Since I was very young I have been performing in the arts and I knew that I wanted to pursue this career for the long run. As a dance teacher I have the opportunity to combine my love of music and dance for each one of my students teaching rhythm, partnership, expression and technique. It gives me such fulfillment seeing my students progress and improve every day. It gives me great joy to bring my students joy.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
If you are just getting started, don't feel nervous! You are in the right place to learn how to feel more confident on the dance floor and most importantly, to have fun! Before starting lessons, I would like to meet with you for an initial 30 minute session so that you can meet me, make sure you feel comfortable and learn some basic elements of dance. If you are getting ready for a wedding and already have something specific in mind, I can outline how long you'll need to realize your vision. If you are throwing your hands up in the air in confusion, I can help with suggestions and recommendations to make the process easier. Whatever your dance goals may be, I will direct you in the right direction and create a game plan for you.
