Miss Dance of North Carolina

About Meryl

My name is Meryl Rhyne, Miss Dance of NC 2024. I am 17 years old, a senior at Providence High School, on the yearbook staff and in the National Honors Society. I have been at Miller Street Dance Academy since I was three years old and have been dancing competitively since I was five. My favorite style of dance is lyrical because I love connecting with the audience on a deeper level and telling a story. Outside of dance, I love to hangout with my friends, read, go on walks, go to coffee shops and shop. My favorite place is the beach. I am going to study biomedical engineering in college and would love to be on a collegiate dance team. I hope to continue dancing for the rest of my life and would love to have the opportunity to dance professionally for a few years right out of college.
