Actor, Singer & Dancer
Master Teacher & Choreographer
I'm an American actor with a story that spans from ballet to Broadway. After years as a Soloist at Carolina Ballet, I came to New York and 9-months later, was in rehearsal with Kelsey Grammer building the 3-time Tony award winning revival of La Cage Aux Folles. Straight from there, I joined the cast of Chicago - kicking off the Cellblock Tango as Liz was a total dream! After two National Tours, I made my principal debut as Cassie in A Chorus Line. Then, when Christopher Wheeldon was putting his premiere cast together for Paris, I joined An American in Paris; I also opened the show on Broadway, performed in the Tony's (again!) and was thrilled to go on a number of times for the brilliant Veanne Cox as Madame Baurel.
I have taught for more than 20 years. Currently, I work with the trainees at both Joffrey Ballet and Jazz &Contemporary.
Past students include Ariana De Bose (the original Bullet in Hamilton), Sarah Pippin (2-time NYCDA National Champion), and Ms. Lauryn Hill (the Fugees). I have judged for many organizations, including NYCDA National Finals, taught for a number of conventions and enjoy teaching as a guest or resident artist around the country. I love creating for aspiring artists and my pieces have won Best Choreography. Thanks for your interest :)
