Music ^_^

I love to perform! I come from a musical family, so I gravitated to violin, dance, and musical theater as a kid. Growing up in Chicago allowed me to take advantage of some great performance opportunities, and I’ve been lucky enough to perform in orchestras all over the country as well as dance ensembles and musicals during my youth. I’m trying to stay involved in the performance arts; if you’re in Boston and have suggestions for great ensembles, let me know!

Orchestras and Choirs 

I primarily studied violin under Mr. David L Howard in Chicago. Below, I’m listing all of the ensembles I’ve been in because it’s a small musical world. Some of the coolest musicians in Chicago came through my elementary school, Poe, and Chicago’s All-City Ensembles, both under the direction of my dear teacher Mr. Barry Elmore 🙂

Dance~

I’ve dabbled in a lot of dance styles including jazz and tap when I was in grade school and Korean pop, bollywood, bhangra, bellydance, and more starting in high school. Below is a playlist of my dances throughout college, some of which I choreographed 🙂

 

Currently, I dance on my own (alone in my basement mostly) and through my favorite workout spot, ((305)) fitness in Boston and DC!
