Born and raised in Rhode Island, Ms. Olivia studied various styles of dance at the state’s premier company, Festival Ballet Providence. There, she trained on scholarship and performed as a Junior Company member in productions including the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Cinderella, and those by locally and nationally-renowned choreographers. After moving here to Washington, she was accepted as a member of the Bellevue College Dance Company. She has also been a year-round teacher’s assistant, as well as a volunteer teacher at camps and other non-dance related organizations. 

As a graduate from Eastern Washington University with a BS in Athletic Training and Board Certification, Ms. Olivia brings this background of kinesiology and injury management to the studio. Her goal is to help both dancers and non-dancers understand the mechanics of their bodies and learn how to best take care of them. She is currently working as a lead investigator developing a research study in the dance science realm. Additionally, this is Ms. Olivia’s second season as EBT’s Production Manager.
