Profile I am 18 years old and I graduated high school early in January of 2015. I focused on an accelerated program so I would be prepared for a year round ballet school for fall of 2015. I attended Ellison Ballet year round for a full year and currently train at Master Ballet Academy and dance with Phoenix Ballet. I am currently open to opportunities for 2018-2019 with a professional company.
