Lydia grew up in Kingwood, Texas. There she danced at a competitive and performance based studio that allowed her to do everything from gymnastics, jazz, and tap to pre-professional pointe. During her summers, she attended many summer intensives focusing on a variety of styles based in contemporary, ballet and modern. One summer, Lydia was able to be a chaperone and teachers assistant at a Joffrey Intensive. In 2016 she received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in dance at the university of Arizona. Their triple tack program (Ballet, Modern and Jazz) is mainly performance based, however she was able to finish her degree with a teaching methods unit. Then in 2017, she moved to Rochester to dance with RochesterCity Ballet and still does today. Through the years, she has been teaching dancers around the country with all different age groups, from three to sixty-five years old. Lydia loves the variety and commitment that each individual brings to the table. She values honesty, kindness and tries to bring a sense of quirkiness that is hers, to the studio.
