Michelle was born in Georgia into a military family. She had the privilege to travel around the world from Europe to Asia and lived in Japan for years. At the age of 13, she knew that dance was something she wanted to pursue. She started off teaching herself routines on Youtube and around the age of 15 started choreographing her own dance pieces. She then started to travel to Tokyo by train (about an hour away from where she was living) almost every week to take dance classes at Boogiezone Utopia and take workshops from world-class choreographers or attend rehearsals for dance showcases.
Michelle is strong willed and adapts well to new situations and environments due to her father's work in the Air Force, and she has always been known for her maturity, work ethic and passion in dance.
After graduating from high school in 2013, she moved to her current home in Greenville, SC. She is now teaching Hip Hop classes in Greenville and Spartanburg, dancing with an all ladies salsa dance company named "Con Sabor Ladies," and continuing her dance education by attending conventions, workshops & master classes.
