Dance Mogul: What is it like to be competing on WOD?
Savannah Manzel: Competing on World of Dance has been a dream come true. I have met so many amazing dancers and am having an absolute blast!
Dance Mogul: You have been training and winning at an early age, what makes you so passionate in your pursuit of dance at such a young age?
Savannah Manzel: I really love to dance! I always try my hardest in class, listen carefully to my instructors, and enjoy being challenged. One of my favorite things to do at Larkin Dance Studio is to watch the older lines dance. I hope to dance just like them one day!
Dance Mogul: How are you holding up during the pandemic?
Savannah Manzel: I miss my friends at school and dance, but we have been able to have playdates on the computer. My parents have moved some living room furniture around so that I can still dance at home with my studio online. We are making the best of it!
Dance Mogul: What do you want to be doing as a dancer in 5 years?
Savannah Manzel: In 5 years, I want to be dancing just like the older girls at the studio, learning new things, and helping the younger dancers.
Dance Mogul: Is there anyone you would like to thank for helping you on your journey?
Savannah Manzel: I would like to thank my choreographer, Mackenzie Symanietz, for being by my side on this journey. I would also like to thank Molly and Michele Larkin, Chelsea Jennings, all of the Larkin faculty, my family, and friends for their endless support. Lastly, thank you to NBC World of Dance for this amazing experience. I am so grateful to all of you!
