About Me: I’ve been dancing since I was 3 and recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in dance from the University of Hawaii. As students, two friends and I performed on scholarships in Tasmania, Australia, at the international dance festival 10 Days on an Island. Next I’m planning to move to L.A. or New York to pursue my art and to choreograph for my cousin Kayaz, who recently signed with Jive Records.
