Hi! My name is Marina Morga. I am 13 years old and an eighth grader. I enjoy school very much, especially getting to see my friends! Almost every day after school I go to the Connection Performing Arts Center, which is where RNG Cru dances and hold practices. Dancing is my favorite thing to do! Whenever RNG takes class, we all have an amazing time. All of us have the same drive and passion for dance, which makes the team really strong as a whole. My all time favorite kind of dance is R&B and girly.
When I am not at dance, which is very extremely rare, I usually spend time with my grandparents. They mean everything to me. I’ve been close to them every since I was little. They love watching me dance, even though they rarely get to. It’s hard for them to walk or drive a lot, but when they get to watch me dance they are always amazed. I also visit them every Sunday, and since my grandparents are 100% Filipino, they always have the best food!!
When I am not at dance or with my grandparents, I am almost always with my best friend, Shayla Hendrickson. We’ve been best friends since fourth grade. We don’t even consider each other best friends – more like sisters.
I recently started modeling for SMG Seattle’s Modeling Guild and I love it! Since I am the tallest on the group, my Mom said I should consider modeling. I went down for an open audition and they accepted me right away.
My parents, Drina and Marco, and my sister, Tiffany, help me through the most. My Dad is a dance dad! He comes with me every were since my Mom has to work a lot. But my Dad is always so proud of me. He and I are best friends! Whenever we can, we go fishing together, and sometimes he lets me go crabbing with him, which I really enjoy.
Dancing is where you can get everything out. For me, if I am in a bad mood one day, I can express it with my dancing and everything feels a lot better. I love going to RNG rehearsal. We have a lot of fun together, and even though we fight sometimes we can never hold a grudge. My dance teacher, Kolanie Marks, is a lot more than a dance teacher. He is like my second Dad. He will always be my inspiration. I started dancing with Kolanie at age nine. I was horrible when I started, but then he took me under his wing and taught me, and the rest of RNG everything we know. Kolanie doesn’t just teach us dance he teaches us life lessons that seem silly at the time but really help in the long run. I can honestly say that Kolanie Marks deserves a huge name in the industry because of how hard he works. RNG for ABDC Season Seven!!!!!!!
