Born and raised in Hamilton, Olivia developed a passion for dancing at a young age in front of her bedroom mirror! Teaching herself on the side while competing at the provincial level in basketball and pursuing her training further when she hung up her basketball shoes and traded them for dancing shoes. Since then, she has been performing and training in many different styles over the years until falling in love with Latin and Ballroom dance. She now works and teaches alongside Jesse Valvasori out of the The Ballroom Hamilton sharing her love of dance and music with her students. You can usually find the studio full of laughter during her lessons. She is extremely excited to be a pro in this year’s event after attending last year and being a part of this wonderful cause!
