We are so proud of all of our XDA alumni and continue to watch and support them as they follow their dreams!
After my time at Xplosive Dance Academy, I continued my dance training at a college level. I go Purchase College Conservatory of Dance working to get my Bachelor of Fine Arts in May 2024. I have been part of works by Martha Graham and Bill T Jones. I have been a part of, and performed at the Earl Mosely summer intensive as well as Gallim’s Dance Company’s summer intensive. As of right now I am working on creating my own work/piece called “For You For Me For You” that will be performed by 5 dancers in April.
After graduating from high school, and Xplosive Dance Academy, I am now attending Point Park University Conservatory of Performing Arts to pursue a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in dance with a concentration in ballet. I was awarded two scholarships, one being for academics and the other for the dance conservatory. While attending Point Park I have had the opportunity to work with Twyla Tharp, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Robyn Mineko Williams, students of Bob Fosse and Martha Graham plus many more.
Since I have graduated from high school and Xplosive Dance Academy I have made my dream a reality and am performing full time as my career. I have been given various opportunities to perform for theme parks throughout the Orlando area such as, Universal, Disney, and Seawold. I am currently a part of Walt Disney Worlds Festival of the Lion King show in Animal Kingdom and the Sesame Street parade in Seaworld Orlando.
Since I have graduated from high school and Xplosive Dance Academy I have had the opportunity to take my talents to a collegiate level. I joined the MSU hip hop dance team then transferred and became a Golden Delight which is part of NCAT Marching Band. From there I have had the opportunity to dance professionally, and I am currently a dance instructor.
After graduating from high school and leaving XDA, I am now a member of DANZA Dance Company at the University of Florida. DANZA is one of UF’s Premier Dance Companies and we perform at various events not only on campus, but all over. Some of my favorite events include dancing in various university competitions and UF’s very own homecoming parade!
