COLUMBIA CITY â€” Churubusco High School graduate, Alex Husk, has tapped into her many years of dance to launch a new business, Astound Dance Academy.
At the age of three, Husk started to dance, but it wasnâ€™t until she was in middle school that she began perfecting her craft.
Now 24 years old and with many years of instruction experience, Husk is ready to pass on the love of dance to others in her own studio.
