From a young age, Michelle was part of a performance-based dance company in Maryland, where she was trained in jazz, hip-hop, ballet, and tap. She was a captain of her high school's competitive dance team; and in college, she joined a performance-based hip-hop team, called EnCore. While in college, Michelle also helped to lead members of her sorority, Sigma Delta Tau, in a few dance performances. Since graduating from the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business in 2011, Michelle has worked in the investment management industry in New York City. This is her sixth season dancing with DanceWorks New York City, and it is her first season choreographing. She is incredibly grateful for the life-long friends she has made through the DanceWorks community and is very excited to share her fierce and sassy vision this season!
