The natural progression that brought me from dancer, to mom, to teacher, has greatly influenced my designs of comfortable and flattering dance, fitness, and lifestyle apparel to wear myself in my busy and active lifestyle, and for others with the same demands for their clothing.
First A Dancer
I began my professional training at The North Carolina School Of The Arts, continuing at George Balanchine's School Of American Ballet (S.A.B.) in New York City. I am so grateful to have been one of the last two dancers hand-picked by Mr. Balanchine to join his company. There I trained amidst the most amazing faculty at S.A.B., closely watching and learning from the inspiring dancers and staff of the New York City Ballet. Eventually, after particularly enjoying the many European tours with the company, I decided to move abroad, joining first the Compañia Nacional de Danza in Madrid, Spain and later, The Ballet du Capitole in Toulouse, France. Upon returning to the States, I rounded out my career dancing in Broadway musicals both on national tours and on the 'Great White Way' in New York City. While I contemplated my next steps, I continued to appear as a guest artist with ballet companies around the country.
New Life ~ New Name
After 30 years of dancing, in 2001 I stepped off the stage, retired from performing, and moved with my new family to begin a new life in Bethlehem , PA
