I have been a dancer since age two, and have had the opportunity to explore many different styles of dance such as Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Modern, Tap, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, Flamenco, and African. I attended Western Oregon University on a dance scholarship where I earned my BS in Exercise Science with minors in both Human Biology and Dance. I am CPR/First Aid/AED certified. I have worked for The Lotus Studio for the past 10 years and love what I do.
I’ve been a dancer for 18 years. I performed my first recital at the age two and I’ve since performed and choreographed for numerous recitals and events throughout my life. I performed with the Eugene Ballet Company in “The Nutcracker” for four years, playing roles such as a “Mouse”, an “Angel”, the “Naughty Ladybug”, and a “Party Guest”. My primary focuses are Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop, Modern, and Tap. However I also do Pointe, Acro, Flamenco, Lyrical, and Theatrical.
