Pre-Professional Training

Much gratitude to the many teachers and mentors who guided me during my pre-professional performance training, including:


  • the Teen Repertory Company (directed by Janet Louer) at the Actor's Training Center near Chicago
  • the Young Company actor training program (directed by John Maclay) at First Stage Theatre in Milwaukee
  • Julie’s Touch of Silver dance studio in Oshkosh (directed by Julie Seckar-Anderson), where I studied tap, hip-hop, jazz and ballet for 7 years and also danced in State, Regional, and National team competitions
  • the Boston University Summer Theatre Institute (BUSTI) for high-school students
  • the KIDS from Wisconsin musical theater touring company (formerly directed by Mark Dorn), with whom I performed as a singer/dancer for 3 consecutive summers, and also served as dance captain during my final summer in 2016
