Claire grew up dancing at Center Stage Dance and Theater School in NJ where she trained and competed in all styles of dance. In college, she was a member of the UMass Dance Team competing in Team Dance at NDA Nationals in Divisions 1 and 1A. After graduating with a B.S. in Chemistry and Math, she pursued a Masters degree at Northwestern University, while continuing to dance as a member of the student run tap group, Tonik Tap. In her two years with the group, she choreographed several tap pieces for their bi-annual shows. Upon moving to NYC and starting work as a Data Scientist, she wasn’t ready to give up dancing yet, so she joined DanceWorks New York City. This will be Claire’s 4th season with DWNYC and her first season choreographing!
