Symone grew up in Los Angeles, CA where she first started out as a gymnast and switched over to dancing at the age of 10. She was trained in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical and hip hop at MNR Dance Factory. Symone went to Loyola University Maryland where she joined the dance company which was one of the largest student run organizations on campus. She was named one of the captains after her freshman year, and spent the following three years choreographing and directing the winter and spring shows along with 4 other captains. Symone became President of this dance company in her senior year. She graduated Loyola with a double major in public relations and video media with a minor and marketing. Symone moved to NY after college and now works at a media agency. Symone is so excited to be choreographing for DanceWorks New York City for the first time!
