Meet Covet Dancer, Mariya Popova!
The amount of applications we received for the ‘Covet Dancer’ Brand Ambassador Model Search was absolutely amazing. It was incredibly hard to only pick a few dancers for the job. One dancer who made our jaws drop was Mariya Popova from Fair Lawn, New Jersey. Her beautiful technique and ambition led us to select her as a Covet Dance Brand Ambassador…and those feet!
Lets get to know her with the Q&A below:
What is your Instagram handle?
What grade are you in?
I am currently in 8th grade
Which dance classes do you enjoy the most?
This is a tough one! I love lots of styles, though I primarily take ballet. My favorites besides that would probably have to be Broadway Jazz and Contemporary.
What are some of your favorite Covet Dance items?
I love my ‘Odile With It- French Terry’ sweatshirt. I wear it all the time!
What is your favorite dessert?
Oreos are my favorite!
Who is your dance inspiration?
There are so many! Juliet Doherty and Gisele Bethea are both incredible, and I love to see their new photos and videos. They inspire me to work harder
Who is your favorite singer?
There are too many to name! I think it’s enough to say that I wouldn’t be able to live without music and headphones!
What is your favorite song to dance to?
Depending on my mood, it can be something as upbeat as “Rule the Worls” by Walk Off the Earth to something as emotional as “Say Something” by A Great Big World.
What is your favorite place you have visited?
Anybody who knows me personally, or follows me on Instagram, knows I LOVE to travel! It’s hard to choose…any part of the world can be viewed as fascinating, but I probably enjoyed my stay in Iceland the most, as of now.
Tell us what you love about Covet Dance.
I love the quality of Covet Dance products and their originality. They are perfect and are a must for every dancer on the planet! I wear my tanks when I warm up before class and brings up my confidence I would want a closet full of Covet because the infinite designs and quotes are so relatable. I just ‘heart’ Covet Dance!
What is your greatest accomplishment in life so far?
This year, I got three roles in The Nutcracker, one of which is Snow Queen! I get to perform a pas de deux on stage, ant though it’s something nerve wracking, I’m also really psyched!
