Tell us about your dance experience!
I have been training since I was 2 years old. My mom who was a dancer/gymnast/contortionist in California began training me. I was independent for a long time till I started training in Las Vegas, Nevada, then moved and trained at Larkin Dance Studio in Minnesota. When my mom opened up her studio, I began my independent training with her again at her own studio. I hope to one day follow in her footsteps.
