About this pro

Wedding dance choreography and training at its finest! I love seeing the enjoyment my students have while they learn this new skill.

I work with people who have never danced in their life as well as folks who have been dancing for years. I teach both private and group lessons and have been teaching for years!

I started taking lessons as a hobby, then trained to be a teacher,. then purchased my dance studio and ran it for 12 years, teaching students and new teachers.

Take a lesson to decide if you like the teacher and their style of teaching.
