We are thrilled to welcome Tori to Strutt! Tori is a native of Mount Pleasant, SC. She has trained in ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, hip-hop and tumbling. She joined the dance competition world in middle school and received scholarships and regional and national titles over the years such as Regional and National Dancer of the Year through the dance convention/competition, Hollywood Vibe. Fast forward to college, she spent three years on the Carolina Girls Dance Team at the University of South Carolina from 2012-2015. Her senior year, she was recognized by her peers and coaches with a Leadership Award, which she values greatly. After graduating from USC in 2015, Tori moved to Los Angeles, California for a few months to further her dance training at Millennium Dance Complex.
While in California, Tori came upon the opportunity to move back to Columbia and become the assistant dance coach for the Carolina Girls. She has just started her third season being the Assistant Coach and is ready for an awesome season! She is also very excited for her first year teaching her knowledge and experience of collegiate dance team at The Southern Strutt!
