She became a professional hip-hop dancer in 2006, performing nationally in China, and teaching in many places including studios, high schools, and colleges. In 2010 she founded her dance company in Guangzhou, China and actively engaged in collaborations with local dance companies and artists.  

After moving to the States, she continued to perform and create works as an independent artist. Her works have been presented on national stages such as the Dixon Place in New York.  She has been dancing with Jacksonville Dance Theater since 2019.
