My Story

I began Irish dancing when she was 9 years old at Jessica Morgan’s School of Dance. I grew to love the family she created within her classes and eventually joined Crossroads Irish Dance Troupe when I was in 7th grade.

I have been able to take classes from renowned Riverdance and Lord of the Dance performers, as well as compete, or “feis”, and perform on stages in front of dozens of people. Performance was my favorite part of her Irish dance career, playing the role of Tweedle Dum in “Alice in Wonderland”, Scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz”, and Willy Wonka in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”.

Teaching is my new dance passion as she loves working with younger kids, as well as adults, in their new dance journey. Crossroads has been one of the most important parts of my life and I am grateful to my dance family for helping me grow as a person. I am currently a junior at VCU majoring in Political Science with a concentration in Political Theory with the goal to become a Social Worker.
