How did you get into dancing? My mother was theatre major and father was a self proclaimed musician. My mom said one day she found me at 3 years old standing on her marble table with my shirt tied dancing with the Fly Girls while watching “In Living Color”, I assume that was the day that I decided.

What do you love most about dancing? I love that there are so some many styles and foundations, which allows every dancer to express themselves through dance in their own unique way.

Any other hobbies besides dancing? I love to sing! I was an active member of all the church choirs of the churches I attend between the ages of 7-18 years old. And I still see a vocal coach to this day.
