Growing up in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Douglas has always had a profound love of the arts. She first explored this love of dance extensively, and is multi-faceted in many styles, such as tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, hip-hop, dancehall, and more. Dedicated to her love for dance, she continued her education at The College at Brockport, State University of New York. Upon completing her degree, she moved to New York City where she trained and studied commercial dance at Broadway Dance Center through its Professional Training Semester. This opportunity led her to further expand her skills and work with many industry choreographers, including Ryan Huffington, Dana Foglia, Luam, and Jae Blaze.
By cultivating such a deeper understanding of the arts, Douglas knew it was time to expand her skills and follow her dreams and move to Los Angeles, where she currently resides. She has been blessed with the opportunity to have been featured on Farfetch Christmas campaign, Keno x H&M fashion show, and the Vogue edition on Millennium Dance Complex, which was focused on women in the commercial industry. She also subs at Millennium Dance Complex teaching under her mentor, Jae Blaze. Douglas is a passionate and driven individual who loves what she does. Her mission is to share her findings with those who wish to grow and enjoy movements of the body.
