Born in Prince Albert Canada, in 1990 my passion for dance began at the young age of 4 where I started my first dance classes at the Performing Arts Warehouse. At the age of 11 I was accepted to The National Ballet School of Canada in Toronto, where I then attended until graduating in 2008 as Student Council President. During my time at the ballet school, I had the opportunity to explore my dance further with an exchange program at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York.
Upon graduating, I was then accepted to Codarts Rotterdam Dance Academy where I entered as an advanced student into the 3rd year of the 4 year program. In my last year of studies I was an apprentice at Dance Works Rotterdam under direction of Ton Simons and in 2010 graduated from Codarts receiving my Bachelors of Dance.
In fall 2010 I began working at The International Dans Theater in Amsterdam, under the direction of Jan Linkens. I spent two years with the company, performing and touring in contemporary and modern ballet productions around the Netherlands. After my time with the company, I was eager to explore and develop in other styles & fields of the dance scene and began working as a freelancer.
Soon after I started touring as a dancer and aerialist for Sensation Source of Light in 2013 performing in Romania, Russia & Dubai. Since then I have worked as a dancer & aerialist for Sensations premiere shows in the Amsterdam Arena including “Into the Wild” 2013, “The Legacy” 2015, “Angels & Demons” 2016 and will also be performing in “The Final” in July 2017.
My experience in television began in 2012 with live broadcastings of “It’s Showtime” Galas performing live in The Netherlands, Poland & France. I since then have had the opportunity to work as a dancer on other TV Programs and live broadcastings including The Voice of Holland Liveshows, Superkids, Lekker Nederlands, Hollands Got Talent Liveshows and Radio 538 Concerts.
Branching out into the commercial field gave me the opportunity to collaborate with various music artists over the past few years. Music videos include Money- Next of Kin, Feel like Dancing – Nils van Zindt ft Sharon Doorson, & Lullaby – Bassanova. I’ve also had the opportunity to perform and choreograph concert visuals for artists such as Guus Meeuwis & DJ Armin van Buuren and performed and choreographed a liveshow with Kenny B. Currently I am performing as a dancer with artist Fais on his 2017 tour.
In January 2017 I began working as a dancer for The Dutch National Opera in the production of Prins Igor where I worked with modern choreographer Itzik Galili. This version of the Opera was originally choreographed on the Metropolitan Opera in New York and directed by Russian stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov.
Other commercial brands that I have had the opportunity to choreograph & perform for include Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Fiat, Marlies Dekkers and Hugo Boss’s ‘The Scent’ Launch with performances in The Netherlands & Belgium.
My passion for fitness has led me to working as a model and dancer for the brands Nike, Reebok and Asics, working in countries such as Denmark, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and The Netherlands. With the launch of this website, I will be starting a fitness blog where I will share more about my passion and knowledge in training & fitness.
