Performing in the MFA dance concert 2018!
What plans or goals do you have post-graduation?
I have accepted a full time job as a software engineer at ServiceNow. I will continue dancing by going to dance classes in the Seattle area. I will also look and apply for small dance projects and residencies and also keep creating work with friends and artists I have gotten to know through my time here at UW Dance.
