Sydney started dancing in Cape Coral, Florida at the age of 3, moved to Maryland at the age of 8 and continued dancing at various studios including Chesapeake Arts Center, Susan Ina Dance Studio and Creative Force Dance Center. Sydney studied Ballet, Acrobatics, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary and Hip Hop. She danced recreationally and competitively, and had the opportunity to participate in special performances around the state including a benefit show for Kennedy Krieger called Dancing for Common Ground in honor of dancers with disabilities which she credits as one of the proudest moments of her dance career. While she took a short break from dancing to focus on her studies in high school, she found other ways to pursue her passion for the arts including organizing and choreographing the first school musical and becoming the first mascot at Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School, where she graduated with honors in 2016. After graduation Sydney began working, studying Pre Law through Penn Foster where she earned her Paralegal Certification and returned to dancing. She is now working as an Optician, which she loves and plans to pursue through continued education and training. She has also been working the front desk, substituting and assisting with classes at CFDC for the past 2 years and is anxious to join our team and share her passion for Acro, dance and creativity with all of her students!
