Ali is living out her NYC dream
I moved to New York City in 2014, after five years dancing with ballet companies across the country. I wanted to take a stab at dancing as a freelancer in New York City. Although the prospect of being a freelancer and living in this city scared me, it was time for a challenge. Now I’ve been here for five years, I’ve had more opportunities as a dancer than I could have imagined, and I’ve met the most wonderful and interesting people. My dream since the age of 8 has been to have a professional ballet career, and I feel lucky every day to do what I love here in New York City and beyond.
