About this pro

Dance has been a part of my life since I was 3 years old. I have a deeply rooted passion for it and that passion and love is what fuels my teaching.  

I started my training at the acclaimed Larkin Dance Studio in St. paul MN. Their students have been seen on SYTYCD, Broadway, and World of Dance to name a few. I moved from Minneapolis to NYC 7 years ago to attended Pace University where I studied Dance and Musical Theatre. My past teaching credits include JAMM Dance company, Dance Esteem, and Lundstrum Center for Performing Arts 

I feel that I am most proficent in teaching styles of Jazz, Contemporary/Lyrical, Musical Theatre, and ballet. Which ever style you are interested in learning more about, we will focus on technique as well as the intention and meaning behind the movement. I love working in one on one settings so I can focus 100% of my attention on a student and I always do my best to create a safe, non-judge mental, and positive environment! 

Transformation has always been a word that holds important meaning to me. It’s what I enjoy most about teaching dance: watching my students grow and transform not only as dancers, but as artists and as people. There is a great discipline to be found in dance, and I find that it carries over into all other areas of life.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching at an extremely young age. When I was 13 I began giving private lessons in Jazz technique and competition dance solo coaching to the younger girls at my dance studio. From there teaching has always been a part of my life! 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with a varierty of students over the years each ranging in ability and style of dance. My versatility and intuitive adaptibilty to each person enables me to do so. Students come to me when they want to focus on improving their technique, when they want to start fresh with dance, and when they need a coach or choreograpger for a performance piece they are working on. A huge part of performing is artistry and intention behind the movement, so with my acting and theatre background, I have a special ability to hear what the music is saying and translate that intention into movement.
