Kaite Engelhardt knew she wanted to sing, dance and act from the time she was 10 years old. Now the 20-year-old Arlington Heights native is taking a giant step toward making her dream a reality as a member of the inaugural class of a new musical theater program that emphasizes dance. "I've always wanted to be a performer and it is exciting for me to be a part of this new program that I believe will provide opportunities and open doors for me in performing arts in Chicago and beyond," Engelhardt said.
