Meet Lizette Hill

Dance Student

"MiraCosta College dance student Lizette Hill’s passion for dancing all started on her third grade playground where she watched another student practice her dance moves during recess.

“I didn’t even know what choreography was,” said Hill. “I continued to watch her in awe and a week later I enrolled myself in a dance studio.”

This all started Hill’s love affair with dance that has lasted throughout her life." Read the rest of Lizette's story.
