"I never thought I would get in to Juilliard, but it has always been a dream of mine," said Caceres-Nielsen, who has been dancing since she was 5. "In middle school at Bak Middle School of the Arts, dance became a deep passion that I wanted to pursue into the future. It's always been a goal of mine."

During her junior year at Dreyfoos, Caceres-Nielsen auditioned for Juilliard's selective summer intensive and it was during that training she fell in love with the dance and the training and decided to apply to the program during her senior year."
