Monica began dancing at The Dance Collective in 2011. Participating in classes at the company fostered Monica’s love for dance and performing. In 2013 in recognition of her dedication to dance, Monica was awarded the Elementary Scholarship. Monica is trained in the styles of ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary and hip hop. She has also enhanced her training through taking workshops with international artists such as Michael Schwandt, Reed Luplau and Daniel Rasso and is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience with younger dancers. Monica enjoys being able to work with these dancers to help them achieve their potential and develop their own love for dance.
