  2. Giwa praise

    AM 15 years old and am a good dancer. I have a dance crew, we are 4 in number. I am also good in acting and singing. I play 6 instruments, piano, guitar, violin, drums, etc. I am from Nigeria.

  3. Giselle

    I love to dance, sing and act. My talents include playing two musical instruments, the violin and Bassoon. I have a bubbly personality and am always willing to put myself out there in the spotlight. I have had experience in theatre through school productions as main characters and I used to play with MYM for my violin. I have also had experience with dance lessons, however I did not do any exams for dance. I am in Grade 4 for violin and Grade 3 for Bassoon. It would be an honor to play in Make it Pop as it would be like a dream come true.

  4. Melissa Henderson

    I have a 11 year old son who is a dancer and a 13 year old daughter who is also a dancer. We live on Long Island.

  5. Shailynn Childs

    I love to dance and I love to sing and act but this is a hard time for my family and they just don’t have the money go to the location but if I could, I would be honored to do the job to help my family.
