What inspires you?

As an artist, inspiration finds me when I’m surrounded by people that are truly passionate about what they do. In the presence of those type of people, my creativity naturally flows. I’m also greatly moved by music; each different piece of music inspires me to channel a unique style and persona in my dancing.

Describe yourself in three words.

Bold. Humorous. Motivated.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

My hidden talent is whistling.

What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman?

To put it simply, it’s a dream come true. I strongly believe that USC Kaufman students will play a large role in the future of dance. Between the world-class faculty, the incredible facility, and the diversity of each student, it is a perfect marriage for dance education.
