10 days away from #babe18 #immaxogio
audition results so thought I’d see if my body remembered the audition piece and it came back so fast haha I don’t think I’ll ever forget it 😂🙌🏼 Also wanting to give this piece a go again and see how it felt after all the training I’ve been doing over the summer. Been working especially on dancing bigger. Still have a ways to go but slowly seeing progress! 💪🏼
Good luck to everyone waiting on results!! 💙

Today is #worldsuicidepreventionday
. (IG deleted my last post)
Here is a throwback to a piece I created earlier this year that still means so much to me. Dance saves me everyday and I honestly don’t know if I would still be here today without it.
Reaching out for help is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength. Know that you are not alone and that you are loved.

(this version however by @alystoner
because copyright 😤 so shoutout to y’all 🙌🏼) It is also a national suicide prevention line.

A little clip of something I choreographed and never did anything with lol, maybe someday soon I’ll teach it or make a better quality vid 🤷🏼♀️ #brimapschoreo
Wishing the happiest birthday to @lando_coffy
today ❤️ Here’s a little throwback to one of my fav classes of his! Lucky to have you as a friend and your choreo pretty cool too I guess 💁🏼♀️😜 miss you and your classes!!!
TASTE // @yg @offsetyrn @tyga
Thank you to all of you who came out tonight ❤️ Heres a quick little solo 🙈
This was an intermediate level choreo class! Let me know if you want me to do more of these! #brimapschoreo
AUGUST 28th DROP IN HIP HOP CLASS
Email or DM me to pre register! Gonna be a good time!!! 🙌🏼
EVERYONE WELCOME! Hope to see lots of new and old faces ❤️
I remember one day for music class in grade 3, my teacher @rhondadraper
played some music and told us to draw what we thought the music looked like. That’s what I think about and how I feel when I’m dancing. I think of using my movements to draw the beats, sounds, & lyrics that I hear. Everyone will draw what they hear different and I just think that’s so cool.
Thought I’d post another living room dance to even out the feed haha
We can laugh until the morning or we can dance in the hallway 🎶
Some chill @anderson._paak
Well the last routine I posted was a little more masculine so here’s something a little more feminine 🙈 Haven’t pulled out the heels in little bit. As a 20 year old female in this industry I have to be able to dance feminine and sexy as well as in heels. I want to be as well rounded as possible and this style is something I struggled more with when it comes to getting into character and performing, especially in class. Also whoops almost fell on my back arch up 🙃 #brimapschoreo
Bryson Tiller vibes today. Choreographed this piece with certain goals in mind: 1) to dance more masculine and grounded 2) to slow things down and 3) to have more extension in my limbs and incorporate more stretching and full range movements
Hope you enjoy.

This class was one hell of a fight for me but I absolutely loved it 🔥 Please excuse the look of pure panic on my face the entire time I’m currently working on fixing that 😂🙃 Thanks for the dope class & choreo @djmarv625

Wearing my fav @imma.apparel
Ever since #babe18
, I’ve been thinking about the theme “under construction” 🚧 and how it applies in my life. Of course I’m always working towards being a better & stronger dancer but that’s surface level. Now a month later and I’ve finally come to a conclusion.
I am under construction; I am working on transforming from dancer to artist. To let my own mind and creativity lead my path, and to attempt to share the inner workings of my brain with the world.
Here a little raw clip of me, trying to paint with my body what my mind sees. Leave it to @danielcaesar
to always pull this artistry out of me.
🖤 Throwing it back to this piece because 1) I could literally dance to this song forever and dance it different every time and 2) Because this piece is so raw and I remember it feeling so good
I dance because it fills me with so much joy I can’t even describe it. Never forget the reason you started something in the first place.
THIS IS THE BEST DAY EVVAAAAAA 👑😭❤️ Class was everything and more, what an honour it was to learn from such an icon 🙏🏼 #royalfamily #crownsup
Yoooo this was a bop 🙌🏼Thank you @coby5678
for calling me out to do a solo today in class 🙏🏼 haha it was scary but a chance for growth 🎉
I love taking Coby’s classes because it helps me focus on my performance as well as the fact that he is left handed so a lot of his moves tend to start on the left, which I’m not as used to, and am not as comfortable with, so I find it helps me grow a lot in that sense 🙌🏼
Lil freestyle from last night 🌙
People always ask me how to get better at freestyling and I think the best advice I can give is daily movement exploration/experimentation. I try and spend at least 30 minutes a day with a different vibe, and just let the music lead my movement. I like to film myself as well so I can go back and critique the things I like and don’t like. You just gotta let go and try new things. You have no idea how many videos I have of myself failing at trying new things and it’s honestly hilarious. Maybe one day I’ll make a compilation of them all 😂
Thanks @_kenyaseeme_ @aj511
for such a hype class yesterday 🙌🏼 I’m in the red sweatpants dancing with my girl @yasvocals
to the right in the grey sweatshirt!
Wishing this guy the best of luck on his new adventures in Vancouver ❤️ you’re gonna kill it @mitch.blanchard
🙌🏼 Miss dancing with ya!!
Throwback to the early stages of this piece I choreographed
Was looking through some old videos and found this piece I choreographed last year but it kept getting deleted because of copyright,...let’s see if it works now #throwbackthursday
A little late night dancing just because
Part 2 of 2 because Instagram won’t let me post more than 30 seconds of this song 🙃
Good to be back in your class again @lando_coffy

