I started dance at four years of age taking tap, jazz, and ballet and have enjoyed dance ever since. Currently I attend the Savage Jazz Dance Company Fall Intensive. I attended the 2012 ALVIN AILEY Professional Summer Intensive in NEW YORK and performed at the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater! Also, I auditioned for and received a scholarship to a ballet summer workshop at the new Parthenon Classical Arts Center. After 6 weeks in New York I spent 3 weeks with Parthenon as well as private classes in gymnastic tumbling. I have competed as a company dancer with the Lisa Clark Dancers, North Bay Performing Arts and Just Gotta Dance(now Dance Unlimited) since the age of six in ballet, jazz, tap, and hip hop. I played alto sax with middle school and high school jazz, concert and pep bands. Two years ago, I attended the Alvin AileyCamp at Cal Berkeley and while going there we 'discovered' Oakland School For the Arts. I auditioned and was accepted at OSA and I have grown as a dancer AND as a person there.
