How did it feel when you found out you’d be on Season 3?
When I found out I was gonna be on Season 3 I was super humbled, grateful, excited beyond belief, determined and ready to give everything I have. I knew it was gonna be an experience of a lifetime and I couldn’t wait to get on that stage.
What style are you performing, and why?
I am performing in the style of contemporary. I find myself in this style as it is an even combination of lyrical, jazz, and acro, which is exactly what I love to do.
How long have you been dancing, or dancing with your group?
I have been dancing since the age of 7.
Where do you draw inspiration from? Who/what inspires you?
The competitive and determined side of me draws inspiration from my parents, my mom is an Olympic level gymnastics coach and my dad a 3 time Olympic gymnast. I am always trying to challenge myself in new skills, whether it’s jumps, turns, tricks, I’ll always take it on. Aside from that, I’ve had many inspirations growing up in the dance world including the Lupien family (Owners of Canadian Dance Company) who shaped me into the dancer I am today, along with choreographers such as Teddy Forance, Mandy Moore, Travis Wall and many more. Also, my family and my boyfriend Myles Erlick inspire me everyday.
