I grew up in a tiny rural town about 6 hours from Sydney and attended the only dance school available. I started taking ballet and jazz classes when I was about 5, and slowly started picking up other styles as I got older and became more dedicated.
I began competing very young, and as I got older, I started travelling around more to experience dancing against people from larger dance schools.
Competing was the easiest way for me to dance as much as possible, as small country towns (although supportive of the arts), don’t really have many opportunities. As I got a little older, I started travelling to and from Sydney to attend classes and workshops and take part in different school related dance troupes. There was a point where I was travelling to Sydney every couple of days, I was away dancing more than I was at school most of the time. In 2016, I managed to convince my mum to let me move to Sydney by myself to continue my training at Brent Street performing arts.
I was only 15 at the time, so moving away from home was tough, but it was what I wanted to do, and I’m so glad I did, because Sydney is just a pool of opportunities. At Brent street I train in singing, acting and dancing (all styles) 6 days a week, and on top of that I am finishing my schooling.
In 2017, I was lucky enough to have won a full scholarship to attend the BUILDABEAST convention in LA, which allowed me to fly to the states and train for a couple weeks.
This year I have released my first concept dance video in collaboration with Lorcan Power, and am planning to release many more in the future to showcase my choreography and movement style.”
