Seth McCoy was born and (mostly) raised in Maryland. He recently graduated from Anne Arundel Community College with a double major in dance and chemistry. He’s now pursuing his bachelor’s degree at Towson University.
McCoy has always had an interest in science and aspires to do environmental research. He began dancing at age 13 and has loved it ever since. McCoy would love to pair science with a performance career if the opportunity arises.
While not studying or performing, McCoy enjoys gaming, painting and annoying his cats.
