Originally from New York City, Courtney grew up in a very musical family. Her mother is a pianist and composer, and her older sister is a professional opera singer. Courtney’s childhood was filled with music and dance. She started taking piano lessons at 6 years old and joined the Young People’s Chorus of New York City at 10 years old.
Courtney went on to pursue a career in classical ballet, and trained at the School of American Ballet and Ballet Academy East in NYC. She later attended Indiana University where she graduated with top honors, receiving a B.S. degree in Dance, while still continuing her piano training all the way through her college years.
Courtney has danced professionally in New York City with Dance Visions NY, IsadoraNOW and Dances Patrelle as well as with Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, IONA Contemporary Dance Theater and Onium Ballet Project. In 2016, Courtney started her own non-profit organization, RammDance, a modern dance company that performs the works of modern-dance pioneer Isadora Duncan, as well as Courtney’s own original choreography.
Courtney is a new mother, having welcomed her daughter into the world on June 1st, 2017, and is delighted to have her daughter exposed to Music Together at such a young age. Courtney is very excited to join the Music Together family, and to share her love of music, singing, and movement with children and their families.
