Even though at age 10 this is her first appearance on the big stage, Layla was born to perform. She started dancing at age 3 with the School of Oregon Ballet Theatre and shined on stage as an angel in George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker in 2017 and 2018 and as a Baby Flamingo in Septime Webre’s Alice in Wonderland. In early 2019 Layla crossed over into acting, playing the role of plaintiff attorney in her school’s adaptation of The Trial of Goldilocks performed in both English and French. She is bilingual, having been in full French immersion since 6 months of age and is currently a 5th grader at LeMonde French Immersion Charter School. Profite du spectacle!
