Nel Klimas

Nel Klimas is a freshman at George Mason University and is from Houston Texas. Nel used to do gymnastics competitively until she started dance in middle school where she immediately fell in love. Dance has become her whole life since then. She attended a performing arts high school where she was able to work with guest artists such as Jennifer Archibald, Zach Tang and Justin Prescott. Nel has also had the opportunity to attend the NorthWest Dance Project summer intensive. She is very interested in choreography and has been lucky enough to have her choreography performed on various occasions. She was able to perform her piece at the Houston Youth Walk Out and the regional high school dance festival where her piece received honorable mention. George Mason is Nel's dream school and she is so thankful and grateful to be here. She can’t wait to spend the next four years here!
