Miss Vanessa began her dance training in 2007 at The Children’s Ballet where she trained in ballet, pointe, and modern dance. While there, she was a student teacher, and choreographed for the end of the year shows. This inspired her to continue her dance journey by attending Anderson University after her high school graduation. Her technique expanded to include tap, jazz, dance composition, and improvisation.
While at Anderson, she has participated in numerous shows and worked with fantastic teachers like Christine Thacker, Debra Silveus, Doug King and others.
She also had the opportunity to dance with Gregory Hancock Dance Theater in the premiere of “EXODUS” and danced as an intern in their recent production of “Violin Under the Bed.” She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Dance Business in December 2019 and now serves as the Assistant Artistic Director of The Children’s Ballet and teaches ballet at Dance Connection.
