WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE? I grew up a competitive dancer. I attended the University of Alabama to pursue a degree in Dance. I was also Captain oft he Alabama Dance Team during my final season. I completed the Broadway Dance Center Professional Semester while in college. Upon graduation, I moved to New York City to begin auditioning professionally! I immersed myself into the Musical Theatre/Broadway realm that NY has to offer. I have been fortunate enough to perform in an array of professional arenas. My most favorite dance gig thus far includes performing in the ensemble of Mamma Mia alongside a multitude of Broadway veterans!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC? I knew that auditioning for DCC was a goal of mine in August 2015 when I first visited AT&T Stadium during an Alabama season opening game. I had the pleasure of meeting DCC Paige and received a private tour. I will never forget the feeling when I stepped foot into the DCC locker room. I had chills and knew that this defining moment would impact me forever!
PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: Making this team is one of my proudest accomplishments! One of the qualities about myself that makes me proud is that I am eager to reach my goals and that I am very career-driven. Being a DCC embodies immense success in my eyes and I am so thankful to be here!
IN 10 YEARS FROM NOW I WILL … hopefully have a family of my own, feel fulfilled by my career aspirations and accomplishments, and change lives through fitness and nutrition!
