Hope started her formal dance training in Placer County, and went on to study at California State University, Sacramento, and with the School of the Sacramento Ballet. While training in Sacramento, Hope had the privilege of performing in faculty and student works at CSUS, and alongside the professional company at the Sacramento Ballet. 

Hope earned a B.A in Dance from California State University Sacramento, and upon graduation, moved to New York City to study with The Ailey School. While in New York, she performed for Bouchra Ouizguen/Compagnie O, in films created by New York University, Tisch students, in Ailey School-produced works by choreographers such as Darrel Moultrie, and in self and peer choreographed compositions. 

Hope returned to California in 2019, where she has been refining her training with Allyson Deane, Linda Yun and Richard Shi. She has also assisted with recent Placer Theatre Ballet productions of The Nutcracker and Snow White, while developing her skills as a dance educator, and auditioning for future work.  She is thrilled to be working with Aria’s to the Pointe, and is passionate about creating an excellent technical foundation for her students.
