Overview

I have always loved to dance. Even before I started taking classes I would choreograph dances for myself and my dolls. I began dancing competitively in 2002. In summer 2007 I was selected to be a part of Team Rave, a professional children's dance team. In 2009, I won 1st overall as a soloist at Celebrity Dance Competition, Nationals at Sea.

I continued to dance in High School and led our dance team as a captain my senior year. During this time I also attended many workshops and conventions including CAHPERD, The Pulse on Tour, and The Radio City Rockettes Summer Intensive.

After graduating High School I danced for the Inland Empire 66ers Dance Team in San Bernadino, CA. I started taking dance classes at MiraCosta in 2011. I had many incredible opportunities including performance, choreography, and the privilege of attending The American College Dance Festival in 2012. In spring 2014 I completed an AA Degree in Dance and received a Legacy Award as well as The Friends of Dance Scholarship and Award.

While attending MiraCosta I also had the opportunity to dance in 2 professional movement theatre shows. Both shows were choreographed and directed by Tsofia Gal, an Israeli Creative Arts Therapist and Certified Movement Analysts. Her work embodied the energy healing process experienced by the dancers. I danced a supporting role in FIVE at The Hollywood Fringe Festival in July 2012. In July 2013 I danced a lead role in Perah' at The White Box Theatre.

I love sharing my passion for dance with my students. I enjoy encouraging them to improve their skills in a fun and safe environment.
