by Bob Rizzo - June 30, 2016

Khori Petinaud was more of an athlete as a child yet she still sashayed around her house in tutus, tiaras, and dance slippers. She didn't actually start formal ballet classes until she was thirteen.

Her foray into musical theatre was with the national tour of The Color Purple. (more...)
