I've Moved With:
I started moving in the dance industry at 15 years old. As a principle dancer in the High School Musical movies 1,2,and 3, this experience set the tone for my dance career. My opportunities expanded from there to include featured dance roles in movies like Teen Beach Movie, No Strings Attached, and La La Land. To TV shows like Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist and Glee. To performing around the world with artists like Janet Jackson, Demi Lovato, and Katy Perry for three years on her Prismatic World Tour and Superbowl halftime performance. I moved into the world of Latinand Ballroom dance by joining the cast of ABC's Dancing With The Stars as a Troupe member for 5 seasons, 2 DWTS Live Tours and most recently in my debut season as a Pro Dancer with celebrity partner Johnny Weir. I have been so blessed to have had the most wonderful and "pinch me" moments thus far.
I Share Because:
I whole heartedly believe in the mission of Share The Movement and our goal to establish more diversity, equity, and inclusion to the dance community at a foundational level. As I look back on my journey, I want to share what was once shared with me. I had a wonderful circle of support that walked alongside me in my young dance journey. This circle so graciously provided access and opportunity that nourished my talent as a young artist, dancer, and girl. If it wasn't for them I would not have been equipped with the knowledge, training, inspiration and fearlessness to step into the unknown world of being a professional dancer at the young age of 15. I was blessed then and am still blessed now, recently being given the opportunity to represent black women in Ballroom dance on Dancing With The Stars. A first in the ballroom. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back and open my arms and heart to the next generation of dancers within the BIPOC community.
