How did you get started teaching?

As I started dancing at the age of 5 years, teaching became a natural progression in my training. Learning new skills increases by actually teaching it to others as it gives you the experience of your mistakes and seeing it others. It enables you to become a better dancer in yourself by teaching others.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught students from toddlers to 90 years of age. People who have disabilities both physical and suffering with conditions like Autism, Down Syndrome, Parkinsons, Deafness and students who have been in wheelchairs.

Othes who want to learn for their wedding, to so competitions or have a desire to do dance as a hobby or train to become a dance teacher themselves.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I teach dance and etiquette at the Capital Cotillion, where children from school years 3 to 8 come and have a night of learning social and dance skills. It is a great night interacting with young people, passing on my love of dance. It's fun to see them get over their shyness to gain confidence in asking someone to dance, enjoying the music while intoducing themselves and developing new friendships

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

It is very important to find a teacher that understands your goals, has the experience to help you learn and improve while creating a fun, relaxing but most importantly a positive atmosphere for you.

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

Typically it is the Who, What, Where, Why and How questions that students should think about before talking to a prospective teacher, as not everyone is right for each other. So being prepared is very important.

I always interview my students to make sure that I am the right person for the job, if our personalities clash then it is important for me to be able to reccommend a teacher that would suit them better.
