I have been dancing for 7 years.  I study Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Graham, Horton and contemporary. I'd like to thank Kiari Kirk for being an amazing teacher and mentor and for choreographing my hip hop solo. I’d also like to thank Marie Louise Gaschker for believing in me 100%.

Being part of IMPAC youth ensemble has been a great experience.  They are my family.  24/seven was a fun convention and competition and I'm grateful to have been able to attend. The greatest benefit to participating in competitions is the friendships you make with your teammates. And the greatest benefit of participating in conventions is having the opportunity to learn from some of the best dancers/choreographers in the business today. 

Because I will be attending a nationals competition this summer, it was not possible to plan for a summer intensive.  I will be starting my high school years at New World School of the Arts in the fall and plan to continue my dance training throughout high school and into college.  

Thank you for this opportunity!
