Technique” and “Fabulous Feet” at multiple solo contests. When she is not dancing, Fable enjoys spending time with her parents, three siblings, and her extended family. She is also on the summer swim team at Fair Valley. At home, she teaches herself tumbling skills, and binge watches the Masked Singer. Her favorite days are competition days because she gets to spend the whole day with her dance team friends. She has made meaningful friendships through the dance studio and has learned countless lessons that will undoubtedly help shape her future.
