She later joined the Central Florida Ballet in 2011, under the direction of Vasile Petrutiu, Vladimir Bykov, and Natalya Bashkatova.

There she had the opportunity to dance the title role in Princeton Ballet School’s spring production of Giselle, and to be a part of Ethan Stiefel’s A Midsummers Night’s Dream, right before joining the school’s company as an ARB2 dancer in 2022 and then becoming an Apprentice soon after. She has taken part in productions such as Ethan Stiefel and Johan Kobborg’s Giselle, The Nutcracker, Stiefel’s VARIANTS and Wood Work, Arthur Mitchell’s Holberg Suite and more.
