I grew up in Philadelphia, PA and started dance when I was four. I studied dance at the high school for Creative and Performing Arts in Philadelphia and studied ALL STYLES there (Ballet, Jazz, Hip-Hop, African, Ballroom, etc.) I had the amazing opportunity of being a Top 16 Finalist on So You Think You Can Dance season 6 when I was 22 years old and since then I have been truly blessed with the opportunity to travel the country and world teaching and judging.

BIGGEST PIECE OF ADVICE FOR OTHER DANCERS
Be a DANCER, not a “Dancer.” It doesn’t matter if you can do 100 turns or kick your leg up high, if there is no PERFORMANCE or feeling behind what you’re doing, it’s just steps. Step outside your comfort zone, and do what doesn’t feel natural, it’s the only way to grow!
