I started dancing as a toddler as a hip hop dancer. I knew then I wanted to dance for life. SpecificallyI was interested in being a back up dancer.
Once I got old enough I attended afterschool porgrams which taught me how to Count 8. I found a new interest in Choregraphing.
I struggled to finish school until I was invited into a Performing Arts High School. while there I performed in theatre - hip hop heroes and innovators "7th Street" was the name of the piece.
From then on I started teaching, and have been ever since.
I am most interested in finding opportunites where I can perform as a dancer.
