BFA Class of 2023

Where did you train?

I began my training at Dance Davidson in Davidson, NC. Starting my sophomore year, I continued my training at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts High School Program.

What inspires you?

I fuel my artistic mind by looking to nature, specifically the sky and water, culture, another individual’s art, and the basic human responses to life. I find that the natural phenomena of everyday life drive my inspirations.

Describe yourself in three words.

Idiosyncratic, Tenacious, Grateful.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I am one of the biggest cat people you will ever meet! I have shared my life with 6 cats (and counting).

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

Being a part of USC Kaufman is nothing less than an honor. This revolutionary program provides the skills needed for a present-day dancer to become an innovative, “artistic scholar” and to thrive in the field. I look forward to facing the next four years head-on while growing exponentially in my artistry and personal existence.
