Tori started dancing when she was just 3 years old. When ICON opened its doors back in 2006, she joined as one of the studio’s first students and stayed for 8 years until she graduated high school. Training with the ICONic company in hip-hop, ballet, lyrical, contemporary, jazz, cheer funk, and acro has led to many performance opportunities for Tori. With ICONic, she has performed at KTU’s Beatstock concert, Hip Hop International in Las Vegas, Madison Square Garden, the Apollo Theatre, Hammerstein Ballroom, Symphony Space, the ESPN Picnic, Lakewood BlueClaws games, and much more. Tori also trained with several conventions such as NuVo, The Dance Awards, Monsters of Hip-Hop, and The Pulse on Tour, earning multiple scholarships along the way. Most recently, she worked for Walt Disney World Entertainment, performing throughout the resort in Orlando, Florida.
Assisting classes as an ICON dancer is how Tori developed her love for teaching and choreographing. In addition to ICON, she has assisted at workshops along the East coast, participated in a number of charity events, and taught dance to special needs children. She is also the assistant choreographer for the United States Tournament of Dance National Team, (choreographer Donielle Janora, directors Sean & Natasha Flanagan), helping set performances for Disney, Universal, and NBA halftimes. In 2018, Tori received her BBA in Arts & Entertainment Management from Pace University and is so grateful that she now gets to teach at both the recreational and company levels at ICON. She loves contributing to the growth of the ICON dancers, as she once stood in their exact position. By supporting her students to be not only great dancers but great people too, Tori is ready to take it to the #NEXTLEVEL with her ICON fam!
