    The Dayton Dance Workshop has provide excellent shows over the past few years! Their students are very talented and you can't tell that some of them have never danced before. They appear professional as if they've been dancing for years. I highly recommend catching one of their workshops and participating or just coming to one of the super dynamic productions!


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

When coming to The Dayton Dance Workshop Inc. typically, students go through a series of placement/evaluation classes together. In this first run of classes, the students take on challenges in various techniques and exercises that help our Artistic Director and teaching staff gauge what skill level the student already possess and we work to build on those skills throughout the workshop or series.

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

My training and education in perfroming arts spans over 22 years with experience in Theatre, Musicals, Acting, Professional Dance, International Tours, and Live concerts.
