I first asses your knowledge and movement ability and understanding while at the same time noteing corrections that may need to be made to get you to desired level or ability.
I also create a regiment to help maintain and increase strength and flexibility while away from me outside of private lesson.

I asses the work needed and time

and create pricing from there.
Ive been teaching since 13 years old from connecticut New York Virginia and now Atlanta i found my gift along with being an amazing performer is cultivating talent helping them reach there goals and above and choreographing masterpieces.
I have a heart and understanding of humble beggining and i am very patient with the process of growth but i also know with the right push and motivation time will never be the factor in how fast you will grow.
I have not choreographed a routine that has not placed in top 3 of any competition i have entered.
Be ready to work at your full ability have fun and work at the same time.
Im a relentless teacher with understanding of the body and its functions pertaining to dance.
Am I committed to my goals
