PREBALLET, BALLET & POWER Pilates
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.
