1st Season

  • Hometown: Indianapolis, IN
  • Occupation: Student at Ball State

What do you enjoy most about performing?
I love doing what I love for people who love what we as dancers do. There's no rush that matches the one you get when your team's name is announced and you run out and perform a song completely in-sync with a group of people of all different sizes, ages and backgrounds.

What is your dancing background?
I did show choir for four years in high school and was dance captain for two of those years. I've danced on the Fever Inferno Hip Hop Squad for two seasons. I've taught hip hop and ballroom for two years.

Outside of dancing, what are your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy working out and playing multiple instruments including guitar, piano, ukulele and drums. I also love to cook but not as much as I love to eat.

What's one interesting fact about you?
I can beatbox, and in 2nd grade I won a beatboxing battle at a high school show choir competition.

What is the best thing about Indiana fans?
They're loud, and they go bananas for everything, and it's just a super hype environment no matter what event you're at.

If you could be a backup dancer for one musical artist, who would it be and why?
Bruno Mars because his music and style and vibe is unmatched, and I would love nothing more than to dance to Finesse with him and Cardi B.
