FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I interview new students and ask what are they looking for in a dance studio. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I began ballet training at various regional schools in the Chicago area studying Vaganova and Balanchine. I later joined A&A Ballet Company under the direction of former Bolshoi Ballet dancers Alexei Kremnev and Anna Reznik. While with A&A, I had the privilege of working with choreographer Justin Allen performing original works which received 1st place at the prestigious ballet competition Youth America Grand Prix. 

 

I received scholarships for summer programs of Cincinnati Ballet and Oklahoma City Ballet. I also attended numerous prestige summer programs such as American Ballet Theatre (New York), Ballet Arizona and Colorado Ballet. At age 14, I was invited to train year-round at both Colorado Ballet and Ballet Arizona.

I have worked with former American Ballet Theatre dancers Amanda Mckerrow, Valerie Madonia, Ethan Brown, Harriett Clark, former American Ballet Theatre Studio Company director Kate Lydon, and former Ballet Arizona Studio Company Director Carlos Valcarcel.

 

I have over 5 years of teaching experience and a sought after guest teacher.
