Performance Years: 1967-1983
Born in August 1967, I began classical ballet at age five. By age 10, I was dancing en pointe (on my toes), performing the role of Young Christina (played by Susan Lucci) on the popular televsion soap opera at that time, All My Children.
I attended the American Ballet Theatre School in New York City on an awarded full-time scholarship in 1978, where I had my formal training until the age of 15 in 1982.
In Spring of 1983, I was invited to become the youngest corp de ballet member of the Zurich Ballet, dancing on American tour under the artistic directorship of Rudolf Nureyev and performing on world class stages, such as the Kennedy Center and the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.
