Allyson is a home schooled senior getting ready to graduate, who is very active in her church and has a heart for children. Last summer, she traveled to Eastern Europe to work with children on a missions trip with her church. She is also an accomplished Irish dancer! We met in the fall for her senior session at Stauffer Park.
If you actually own a tiara, of course you wear it in your session!
Irish dancers do bling in a big way! They wear big curly wigs with big sparkly tiaras and it's all a part of the sport.
Allyson not only dances with the Hooley School of Irish Dance, but she is also one of the assistant teachers. And she will be competing at the North American National Championships this July!
Here's Allyson in full Irish dance costume performing at the Hooley spring showcase.
