I have been in Billings my whole life and started dancing when I was 3. I did ballet, tap, baton, and jazz up until I was about 7, where I decided I only wanted to do ballet. I took ballet up until high school and was part of the dance team at Skyview. There I was introduced to hip hop, pom style dancing, and did baton as well. I participated in the Big Sky State games when Dance was first considered a sport in Montana. Our team took gold in all our categories. I took some time away from dance after high school and returned once my son showed interest in dance. Ballet has always been a love of mine and I am so glad I get the opportunity to share it with my young dancers.
