Mercedes was born and raised in Charlotte, NC and competed for 13 years.

She has trained in many genres of dance including Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, and Musical Theatre. She also has training in aerial work and acro.

At a young age, Mercedes became part of a tap company in Durham, NC known as the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble (NCYTE). For three years, while still competing at her home studio, she traveled with the company and performed in shows throughout the U.S.

Once graduated from high school, she began a job with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. She performed in the condensed 90 minute version of the Broadway Musical “Hairspray!” and also a Cirque Du Soleil inspired show that had contemporary style dancing and harness work. After completing her contract, she began assisting famed Choreographer Bobby Newberry.

Soon after meeting Newberry, Mercedes decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams as a professional dancer. In addition to assisting Newberry and teaching at an Orange County Competitive Dance Studio, Mercedes filmed a pilot and first season of a reality television show with MTV. She also appeared on a reality tv show on WE TV.

After spending over a year in LA, Mercedes moved back home to pursue her education and decided to fully be involved with teaching and choreography for studios throughout the U.S. She now permanently resides in Charlotte and teaches full time. She loves teaching and loves being part of the DE family, and we are pleased to have her energy and talent in our house!
