Darcy grew up on Cape Cod where she began dancing at the age of two. She trained at Atlantic Coast Academy of Dance studying ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, and hip hop. At age 14 she became a part of their youth ballet company and had the opportunity to preform, in various roles, annual productions of the Nutcracker, including multiple shows for their sister school on Martha’s Vineyard. She also spent time assisting and teaching various styles of dance to younger students. In addition to dance, Darcy’s creativity led her to Salem State University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. Synthesizing art in that visual medium has been gratifying in the times when she can’t get to a dance space. She has been inspired by the DanceWorks community since joining in Season 13 and is looking forward to her first season choreographing.
