2010 BIO:
Since my term as DOTY I have spent a lot of time working, interning, and dancing in New York City. I decided to make a switch and take classes in the city. When I'm not in the city, I have been receiving great training at a local ballet studio taking classes such as ballet, adagio, leaps and turns, and stretch. Recently, I had the opportunity of doing an internship assisting broadway professionals teach choreography from famous shows. I also filmed an episode of the Japanese version of MTV's Made called "The Great White Way" in New York where I was one of the dancers. I had the opportunity of filming a video called Dance Power for the National Leukemia Foundation with Desiree Robbins and Joe Tremaine. Finally, I have been asked to help with pre-production (choreography and staging) for 9 to 5 the Musical on tour.

I am currently going to be a junior in high school and I will be seventeen in October. Along with being an honor student, I have received many academic awards for achievement. Another honor is that my year after DOTY I became a member of the Tremaine Performance Company. I have had such a great year as a DOTY and am still having a great time being in the company. Thank you Tremaine, and I look forward for the years to come!
