What is your favorite memory of your dance career?
Winning Tremaine Dancer of the Year was a very special memory I will never forget. Having the opportunity to travel and assist an amazing faculty that I’m now able to call my family was amazing! Also performing in Orlando at UDA nationals with the Tiger Girls was unforgettable. So many great memories!


Tell us a fun fact.
One time I was on set with Jack Black and we sang a song and played the air guitar together. That was pretty fun!
