I started training with Vlad when I was 15 years old. I have been a part of six BTA shows as a lead and an apprentice. The amount of knowledge I have gained from these experiences is immeasurable. It has contributed not only to my career as a dancer, but to my growth as a human being. The teamwork skills necessary to create a successful BTA show has helped me in all of my endeavors. I also learned much from Vlad's creative process which has helped me with my own choreography. I am now working as a choreographer and dancer in Toronto. I have worked on many TV/film productions including Suicide Squad, The Next Step, Backstage and Make It Pop. I have also danced for many artists including Nick Jonas and FKA twigs.
