Holly holds a Master of Arts degree in Dance from Texas Woman's University and Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Literature from the University of Texas at Austin.
Before moving to Los Angeles, Holly began her career in Texas dancing in independent contemporary companies (among them the Jazz Ballet Company of Austin under Diedre Russell, and Commedia Ballet Theater under Natalie Kramer and Chasen Greenwood), freelance commercial-dance-style industrials (Mary Kay Seminars, Sally Beauty Industrials, Eclipse Entertainment), commercial projects (Columbia Pictures Promotional for Good Morning Texas), and post-modern contemporary work. Holly founded and directed Preston Hollow Dance in Dallas, Texas where she trained students of all ages and produced performances. She worked closely with Belinda Richardson who is now the owner and artistic director of PHD.
In her movement practice and research Holly is currently investigating connections between spiritual acts and dance making.
Holly's training in dance was guided by many influential teachers over time. Lately, Holly's most inspiring and influential teachers include Rosemary Candelario and Gracie Whyte. In the past, Holly trained and/or worked under dancers including Densil Adams, Diedre Russell, Dana Lewis, Lyn Wiltshire, Jose Bustamante, John Merrifield, Sarah Gamblin, Mary Williford-Shade, and Jordan Fuchs, among others.
Outside of dance Holly loves being a mother to her two (soon to be three) young children. Holly loves to sing and can be found in her husband's studio singing bgv's for SAG AFTRA as often as possible.
Holly is the owner and designer of The Dance Angel, a dance retail business manufacturing her patented luggage line for performance artists.
