I’m a professional dancer, choreographer, public speaker and passionate educator. I split my time between Montreal and Los Angeles, I travel the world with some pretty cool artists, and I like to promote self-love wherever I go. I’m a joy-seeker, a day-dreamer, a sucker for vanlifing and I’m the sister with the dad jokes. Yep.

A little about me...

I didn’t always know IT was possible to make a career out of dance.

As a late bloomer who started training in dance at 15 years old, I was filled with insecurities.
“I’m not classically trained, I’ve got bad feet, I’m not flexible.”.
The list went on and on which made me doubt myself and my capabilities.

The more I pursued dance, the more the reality of this industry kicked in. Auditions made me nervous, rejection made me sad, and financial instability made me worry. I felt stuck. I was training a bunch but I wasn’t seeing the results I dreamed of… until I realized I was way more in control of my future than I was led to believe.

Through trial and error and with the help of multiple mentors, I gained the knowledge and acquired the tools needed to curate a winning mindset. I built my brand, I practiced networking, I prioritized self-love, I stepped out of my comfort zone, I aimed for financial stability and career longevity.

I started getting noticed, I won scholarships, I got hired at auditions, I connected with choreographers I idolized, I was paid to travel for dance. I had done it! Not only did I become a professional dancer, but dance became my one and only stream of income. I was constantly booking jobs and creating new and exciting opportunities for myself. I still am. 

Some of my credits include:
Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Lopez, Meghan Trainor, Ariana Grande, Reitmans, The Backstreet Boys, Dua Lipa, Madonna, Cirque Du Soleil, Nicole Scherzinger, Pharrell Williams, Coachella, Nick Jonas, Reebok, Chanteurs Masqués, International Festival DansEncore, Rock In Rio, Xtina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj, John Mayer, Chris Brown, Bebe Rexha, Jason Derulo, Holt Renfrew, Super Bowl Halftime Show, Karol G, Sports Experts, Jane The Virgin, Hilary Duff, and more.

Who have I worked with?

I know you have lots of burning questions you want answered

such as...

Where can I find out about auditions?
Do I need to be represented to book a dance job?
Who's classes should I be taking?
How do I build my confidence, on and off stage?
What does a dancer’s salary look like?
How do I develop my brand?
How important is networking?
Should I be posting lots of dance videos on social media?
How do I apply for an O1 Work Visa to work in the USA?
Where can my parents seek information on dance as a career?
How do I stand out at a convention?
How do I avoid living paycheck to paycheck?
Do I have to move to a big city like Los Angeles or New York to build my career?
What does being an independent contractor entail?
Where can I find like-minded dancers and build a support system?
How do I aim for career longevity?

and many more, right?

Well...let's get to it, shall we?!
