Where did you train?

I began training at the age of nine in ballet, tap, and jazz at Creative Dance Center in Ashburn, VA. This was where I began competition dance. In seventh grade, I moved to Studio Bleu Dance Center, where I learned a variety of different styles of dance. At age 16, I moved to New York City with a full scholarship to The Ailey School as a part of their Junior Division Program, where I received intensive modern training. I was also a part of the PPAS/Ailey program affiliated with my performing arts school.
