Cadie Harrison is a show business “triple threat” — someone who can sing, act and dance.

A New Castle native, Harrison is a Glenwood Springs High School freshman, but already has years of practice under her belt and plans to pursue her art in the future.

This week, she took a short break from her busy schedule to talk to the Post Independent about how she came be so talented so young.

Post Independent: How did you get involved in the arts?

Cadie Harrison: I started when I was 4. I had always begged my mom to put me in dance, and finally she signed me up for ballet at the Glenwood Center for the Arts.

PI: What drew you to dance?

CH: I love it because it’s a way to express yourself in a way that other people can’t or don’t.

PI: Is there a particular style that appeals?

CH: I’m leaning toward musical theatre, because I love acting and dancing. I’ve done a competition solo, and I’m in the school musical in the spring.

PI: What are your other interests?

CH: I love helping kids with disabilities. My mother and sister have been helping out at Challenge Aspen since before I was born.

PI: Anything else people ought to know?

CH: Dance is a huge part of a lot of people’s lives. If you ever get a chance to do it, you definitely should.
