From Philadelphia Pa, started her dance training at the young age of four under Debbie Appalucci at Touch of Class Dance Studio. While attending the studio for about 12 years her studies included ballet, jazz, tap, modern, and lyrical. She was introduced to hip hop around age seven through choreographers Aleksa Chmiel and Tori Closson, and immediately fell in love with it. She was a member of the very first 76'ers Junior Hip Hop Dance Team, and continued to dance for them for three years until she reached the maximum age limit of 13. During her first year with the Sixers her talent was recognized and she was encouraged to audition for the Fox Good Day Philadelphia Dance Team. She made the team and was honored to have that opportunity. Mariah's talent was also recognized by top choreographers at the many competitions and workshops she competed in with Touch of Class. She received a scholarship every year for four years that she attended the Co-Dance workshop. In effort to strengthen her skill in hip hop, Mariah joined the junior hip hop company of LeX and Tori's Flomotion, Flomotion Too. The company performed at many different events, and was featured in the Young Dancer magazine where Mariah was chosen to grace the cover along with one other member. At about age 16, Mariah stopped attending Touch of Class Dance Studio in effort to focus more on hip hop. She felt that she thrived most while dancing in that art form. She soon joined Jr. hip hop company Nyce Stylez, under the direction of Desire Feliciano. In the recent past, Mariah performed with the Garden State Dance Festival for two years. Through this experience she was asked to assist choreographer Crystal Frazier, and to also start training with Rennie Harris' Pure Movement. She has been training with the company for almost two years now, and is currently a member of the second company RHPM RHAW. She is now also assistant director of Nyce Stylez Dance Crew. Mariah hopes to continue growing as a dancer, and understands the importance of never giving up on her dreams. She is determined to make dance her career because it is the one thing she knows she will never get tired of!
