Bailey Gambertoglio: Singing, Dancing, Acting – It’s No Sweat Cuz She’s a Natural!

Sep 22nd, 2012 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Student Showcase

From a very young age it was clear that Bailey Gambertoglio was meant for the stage. Bailey was an outgoing child, interacting with people and children of all ages, and taking every moment as a chance to explore her world with enthusiasm. And Bailey never stopped exploring. As the youngest of 3, her siblings have all experimented with the stage before her, paving the way for Bailey’s own career to bloom.

According to Bailey’s mom, as a small child Bailey would get salt and pepper shakers, make up lines then she would act out the scenes with them.  Now, at age 12, Bridgeway homeschooled student Bailey is tackling the entertainment industry by the horns. According to Bailey’s own personal website, “At the age of 6, she filmed the movie Yarn in which she met her good friend Kaylee Beth Dodson. Over the years Bailey has appeared in over 5 movies, a supporting role in the children’s television program Barney and in numerous commercials. “

Now moving into the music industry, Bailey has already recorded 4 original songs, 2 original remixes of Christmas songs and 10 cover songs from her favorite artists. Bailey is currently working on a new original song and music video. She also tours as a soloist with Nathalie Gaulthier’s All Kid Pro Circus – Le PeTiT CiRqUe, performing at numerous events.”

Bailey has a lovely singing voice, and many of her tracks can be found on YouTube. One of her latest songs from 2012 entitled “Can’t Break Me Down” has the potential to go big!

But acting and singing are not all that is important to Bailey. Physical fitness is high on her list – and only adds to her acting and singing skills, as well as her marketability during casting calls. She enjoys pursuing gymnastics for flexibility, hip hop and jazz dancing, horseback riding, running, and pretty much anything that keeps her active and fit for her performances.

After a bout with private schooling, the option to homeschool became the ideal path for the Gambertoglio family. According to Bailey’s mom, “We began to homeschool Bailey in 4th grade because we were driving back and forth to Houston, Dallas (TX), LA, and New York. She literally became exhausted trying to keep up with the work – and me too with all the grading!”  Britney can do much of her work while driving to auditions, and feels that the Bridgeway curriculum actually “teaches” her  – allows her to retain and build upon the information – unlike some of the other programs out there where children just read and monotonously write in notebooks.

The option to homeschool was a no-brainer for the Gambertoglio family. The beauty of homeschooling your children is that it allows them to pursue their dreams – at an early age. Some kids are just born “knowing” what they want to do or be or specialize in. Special talents become apparent at an early age. Why not utilize the flexibility of homeschooling to allow gifted children the greatest gift – time to explore their God-given talents!
