A well rounded and highly experienced artist with performance experience in many different shows, theatres, events, and venues around the country. Dance brings joy and so many people together all around the world - professional or otherwise - and in this way can very much be seen as a gift. As a professional dancer, it is my job to refine this gift and share it with audiences. Being able to take the audience on a journey and bring a story to life on stage is truly a gift. This is one of the things that keeps me motivated and inspired in the studio throughout the rehearsal process. One of the m ... ost exciting parts about being a dancer is exploring and developing a character and sharing that interpretation and creation with audiences.

Meet the Act
I began dancing at the early age of three. Dancing brings me the greatest form of joy and it is where I feel most alive. My dancing is a form of poetry, my movement is a poem in motion. I would describe myself as a person full of energy, vigor, spirit, intensity and passion. Expressing myself through movement is when I feel like my true self. I very much enjoy my solitude. Staying connected with my authentic self is very important to me. Reading, writing poetry, traveling and spending quality time with people I deeply care about are personal experiences I take great pleasure in.

Dancers rapidly improve and thrive when they have the teacher's full attention and time to study them closely. One on one coaching can allow the dancer to work at their own pace and be able to discuss and understand the fundamentals of the movement, something that is difficult to do in a full ballet class with many students. I focus on utilizing the Vaganova technique to create class that will help each individual dancer work on specific areas in ballet in which they need help with. Breaking down the steps so they have the basic body mechanics is key. The classes are wonderful alone or as an addition to a training schedule. Private lessons online will give the dancer the attention they need no matter where they are on their learning journey.
