Student Spotlight: Cadie Harrison
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.
