Dancer 

 

I earned my BFA in Dance Performance and my BS in Marketing from The University at Buffalo. Growing up in Chicago I completed grades 1-5 of the Cecchetti Ballet graded syllabus, attended the Cecchetti Council of America International Summer School and have trained with Chicago based dance teachers Joel Hall and Homer Bryant. 

 

I am currently a member of In-Sight Dance Company, a Queens based contemporary dance company. With In-Sight I have had the opportunity to perform at The National Museum of Dance, with recording artists Jillette Johnson and The Paper Rain Coat, The Queens Fringe Festival, and The Long Island City Arts Open. The company has produced several evening length ballets, has curated "The Queens Fringe Festival", and has started their very own showcase, "In-Sight Dance's Suite Summer Festival".

I have also worked closely with Ginger Cox and her company LiNK The Movement. With LiNK I have had the opportunity to perform at: The Elian Summer Dance Awards, The Choreographer Canvas, SoNo Arts Festival, Leon Dance Art's "Stage 6, New York's 60x60 Dance, Harkness Dance Center’s “Fridays at Noon”, and Jazz Dance Choreography Enterprises. I am excited to be working with so many talented dancers and am honored to have been given so many wonderful dance opportunities while residing in NYC. 

 

A few of my other credits include the burlesque show "The Vereration of Bettie Page" at the Walker Street Theatre, Choreographers Carnival with Synthesis Dance Project, Dancers Responding to AIDS, and backup dancer for singer Barry Brandon and LIVID Rock Band.
