BFA Class of 2023

Where did you train?

I originally trained at Artistic Fusion Dance Academy in Colorado but moved to Miami my senior year to train at Dance Town. I trained more intensely, focused more on the art of teaching and really fell in love with all forms of dance.

What inspires you?

I like to find inspiration in everything. Aside from dance, there is so much to be affected by in our world. All of the experiences I’ve had and all the people who have influenced me thus far in my life are my biggest inspirations. These empathetic, supportive & honorable people have inspired me to continue my craft with integrity and passion.

Describe yourself in three words.

Optimistic, loving, driven.
