Soon to be a graduate from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance, I have had the opportunity to gain extensive knowledge in all aspects of dance, particularly in performance. Performing professionally with Nicolay Dance Works as well as in university concerts, I have emerged a mature and confident artist ready and excited to continually develop my unique artistic voice in the professional dance world.
