with Kate Elias

I grew up dancing in Illinois.  I came east to earn my BA in Dance at Middlebury College ’05, where I studied with Penny Campbell, Amy Chavasse, Andrea Olsen and Peter Schmitz.  Since then I’ve worked with many artists, including Jane Comfort & Company, Kate Elias, Polly Motley, El Circo Contemporaneo, Tiffany Rhynard’s Big APE, David Appel, and Lida Winfield.  I’ve had the opportunity to tour throughout Mexico, Cuba, Qatar, Europe and the USA.  With grant support from The Field, The VT Arts Council, The Flynn Center, The VT Arts Endowment Fund and The National Endowment for the Arts, I’ve shown my work in venues such as Bates Dance Festival, Dixon Place, The Flynn Theater, The Ionion Center of Kefalonia and The Rococo Theatre in Prague.  Based now in Connecticut, I continue to choreograph, teach and perform as an independent artist.
