What is your performance background: I started ballet when I was 4, than moved into tap and jazz, and as I grew as a dancer my focus was in Modern, Lyrical, Contemporary and Hip-Hop. I have been dancing since then. I also taught dance for four years. I cheered in Junior High and part of High School. I was also on my High School pom team. After wrapping up teaching dance I began coaching Cheerleading and I did that for three years.
Best Memory as an Octane Member: I have so many great memories over the past three years, dance boot camps, the photo shoots, charity work. The one thing that stands it is a promo we did in the first season where we went via plane to Fort Mac for the day to perform, we were picked up in a Limo, and we met the “The Biggest Losers” Bob Harper. It was quite the rock star experience and definitely unforgettable.
