TRAINING

My passion for dance first developed while studying and performing with Santa Cruz Ballet Theater. I supplemented my yearly classical training by attending summer intensives at Ballet West in Salt Lake City, UT and Alonzo King LINES Ballet in San Francisco, CA. My family moved to Portland, Oregon before my junior year of highschool where I trained and performed with Oregon Ballet Theater before graduating.

I received my B.S. in Biochemistry and a Dance Studies minor from California Polytechnic, SLO in 2019. There I joined Orchesis Dance Co. from 2016-2020 as a company member and intern. I performed, choreographed and directed for shows in San Luis Obispo. Throughout college I taught both dance and fitness classes. 

Since graduating, I have had the opportunity to continue to diversify my training and artistry through dancing with the American College Dance Association, Boulder Jazz Dance Workshop, Interweave Dance Theater, Durante Lambert Mentorship Programs and Shaun Keylock Company.

I am currently training, teaching and performing in Portland, OR.
