Redwood City, CA
BFA Class of 2021
Where did you train?
I trained at Bay Area Dance School in Los Altos, CA. I was mentored by Leyla Boissonnade from the time I was a toddler, and moved to her new studio at the beginning of high school. I could not be more grateful for the opportunities given to me there.
What inspires you?
The younger dancers back at home. Their uninhibited love of imagination and movement is what I strive to feel everyday in my own dance classes.
Describe yourself in three words.
Curious. Frank. Loyal.
Tell us a fun fact about you.
I keep all my fortunes from fortune cookies!
What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman?
Being a part of this new movement means that I have the wonderful responsibility of creating and sharing my art, and I can cultivate the idea that dance is not only an activity, but it is also a lifestyle.
