She has performed both traditional ballets and new works under renowned mentors such as Josh Beamish, Simone Orlando, Gioconda Barbuto, Karin Averty, Veronica Tennant, Brian MacDonald, David LaHay, Ana-Maria Campos, Susan Toumine, Mercedes Bernardez, Diane Van Schoor, Edmund Stripe, Anna Marie Holmes, Erik Campos, Edgar Zendejas, Samuel Abramian, Anne Dryburgh and Christophe Maraval, to name a few.
