Her performance credits include Tulsa Ballet, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Northwest Dance Project, Utah Ballet, Seamless Dance, Character Dance Ensemble, Georgia Ballet, Legacy Theater, the Moscow Circus, and Quixotic Fusion.

Victoria is honored to have taught and choreographed for seventeen years for studios and dancers across the country. In 2013, Victoria moved to Kansas City with her husband and found her home at The Pulse Performing Arts Center.

She is thrilled to be starting her ninth season as a faculty member and Director of Education at The Pulse.
