Olivia has been in love with ballet since the age of eight and began formal training with local schools where she gained experience performing in the corps, and quickly advanced to dance a variety of soloist and principal roles. Olivia enjoyed dancing with Long Beach Ballet Ambassador’s to China where she studied with David Wilcox and instructors of China’s Guangzhou Ballet. She toured China twice, performing principal roles including “Odette” in Swan Lake. Olivia also feels privileged to have trained and performed with many great instructors, companies and artists from American Repertory Ballet, Sarasota Ballet Carreno-Barbieri Festival and Magaley Suarez’s  Florida Classical Ballet.
Some of her favorite roles have been “Aurora” and the “Lilac Fairy” in The Sleeping Beauty, “Ghost” and “Friend” in Our Town, “Hippolita” in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and as a soloist in Majisimo. She has also performed roles in more Nutcrackers than she cares to count including “Snow Queen” and “Sugar Plum Fairy”. Olivia is thrilled to be on staff at Irving ballet school where she can pass on her love of ballet to her students.
