TOP DANCE STORIES:
I started dancing right after I took my first steps as a toddler and I joined my first dance team at the age of 5. I loved dance and I won a lot of trophies in almost every competition I took part in. I continued dancing throughout my teenage life and earned a spot on the varsity high school dance team. I was out partying with my friends, three months before my graduation when I got into a car with a friend who had been drinking.
I was born in Sun Valley, Idaho in a family that had no exposure to ballet. I began dancing at the age of three. My parents later moved to Colorado when I was seven years and that’s when I realized that I wished to pursue Ballet as a professional dancer. I was quite determined towards achieving my goal and therefore, I took my dream one step further by joining the Colorado Ballet Academy at age 12.
I was born with a rare congenital disorder that affects the muscles and the joints, it’s called Arthrogryposis. I’ve had 16 surgeries so far and the first one took place when I was 7 months old and last one was at 17 years old. I was always an active kid and skateboarding was my passion until I could no longer do it after one of my surgeries and that’s when I turned towards dance. The amazing thing about break-dancing is creating your own style.