Good to back in your class again @lando_coffy
Decided to take 2 risks in class today:
1. Volunteering for a group
2. Taking my shirt off (don’t know where that came from but I was feeling it 😂💁🏼♀️) It kinda threw me off after for the dance and I almost slipped on it a couple times but hey, why not take risks in life? 🤷🏼♀️ Thanks for this amazing choreo & class @davioncoleman__

Heading back to LA tomorrow morning and needed one last garage freestyle sesh
A little solo from my class I taught a week or so ago. This was a very internal dance and truly tugged deep at my emotions. Reaching for something, coming close, and falling backward is a very rough explanation of this piece. Honestly don’t even really know what the song is about but there’s always been words that have stuck out to me that I connected with. After performing this it was like a weight was lifted. Crazy how dance can be like therapy.

Determined to take more heels classes in LA this time 🙌🏼 Song: Valet by @ericbellinger
classes so much lately I decided to re learn this favourite of mine 💁🏼♀️😍❤️ #milkshake
🥤🍦👅 10 days until I’m back in LA!! 💕💕 (sorry if music is off near end, stupid @instagram
A little freestyle to this bop that always makes me want to dance ❤️ Focused on footwork in this one and am honestly pretty proud because when I used to freestyle I would never really know what to do with my feet lol
We’re throwing it back to one of my self choreographed solos from last year for this #throwbackthursday
It’s definitely got some cringy moments for me to watch ahahah but there’s also some parts I really like! My transitions were awful though 😂 Hope you enjoy!
Always such a fun time with @dippdance
❤️🔥❤️ In the red pants 🙋🏼♀️💋 still getting used to dancing in this higher heel 🙈
Really needed this today. 2 ish weeks until I’m back in LA for #buildabeast2018
and to spend my summer there. This was not only one of my favourite dances I learned in LA but also the class environment this day was unforgettable. Choreo by @willdabeast__
Oops another mirror selfie 🤷🏼♀️🙈 Also how bomb is this tracksuit though 😍 #urbanplanet
Number One by @massari
Haven’t been feeling the greatest this week but pushed myself to dance anyways today so it’s definitely not my strongest but it got me movin 🙌🏼
Yup definitely posted the untrimmed version earlier 🙃 So here’s the one I meant to post lol 🤷🏼♀️
Feeling out some feelings in the studio the other day
Back home = back at it with the bedroom freestyle sessions (and @Instagram
back at it with the laggy audio ugh)
Loved this combo so much 🙏🏼 Always a pleasure in @coby5678
Wednesday classes! Highly recommended especially if you want to work on performance! 🙌🏼❤️
🎶: Wait for it - Hamilton The Musical 📍: @mdcdance
to the thing that gives me so much joy in life. ❤️ Thowback to this little freestyle.
to this fun combo! I think this was the last time I taught class in Kelowna 😱 Can’t wait to teach again in a couple weeks! Stay tuned for more info!! I’m hoping to do a range of classes from adult heels, to contemporary hip hop, to 16 and under and even tour choreography!! Who’s excited!!?? 🙋🏼♀️
It’s been a minute since I’ve danced in heels (surprisingly haven’t done many heels classes out here) but planning on taking a class later this week so felt the need to practice 😂 Made up a little combo. I’ve been doing a lot of hip hop lately but have kind of forgotten how it really feels to dance like a woman, which is very important in this industry.
🙌🏼💙🌎 (which should be everyday) Let’s respect our planet and keep it beautiful 💙 Probably the most beautiful place I’ve ever danced 😍 what a feeling I tell ya
HERE IS MY #dancewithjanet
SUBMISSION!!! Please tag the queen @janetjackson
👑 It would mean the world to me ❤️🌎🙏🏼 This is a chance of a lifetime. Janet’s music never fails to make me want to dance and always filled me up with so much joy.
*I recommend watching it with headphones to get the full experience and hear all the back beats and basses* 🎶: Damn Baby @janetjackson
Lil snippet from @willdabeast__
class the other night 🙏🏼🙌🏼 This was a fun one but a challenge! I really need to work on letting go more when I dance and stop overthinking so much because I know it feels way better to let loose, get out of my head, and just dance! Definitely a hard thing to overcome though, but’s it’s a work in progress 💙
Finally got the chance to take class from @scott4syth
the other day!!!! 😱 I was so close to getting the choreo in class so I was determined to get it outside of class. I’ve always loved Scott’s comedic and entertaining style and how he makes it look so effortless when in really this piece was fast damn 😂
Ooooo this class was a PUSH for me and I absolutely loved it 🙏🏼 thanks @djmarv625
for this choreo, for the push, and for your different and awesome style of teaching 🙌🏼 Not my strongest, but this class was a part of the process of growth and I could feel it 💪🏼
