Elyza Morckel

During Elyza's four years in high school, she has done synchronized swimming for our Catalina Club. Throughout the summer months (2015-2016-2017), she was a synchronized swim coach at two different clubs in West Akron and Fairlawn. She has been dancing for the last 11 years at her dance studio in Green and has studied dance at two visual and performing arts schools (total of 9 years of studies).
In the fall 2017 she will begin studying at KSU as a dance major. Elyza loves going out on the town and doing exciting things with friends and family.
