Having been a professional ballet dancer for 8 seasons and a dance educator for over 15 years. My experience and training offer a unique perspective for private clients. Although ballet is a huge focus of my career, I have performed multiple styles at all 3 companies I have been a part of and I grew up doing Jazz, Modern, Lyrical, Contemporary, Ballet, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, and Tap. I have danced professionally with Nevada Ballet Theater, Teatrul Balet du Sibiu; Romania, and Portland Ballet of Maine. My education includes a BFA in dance from Point Park University. I am a graduate of Portland Ballet School's pre-professional program and have attended summer intensives at American Ballet Theatre, Festival Ballet of Providence, Point Park University, and Boston Conservatory. I am an ABT® Certified teacher, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Primary through Level 3 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum. I am also a certified Pilates Academy International instructor and have previously coached high school and college Field Hockey. My areas of expertise include Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Contemporary, dance for gymnasts, wedding dances, and choreography.
