At the age of ten, Liu knew she wanted to be a professional dancer, and had her parents enroll her in the Shanghai Dance Academy. Liu won a gold medal at a national ballet competition in China in 2009, and has danced in Les Sylphides, Swan Lake and Four Seasons. The desire to expand her dance horizons led Liu to audition for and be accepted into Cincinnati Ballet, for which she left her school and family in China. Liu is enjoying learning and improving as much as possible with Cincinnati Ballet.
