Many have fantasized, at one point or another, about being a famous entertainer. Most, however, do not pursue those dreams. Naomy Ambroise, a young Tampa performer, is determined to turn those dreams into reality.
Ambroise is a senior enrolled in the School of Theatre and Dance at the University of South Florida. She has only been involved in theater since high school, but if you ask the students at the college, Ambroise’s name stands out.
“Naomy is very multi-talented, very dedicated and truly inspiring,” said Danielle James, fellow dance and theater arts student.
Being a performing arts career is not easy. Besides theater performance, students take ballet classes on body disciplines and memorize pieces for performance in class regularly. The two weeks while a show is being put on require 14-hour days.
“I chose to be a performing arts major because there was just like a satisfaction you get from being able to reach people,” said Ambroise.
Ambroise has been involved in four productions while at USF. She recently auditioned in New York for acceptance into theater graduate schools; 11 more are interested. She plans to attend after graduation or become an apprentice for a theater company.
