BFA Class of 2021

Where did you train?

I trained at Columbia City Jazz Company in Columbia, South Carolina, from age 9 to age eighteen. There I studied ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, tap, and modern.

What inspires you?

I’m inspired by learning itself and the constant trial of new and different things. Being open-minded is crucial to my growth as a dancer, and I love to be challenged by unfamiliar styles or concepts.

Describe yourself in three words.

Proactive. Committed. Sarcastic.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

The first time I drove to my dance studio, I ran into it.

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

I feel so honored to not only be surrounded by such amazing dancers, but also to be training in such a brilliant program. USC is offering me the perfect opportunity to grow in both dance and my academic interests. The ability to help shape such a new and revolutionary program promises room for personal exploration and discovery, and I can’t wait to see how Kaufman will change me over the next four years.
