Biography

fullsizerenderI am a dancer raised and trained in Warren, New Jersey, with experience in various forms but preference to modern and contemporary dance. Most of my training comes from Mason Gross School of the Arts instructors, and living in a close proximity to Manhattan has allotted me the opportunity to study under active dancers and choreographers in the NYC area. For eight years I performed with the Washington Rock Modern Company and Washington Rock Ballet Company based in Dunellen, NJ, under the training of Cleo Mack. I’ve often performed along side the Cleo Mack Dance Project. My performance experience ranges from traditional Nutcrackers, to informal sight specific works like “The Outlet Dance Project” at Grounds for Sculpture, to renditions of The Rite of Spring. I began making and formally performing my own choreography at the age 16. Since then I’ve showed work on a variety of stages, and have made both solos on myself, others, and group pieces of a plethora of sizes. I’ve set work for both Washington Rock Dance and the Watchung Hills Regional High School Dance Ensemble. As an undergraduate at The Ohio State University, I have performed in guest faculty work by Chien-Ying Wang. In early 2017 I will be performing my first work as a college student in the Dance Department’s Winter Concert. I am currently pursuing my BFA in dance and a BA in History at The Ohio State University.
