My name is Reese and I have lived in Colorado my whole life. I began dancing at a decently young age, studying at Encore Dance Studio and Mpact Dance Project where I trained in every style with the intention to be a diverse dancer. I am currently a student at MSU Denver double majoring in dance and psychology. Alongside Dance Arts Studio, I teach at Mpact Dance Project and Flatirons Dance. I have done work as a choreographer for various organizations such as M.O.P.S, Cherokee Trail High school, MSU Denver, and Mpact Dance Project. I couldn’t imagine life with out dancing and I have fully enjoyed my first year being apart of the Dance Arts family.
