ABOUT WHITNEY

But Whitney's impact extends beyond the stage and screen. As a non-profit leader, she dedicated over a decade to Victory Music & Dance Company, where she served as the Artistic & Education Director and Co-founder of the Dance Academy. Her influential role included teaching, arts leadership, and producing main stage events. Her unwavering passion for leveraging the arts as a dynamic tool for community engagement and social change traces back to the young age of 15 when she taught her first dance class to underserved youth at the Schenectady, NY Boys & Girls Club. Her two-year commitment to making a positive difference was recognized with the National George Bush Presidential Scholarship for Volunteerism. This journey led Whitney to earn her Bachelor’s degree in Dance with a minor in Acting & Communications Studies at Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus (Go Sharks!). Whitney has also held multiple arts leadership roles with renowned organizations such as Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Education Program, Long Island University's Dance Department, and Dancing Classrooms Inc.

 

Outside the limelight, Whitney finds joy in life's simple pleasures. She's a karaoke enthusiast who loves belting out tunes with her family and friends, a devoted volunteer for community arts programs, a budding writer, a dedicated student of the Haitian Kreyòl language, and a nature lover who finds serenity hiking on the trails of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.
