I’ve had a passion to dance since I was four years old. I have 19 years of dance training in various styles including jazz, hip hop, ballet, lyrical, pointe and modern dance. I danced on both my high school and university dance teams, danced and competed for a private dance company, and I also danced for eight years with a professional dance team, where we performed all over the world for military bases, corporate events, and festivals.

Advice to young dancers
Dancers are perfectionist, which is why we repeat the same steps over and over again. The reality is that no one works harder than a dancer. It is exhilarating and worth every bit of effort. The payoff is huge whether the end result is a dance career or just a dance hobby!
