My name is Hannah Wallace. I live with my parents in an uptown heritage home in Saint John, NB. Who else would find Mr. Raccoon locked in the porch the morning of Regional Science Fair? From a very early age I talked about being a paleontologist. My teacher, M. Allain Giroux, encouraged my interest and development in science. Besides having high honours in French Immersion at Princess Elizabeth School, I have been studying ballet for nine years at Port City Dance Academy. This year I was in the intensive programme and for three years I have been on pointe, part of Felicità (the performing ensemble) and an assistant instructor. Reading two books each week is normal for me and I love drama and singing. I have been in local musicals and I just finished playing Dorothy in our school production of “The Wizard of Oz.” Other times you can find me on MSN, on the trampoline or hanging out with friends. I dream of going to a school of the arts and being the Wicked Witch in a Broadway production of “Wicked”. A career in sciences will support that dream or a future in dance.

Abstract:It's an innovation for ballet dancers to keep their toes more comfortable in their pointe shoes, toe pads made from a new product on the market. To date, I have not seen toe pads made from this product except the ones I have made.
