I am most looking forward to finishing out my senior year dancing with my teammates. Over the years of dancing at PCDC, I have formed super close relationships with a lot of the dancers here. They have help shape me as both a person and a dancer, and I know that my bond with them will last forever.

8. What advice would you give to younger dancers?

The dance industry can be pretty judgmental weather that judgement is coming from ourselves or others. Just always keep in mind the reason why you’re dancing and keep a positive and uplifting attitude.
