Vashti began her dance training at the age of 13 at a recreation center in Richardson, Texas. A few months later, she began training seriously at Tuzer Ballet with Tanju and Pat Tuzer, former dancers of the Harkness Ballet, where she received many opportunities, including performing in the Nutcracker and in a Turkish folk-dancing group called Rakkas Dance led by Onur Kasaburi.
In 2016, she moved to Florida and joined Tampa Ballet Theatre as a trainee. She spent the 2017-2018 season as an apprentice and was promoted to the company in 2018. She has enjoyed performing soloist roles in The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake.
In 2020 she moved to St. Petersburg where she dances with St. Petersburg Ballet Conservatory.
Vashti loves teaching ballet, and enjoys working with many different ages and skill levels.
