Mariah   SoS Title: Dancer  Age Started dancing: Age 7  Favorite Dance memory: In 2017 I auditioned for the International Highland Dance Team for the Moscow Tattoo at Spasskaya Tower and I was chosen as one of 48 dancers from around the world to join this team. I was also the only American performer in the whole festival. I had the most amazing time getting to meet other Highland dancers and artists from around the world and I loved being able to share my passion for Highland dance with the people of Moscow and those watching internationally.  Fun Fact: In addition to studying, I have a job here in New York City. I get dressed up in stage makeup and costumes and give out discount flyers for Broadway shows to people in Times Square.
