She was quickly swept up into the world of dance training at the Ballet Conservatory with Sandra Allen, while serving Orem High School Dance Company President, Secretary and her Drill Team's Head Drill Mistress. She was then encouraged to expanded her training with Rhonda Sevey at The Utah Academy of the Performing Arts on their Senior Performing Company while teaching Funk and dance to children with special needs there.
