Dance is a family affair for Petit sisters Alix, Maddie and Zoélie (pictured, from left). All three girls spend many hours each week at West University Dance Center. They are at the studio most days, practicing ballet, jazz, tap and contemporary dance, and preparing for competitions. Alix, 13, prefers ballet; Zoélie, 11, says her favorites are contemporary and tap; and 9-year-old Maddie loves jazz. The sisters all compete with WUDC’s performing company and spend many weekends at dance competitions. The older two sisters are students at Pershing Middle School and look forward to continuing dance into high school. Alix hopes to attend DeBakey High School for Health Professions and plans to continue ballet, while Zoélie has her sights on the dance program at The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
