Dance & Theatre Educator /Choreographer
I am a dance and theatre educator, choreographer, actor, and model. I recently completed graduate school at NYU, receiving my M.A. in Dance Education with an emphasis in Ballet Pedagogy. I grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, and received my B.A. in Theatre & Drama from Indiana University. After building an extensive theatre resume, I moved to Los Angeles to focus on on-camera technique and joined SAG-AFTRA in my time there. I am an American Ballet Theatre certified teacher (Pre-Primary-Level 5) and have taught students of every age and skill level. I have taught in competitive and recreational studios, in public schools, and in conservatory style environments. I am passionate about bridging technique and performance, as my two greatest loves are ballet and musical theatre, and creating a student-centered learning environment. I am an active member of the National Dance Education Organization and as of Fall 2023, I am pursuing my PhD in Arts Education at Indiana University.
