FINISH THIS STATEMENT

I am most proud of: the person I have become over the few years and always working towards my goals.

I’ve always wanted to: travel to an impoverished country and bring dance supplies as well as teach dance. 

What is your dance background and experience? I started dance at the age of 5 in Syracuse, NY at Center of Ballet and Dance Arts. While there I studied ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, tap and contemporary. I then went on to college at Mercyhurst to study those dance forms. Now after college I’m studying modern and contemporary ballet at Dancing Wheels Company as well as different forms of jazz and hip hop with the Cavalier Girls.

Why did you decide to audition for Cavalier Girls? During college, I wanted to find different avenues of dance other than concert dance. I auditioned for the D-league basketball team in Erie, Pa the Bayhawks. After finding a new passion in commercial dance my coach, Holly, gave me information about Cavalier Girl auditions. The rest is history!

What do you like most about being a part of Cavalier Girls? I love being able to meet kids that dream of dancing on the court one day and finding ways to help them achieve those goals. I also love meeting the fans and giving them the best experience possible before, during, and after games.

Most memorable Cavalier Girl moment so far? Winning the championship my rookie season!

If you can say anything to Cavalier fans, what would you say? Thank you for your endless support during my past two seasons on the team. No matter the score we rally together as a city to be the team behind the team. It’s an amazing feeling to have a community and organization feel like family.
