Hey everyone, I’m Gabriella Alleyne
Also know as Gabriella En Pointe on instagram and welcome to my blog! I started a blog a few years ago, at first it was called balletchica.com and then I switched over to gabriellaenpointe.com. But since now I am older and moving into a new phase in my life (College!) I decided to revamp my blog and really focus it on my dance experience and tips I’ve learned over the years.
So who am I? I am an 18 year old, who’s trying to figure out life, basically. I’ve been dancing practically my whole life. I started dancing at three years old. I’ve danced in my Church’s dance ministry, Alvin Ailey, and the Dance Theatre of Harlem. I’ve also gone to my fair share of ballet summer intensives during the summer.
I am going to college in the fall with the hope of figuring out what I want to do and the person I want to become. It’s different now though because I will have to start my first year of college online because of COVID-19. I will be attending Loyola Marymount University (which is in Los Angeles, California) as a dance major. I am also thinking about double majoring in either Communication Studies or African American Studies and minoring in Public Relations.
So, in this blog I will take you along on my journey through college as a dance major.
Are you ready?
