Nora Brock began dancing at The Love of China School of Dance when she was only 4 years old. She fell in love with Chinese dance (and with “Ms. Emily!”) and has been dancing ever since!

Nora was born in China and grew up in Austin, TX. In addition to Chinese dance, she has enjoyed Christian liturgical dance, jazz dance, and she currently dances with her school’s dance guard.

Nora is in the 10th grade and is a TA in the Thursday, 5:00pm-6:00pm class. 
Fei Fei Cao has had a deep love for dance ever since she was a little child, and practiced in her school team from elementary to high school. She regretted not having the opportunity to pursue such an activity because academics took priority.

However, several years ago, she met Ms. Emily and the Love of China School of Dance, who helped her reconnect with this passion of hers. She has been learning and working with Ms. Emily ever since, and has helped choreograph multiple dances and has taken part in many performances. In her free time she enjoys watching movies, reading, and playing tennis.
Allison Lee was a student at the Love of China School of Dance, and is a teaching assistant for the Class of Peace. She began dancing with Ms. Emily at age 4, and has participated in many other forms of dance since then.

She is currently a freshman at the University of Texas at Austin studying Business. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to music, watching k-dramas, spending time with friends, and dancing.
