Where did you train?

At the age of 5, I began dancing competitively at Northwest Dance and Acro in Marysville, WA. From there, I continued training at Turning Pointe Dance Centre, Westlake Dance Center and danced on the competitive company of First Class Dance, where I trained in many genres and made lasting connections through dance conventions.
