A native of Fremont, California, Naomi began her dance training at the age of seven at Rachel’s Ballet, where she studied the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus for five years and completed numerous exams with distinction. She also trained for two years at Ballet Petit in Hayward, where she appeared in the Nutcracker, Cinderella, Giselle, and Paquita. In 2012, Naomi began her studies at Silicon Valley Ballet School (formerly Ballet San Jose School) under the direction of Dalia Rawson, Mads Eriksen, and Le Mai Linh. There she completed several American Ballet Theatre exams with honors and danced in many school and company productions. Naomi especially enjoyed performing company roles with Silicon Valley Ballet, most notably in 2015 as a Snowflake and Mouse in Karen Gabay’s The Nutcracker and as a Wili in the U.S. premiere of Alicia Alonso’s Giselle. Naomi was invited to join The New Ballet Studio Company in its inaugural season. With the Studio Company, she appeared in the Odalisque Pas de Trois from Le Corsaire and in contemporary works by Dalia Rawson. Naomi has attended summer intensives at the Teen Dance Company (now Conservatory for Contemporary Dance Arts), and on scholarship at Silicon Valley Ballet, The New Ballet School, and the School of Oregon Ballet Theatre. In addition, she has taught piano since 2011 and accompanied classes at Silicon Valley Ballet School, having studied and performed extensively for over ten years. This summer, Naomi completed the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum teacher course and is certified to teach Primary through Level 3. Naomi is excited to be returning for her second season with The Studio Company.
