I believe we should use our gifts to serve and encourage others…
Here are a few of my gifts:
From Sugarplum Fairy with Sawnee Ballet Theatre to Swanhilda for Ballet Southeast to the Evil Stepmother in Cinderella for Atlanta Ballet Fellowship Ensemble or a flirtatious gypsy in La Traviata with the Atlanta Opera, the stage is one of my happy places. I have strong artistry and versatile technique to portray a wide range of roles and can provide a partner for pas de deux work if needed. I’d love to dance with you!
In passing the arts to the next generation we should instill a sense of dignity, humble confidence, and discipline equipping them to be successful in whatever field they pursue. I love teaching ballet, contemporary, or conditioning (I am certified in Progressing Ballet Technique) to dancers ages 8+. I’m based in Atlanta but love to travel and meet new students. How can I serve your school?
Choreographically, I want to tell redemptive stories with excellence whether that be an arena of 20,000 for a conference opener, a music video, an original fairytale story ballet, or a special commission. I can work with your dancers (I love to work with students) or provide my own through Bluebird Uncaged. Let me know how I can to help bring your idea to fruition.
These life adventure stories we are given are meant to be shared. With a BA in Communications from Thomas Edison State University and having taken courses through the Passion Global Institute and other apologetic/evangelism trainings, I enjoy sharing encouragement to point people to Jesus. Whether that be in person or through writing a devotional/curriculum/article I’d be honored to share on topics such as identity, hope, stewarding your passion/calling, or practical tools to share the gospel with your group.
Here are a few examples of past work:
City Shoes w/ Victoria Canal

— I’ve been a guest teacher at numerous summer intensives around the US. I taught the DanceAbility program at Georgia Ballet which provides dance classes for children of different abilities and I also teach ESL online.
— I was a family group leader for a youth ministry for 7 years and I love investing in high school age girls.
— Sometimes I do background work for film as the industry is growing here in ATL. I’m comfortable on camera and open to expanding my screen acting skills.
