About this pro

I am a retired dancer now coaching dancers in technique and performance building for dancers building a pre-professional career. In addition, I am coaching dancers interested in performing at a competitive level as soloist as well as joining a competitive traveling team. Dancers training with me will be trained in classical ballet and pointe technique as well as jazz, tap, acro, lyrical, and contemporary. I look to train professinal individuals both in dance and in life with an appreciation of all forms of art. 

I have been teaching and coaching dancers and performers for nearly 10 years. I enjoy what I do as I get to see my dancers grow into strng and independent individuals who are kind to to other and confident in themselves. Through dance I have seen dancer grow confidence and develop a passion for dance that is wonderful to share with everyone.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

A new student would be introduced via a private lesson so parents and dancer and myself may get better aquainted and to see a good class level placement. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a bachelors degree in psychology and am pursuing a masters degree in dance therapy as well as as second bachelors in arts/talent management. With these degrees I am able to develop amd manipulate programs and lesson plans to fit each student and their individual needs.

I have been dancing for over 20 years and danced professionally with Joffery ballet before injury ended my career. I have trained with Faubourg ballet, Joffery's pre professional program, and competed reginally and nationally in Illinois, Wisconsin, and New York. 

My dancers are reginal and national title champions competiting in groups, duo/trios, and solos in ballet, pointe, jazz, lyrical,contemporarry, and tap numbers. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My hourly rate is $40, but for dancers interested in joining my competition team and have a talent manager I charge a semester rate.

Competition fees range based on the competition we are attending. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching my starting private lessons with a child wanting to learn how to compete as a soloist and needed extra time and help trying to learn with her dyslexia. Since then I fell in love with teaching and moved on to teach classes for multiple studios and start training dancers to compete, which has lead me to start developing my own competitive team. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students aged 2-18 as well as adult students. I also teach classes for dancers with special needs both learning and physical. 

I teach dancers beginning to advanced who dance recreationally up to preprofessionally.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Rencently I took a group of dancers to a national competition where we won the most entertaining number award. I enjoyed this event because it was a three day event filled with dance and people who all share the same passion.
