I enjoy sharing my love and passion for dance with so many new students. I help them build confidence and help them build everlasting friendships. I make each and every dancer feel apart of the family at Intrepid Dance Company.
The instructors at Intrepid are top notch. They emphasize technique, but in a fun way. My daughters have made so much progress this year - much more than they would have at our previous studio. I highly recommend Intrepid. We love our dance family!
I began dancing at age 4 at The Dance Shoppe in Plymouth, MN. I have trained in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Pointe, and Lyrical for 22 years. I was a part of a competition team and competed both locally and nationally for 12 years, and was a part of a number of award-winning numbers.
I have trained with Desiree Robbins, Gregg Russell, Ray Leeper, Doug Caldwell, Chris Moss, and Wade Robson to name a few. I was also chosen to perform in the pre-game show for Super Bowl XXVI. I have taught a wide range of ages and dance styles. My students have won a number of Overalls and Judge Choice Awards.
I still take the opportunity to take classes when I can to continue my dance education as an adult. This classes then help me grow my dancers in a more well-rounded way.
I was offered the opportunity at the studio I grew up in to become an assistant teacher and things grew from there. I have loved to dance and believe in my training and love to share that with each and every student.
I have worked with beginner students up to those more intermediate/advanced. I take the time to learn each of my students and provide them with the best training I can and push them to become a better dancer.
Pick a teacher who you feel will listen and help you achieve your goals. Every teacher in the industry has something to offer you as a dancer. Look at the overall environment that you are taking a class from, is it welcoming to you, is the atmosphere fun, do you want to come to dance each week because you are learning so much and having fun while doing it. So many places may offer what you are looking for but you have to be comfortable in the environment in which you are learning in.
What is your overall goal in why you want to take classes?
Is it for a hobby or do you see yourself really pursuing this in the future - college etc?
