When Claire Kragen started eighth grade last September, she knew it was going to be hectic.
In her last year in middle school, she was also beginning an after school dance program -- Diablo Ballet's new Professional Intermediate Program (PIP) through Civic Arts Education.

That meant that she had little breathing time after school before heading straight to her PIP class.
