Kayla Figetakis "My favorite hobby is to dance. Ever since I was little, I always loved music and dancing. My mother enrolled me into dance lessons and 15 years later I still love doing it. It's like a writer and his pen, I get to express myself through music and movement. Every part of me comes alive when I step out on stage and perform in front of many people." Only viewable within the Stony Brook Community.
