Summary

My first experience as a dancer was through the core technique training of rhythmic gymnastics. I trained intensively and competitively as a rhythmic gymnast from the ages of 9 to 15. I was able to become a national rhythmic gymnastics champion. As part of our technique training, each gymnast had to take ballet class. I was then able to explore my dancing abilities at RNB Dance Theatre and Arts in Vancouver. Being able to freely express my thoughts and creativity through my body made me realize that dance is necessity in my life. I then began to take ballet, jazz, contemporary, modern, and sometimes, hip hop lessons at the RNB Dance studio. I competed in solos, duos, and group performances throughout numerous dance festivals in Vancouver as well as received a scholarship in the Triple Threat Dance Convention held in Vancouver. Once I graduated from high school, I decided to move to Montreal to complete my bachelors degree. I joined McGill's Inertia Modern Dance Collective and was able to learn from other passionate dancers with various dance backgrounds, and further enrich my choreography skills.
