Naomi, a native of Fremont, California, began her 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 the New Ballet School (formerly Silicon Valley Ballet School) and has since 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 Nutcracker and as a Wili in the US premiere of Alicia Alonso’s Giselle. Naomi has attended summer intensives at the Teen Dance Company (now Conservatory for Contemporary Dance Arts) and has been on scholarship at both Silicon Valley Ballet and the School of Oregon Ballet Theatre. In addition, she has taught piano since 2011, having studied extensively herself for more than 10 years, achieving many exam honors. Naomi joined the New Ballet School Studio Company in its inaugural season and is excited to be returning for a second year.
