    She is an amazing dancer. She really loves teaching and when I do well it makes her happy. We've been working on my posture which has really changed my life. I feel so much better. I would recommend her to anyone!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Good dancer doesn't mean good teacher, good teacher doesn't mean good dancer. To find the good teacher who has both skill, see how they communicate with you and pay attention to you, how they lead you by showing you the dancing and body movement, explains to you. We all start from beginner, good teacher wil motivate you and bring you to up stage!
