I was born with my own challenges in life. One being a rare neurological condition called Dandy Walker Syndrome; making movement, motor skills and coronation challenging for me. I am also legally blind, but I love who I am and would not change it for the world! Plus I get to have a special sidekick with me every step of the way, Walton my guide dog!
Dance has always been a big part of my life as far back as I can remember. My mom use to be a professional dancer, so from a very age I was always involved in the arts. I remember doing dance for kids at five, plays at my local children’s theatre group. But, when I was older when my love and passion for dance was born In high school I helped start a non profit with my Mom that made dance accessible for people with differing abilities.
I was a part of the performing ensemble and advanced class. Not only did I have my choreography debut but I started teaching my own classes.
Here is where I got to meet the amazing and wonderful Jay and Latizmo Hip Hop Productions.
I fell in love with dance and sharing my story through it. Telling my story and struggles through movement was one of the most amazing things in the world. Sadly the studio closed it’s doors seven years latter with my Mom’s diagnosis of terminal cancer. Since my Mom’s passing I had dream of teaching dance again and carrying her mission with our studio. I am looking forward to working with Jay Torres and once again having the chance to teach dance so we can all share our stories and passion through dance!
