Why Intrepidus Dance?
I wanted to dance for Holly because she is a good choreographer and teacher, I have much to learn from her, but most of all because she makes it fun to dance in this capacity. I like the company members and how they dance, everyone is really talented and exciting. The mission of the company is great and it fits in well right now with the rest of my life.
Why & when did you begin dancing?
I began dancing in the womb I think, but started professional training around the age of 9. I liked how it felt to dance, I liked the praise I got. Later found I liked the I could explore my emotions and the way it helped me as an escape or positive outlet I suppose.
What styles of dance do you specialize in?
Contemporary Ballet, Modern, Theatrical Jazz.
Who is your dance icon & why?
I really like Misty Copeland for challenging how we accept different body types in dance.
Describe yourself in one word:
Would you rather have super strength or super intelligence?

What do you do in your spare time?
Walk around Greenlake, take care of my mini-schnauzer Zoey, go to church lectures and groups, volunteer stuff, eat at restaurants with friends, go on dates, shop, Pilates, drink a lot of coffee, host parties and entertain...
Do you have any phobias?
Nope. But I don't like heights, or spiders, or snakes, or swimming in large bodies of water.
Lastly, what's a piece of advice/encouragement you would give to your 15-year-old self?
