Meet our intern.

Hi there.  My name is Olivia and I’ll be interning with The Collective this summer.  I’ll be working with the co-directors to explore the inner workings of a dance company and immerse myself in the Baltimore dance scene.  My dance studio director started The Collective in 1999, I’ve performed in the Open Marley show, and I also took Sunday classes with The Collective in high school, so I am really looking forward to be working with a dance company I grew up around.

I just finished my sophomore year at Virginia Commonwealth University as a Dance & Choreography major.  This year I had the opportunity to dance in student and faculty works and even perform at the 2018 ACDA Mid-Atlantic South Gala Performance in March.  Earlier this year I attended American Dance Festival’s New York City Winter Intensive where I investigated the presence of the African diasporic in our Western modern dance practices.  In June I will be studying in DC with Company E where I will be learning repertory and performing a new work coordinated with the Spanish Embassy.

To help you better get to know me, below are five facts about me:

  1. I love hot yoga.
  2. Frank Ocean is my favorite artist.
  3. I have a pet cat named Biji.
  4. Ice cream is my favorite dessert, but I am lactose intolerant.
  5. I am the youngest of three girls.
