By the time she was 10, she had joined DDC’s resident non-profit dance company, the Denton City Contemporary Ballet (DCCB). In the summer of 2017, she toured New York City with the company through DCCB’s Educational Touring Program, taking classes throughout the City. She has participated in many intensives and master classes at DDC. Candace also joined our Assistant Teacher Program and assisted classes for 3 years, before teaching her own classes at DDC during her Junior and Senior years of high school. She attended Texas Ballet Theatre’s summer in 2021. After graduating from high school in 2022, she danced with Dallas Baptist University’s (DBU) Patriettes during the 2022-23 season. In April of 2022, Candace became a National Dance Alliance D2 Pom Division Champion with the DBU Patriettes.
