West Chester, PA

BFA Class of 2023

Where did you train?

Beginning at age 3, I trained in numerous styles of dance at The Rock School West, in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

What inspires you?

I try to pull inspiration from all around me, but one particular area I have always been super inspired by is the concept of individuality. Everyone’s unique thought process and one-of-a-kind nature fascinates me, and I draw a great amount of inspiration from everybody’s differences, and how they bring us together.

Describe yourself in three words.

Optimistic, enthusiastic, compassionate.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

A fun fact about me is that I have SUPER long toes, so lengthy and articulate that they almost resemble fingers. We call them tingers!
