training

I started off training as a Modern Dancer at the age of 15 at John Dewey High School in Brooklyn, NY under the awesome-ly inspiring tutelage of Ms. Jeannie Meizner.
 
Having the good fortune to work with some of the best continued during my time at City College. I had the opportunity to study with the late greats Thelma Hill for Modern & Walter Raines, Ballet. Exposed to guest artists such as Clay Taliafero, Henry Yu, Buzz Miller, et al. it was instrumental in the foundation of my technique & teaching style.
 
Continuing on with the great Frank Hatchett, I learned to 'Sell It!' & working with him was the gateway to a Musical Theatre career where I began to study voice with the Mavelously Magnificent Kamal Scott, the Fabulous-ly Fantastic Mary Rodgers, & the Indescribably Immense Mario Sprouse, in addition to taking various acting classes in the city.
 
I am a Magna Cum Laude graduate from the Leonard Davis Center for the Performing Arts at City College, and I hold a B.F.A in Dance.
