One of Michelle’s earliest memories of performing is dancing and singing to The Beach Boys with her sister, while on top of surfboards in her parents’ garage. Since those childhood days, she has explored dance and the performing arts throughout her life. The addiction became quite clear in the midst of her 5-year involvement in winterguard. While in college, Michelle danced in a variety of modern, ballet, and jazz pieces, and worked as an interactive performer for Busch Gardens. After discovering a love for lindy hop, she joined South Florida’s “Explore the Floor” lindy troupe. Upon moving to San Francisco in 2006, Michelle has been involved with various dance community performances as both a dancer and choreographer.
