They’re celebrity chefs, skilled ballerinas, and globally-acclaimed musicians – all before freshman year of high school! The List’s Donna Ruko has a list of super kids who will blow you away.


1.  Chef Addison Osta

This talented nine-year-old girl won Master Chef Junior.  Now she plans to open the Batter-Up Bakery. “I want to have very high-up-there desserts like eclairs and souffles.” But she's a busy girl and plans to wait until she's out of middle school.


2.  Ballerina Alexandra Hoffmann

This 12-year-old prodigy started dancing as soon as she started walking. Before working with the Rockettes, Alexandra was cast as Clara for Ballet Arizona's production of the Nutcracker at Symphony Hall. Hoffman is currently in a pre-professional ballet program at Master Ballet Academy, which is well known for its rigorous Russian style training, where she works closely under the direction of the owners Irena and Slawomir Wozniak. Alexandra is preparing to compete in the worlds largest international ballet competition, Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP); held in New York City. The competition had over 8000 dancers from all over the world audition to compete in the finals this year. Alexandra is one of only a few hundred to qualify. Alexandra is driven by her goal to become a world famous prima ballerina. Photos in the package are courtesy of Eva Nys and Chris Reilly.


3.  Jazz Sensation Joey Alexander

He taught himself jazz when he was only six! Now eleven, his skills have already surpassed many of the greats.  “My playing comes from my heart, not from technique or anything.  I’m still learning every day, but that's music.  You have to keep doing what you do.”


You’ve just gotta love these super kids scaling the ladder to success.
