Hometown: Airdrie, Alberta
What is your dance/performance background: I began dancing at the age of just three years old, and I then began dancing competitively at the age of five till I was eighteen years old. As well as I started professionally performing at the age of eight through The Young Canadians for ten years. I have a background in ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, and tap. All of which I believe prepared me for auditioning for the Outriders.
Why did you decide to audition for the Outriders: I wanted to continue my dance education, as well as I always admired the Outriders. I had heard from various friends that the Outriders were not only a team, it was like a family and the experiences you gained from the team were unimaginable. I also loved that being an Outrider gives you an opportunity to be an ambassador for this city and give back to the community.
What is your top Outriders appearance to attend: My top favourite Outrider appearances are our visits to the Alberta Children’s Hospital and our Little Outriders camp.
Favourite charity: I have too many favorites so here are my top 3: Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids, Closer to Home, and Kids Upfront. All of these charity organizations help to ensure that the kids of Calgary have everything they need, whether that be food, loving support systems and families that are close to them, or experiences they’ve always dreamed of being a part of.
Favourite game day song: Just For Me [feat. SZA] – SAINT JHN
Favourite style of dance: Jazz
Favourite thing about Calgary: I love that Calgary has big city vibes while still being so close to the mountains.
Favourite pastime: I love staying active as well as hanging out with friends and family!
