Born in New York and raised in Los Angeles, Adrian started dancing at the age of six with Ballet, Tap and Jazz and at age 11 Adrian was accepted into Paula Morgan Dance Academy. Adrian continued her education as a Dance Major at California State University of Long Beach where she studied Lewitzky, Graham and Horton and also had the honor of working with such greats as Michele Simmons, Gus Solomon, Judith Jamison.
Shortly after finishing her studies at CSULB, Adrian met her mentor Winifred Harris, artistic director of Winifred R. Harris’ Between Lines Dance Company. Adrian fell in love with the movement and related to the vision and passion of the choreographer. Her drive, determination and attention to detail did not go unnoticed and she quickly became principal dancer and rehearsal director of Between Lines. You can say she was Winifred’s clone of “stylized technique”.
In addition to company/theatre work, Adrian has worked commercially with credits in television, film, music videos, and stage productions. Combining Lyrical, Modern, Hip-Hop, and Freestyle, she’s traveled nationally and abroad to such places as Japan, Korea, Europe and South America. She continued to develop her style, personality, business savvy, inner strength, and technique which kept her in constant demand as dancer, choreographer and teacher. Adrian has had the opportunity to work with such artists as Prince, Toni Braxton, Dr Dre, Drew Carey, Debbie Allen, Michael Jackson, Brian McKnight, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Spice Girls, Lou Bega, En Vogue, and Aero Smith just to name a few.
