“My mom said I would walk around the house on my tip toes just spinning around, and said, 'I'm putting her in ballet!' So at 3 years old, I started ballet. I have been dancing almost every day since. I love being on stage and being able to express how I feel through my movements. I love getting the chance to turn into a different character and be able to tell their story through dancing and acting.”

What Would You Like the Audience/Community to Gain from Your Performances: Feeling the audience is another one of my favorite feelings when I'm on stage. Knowing that I'm taking them through the ballet, making sure they understand, enjoy, and feel like they are up on stage in the ballet their selves, helps me to do my best and put a little extra sparkle into my dancing.
