Wildfire

Word of Misty’s talent spread like wildfire throughout California when at the age of 15 she won first place at the Los Angeles Spotlight Awards. This accolade was recognized by the Los Angeles Times and they subsequently named her as the Best Young Dancer in the Greater Los Angeles Area.  From that point she was awarded a full scholarship to attend the San Francisco Ballet’s summer intensive program.
