Olivia began training in ballet at age four. She likes to think she has come a long way, although her teachers at the Contra Costa Ballet Centre and ABT summer intensives sometimes think otherwise. Olivia’s favorite roles include Lilac Fairy under ABT Ballet Mistress Susan Jones, and the Mad Hatter under Robert Dekkers, one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to watch.”
When she is not in the studio, Olivia can be found advocating for the environment and eating cupcakes at Baked & Wired (sometimes at the same time). She is looking forward to learning new dance styles and getting to know a great group of girls as part of GUDC!
