What makes me different is that I have the innate ability to see what a student needs and help them produce results and find personal growth, through building confidence. My brand: moveDIPR offers dance + "more than dancING" . . . professional development. 

I hold 16 years of experience in Dance Education/Choreography; I've shared my teaching/choreography at 11 prestigious facilities, while residing in 4 cities: Chicago, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, & New York.

I went to college for dance, made connections and started working in the education dept at a top studio in Chicago.

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

A session with me will be life-changing and worth every penny!

However, must be ready for honest feedback and being pushed beyond comfort. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
