Alexandra "Sparkles" Lund Featured in Young Dancer Ensemble

ARROYO GRANDE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2015) - Twelve-year-old Alexandra "Sparkles" Lund will be making her first Awards Show appearance on Nickelodeon "Kids' Choice Sports Awards," which broadcasts this Thursday evening, July 16, 2015.

This is not Sparkles Lund's first network television appearance. In November of last year, she appeared on the "Dancing with the Stars" finale with a talented young dancers ensemble that promoted the new "Annie" movie along with the youngest performer to ever be nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award®, Quvenzhané Wallis, as Annie. Sparkles Lund was also featured on "The Voice" this year singing and dancing to Tina Turner's hit "We Don't Need Another Hero," performed by Top 8 Team Blake star, Hannah Kirby.

In addition to her burgeoning commercial career, on July 2nd, the Hollywood Vibe Dance named Sparkles the "2015 National Dancer of the Year." Ms. Lund won this award not only for her dance acumen, but her work ethic, focus on improvement, focus on excellence and her ability to lead a team of Hollywood Vibe Company dancers.

Hollywood Vibe Creative Director Liz Imperio, a leading director and choreographer in the entertainment industry, says, "Sparkles is a great representation of the future dancer/artist Breaking Barriers is looking to build for this ever growing industry."

Imperio's high compliment comes from a creative artist of high standing. Her accolades include the staging and choreography for Jennifer Lopez's "Live From Puerto Rico" concert; director/choreographer of Gloria Estefan's most recent concert tour; and three numbers for Madonna's "Re-invention Tour 2004."

Imperio was joined by an A-list of choreographers who selected Sparkles Lund to be the 2015-16 Hollywood Vibe "National Dancer of the Year" and the Vibe Dance Company member. Imperio also founded Breaking Barriers. Breaking Barriers is an educational/motivational program created for young dancers such as Sparkles. Breaking Barriers is designed to change the way dancers think, work, and perform.

Imperio added this insight about Ms. Lund. "'Sparkles' is a delightful child. She has great dance skills, but her real talents lie in her ability to work hard, learn choreography quickly and maintain a sense of humor and humility even though her competitive and professional career is exploding. Bottomline, she's just a great kid and we love to have her around at each of our conventions across the country!"

An award winning featured dancer, actor and model, Sparkles Lund is fast becoming one of the entertainment industry's hottest young commercial dancers. Her dance styles include jazz, ballet, tap, hip-hop, lyrical, contemporary and pointe.
