As a student she performed the roles of Snow Queen, Arabian, Spanish dancer, “Flowers” soloist and “Snow” corps member in David Allan’s Nutcracker.

She has also performed modern works by Sofia Carreras and contemporary works by Jessica Adams. Naomi was awarded a scholarship to Texas Ballet Theater for the Summer Intensive with Ben Stevenson. Additional training includes summer workshops with Katrina Killian from School of American Ballet. Naomi was invited to the Anaheim Dance Festival to take master classes with Darci Kistler and Edward Villella. For the Minnesota Ballet, she has danced as Peaseblossom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the Queen in Sleeping Beauty.
