My passion for dance comes from a background of technique from a ballet academy combined with African Contemporary and competitive dance. I have lived through the struggles of a professional dancer therefore support and prepare my students for the professional world. Although focusing in the professional aspect my classes express the importance of finding an individual style.
Dance has always been an outlet of artistic expression. Many young students do not understand the importance of the movement therefore do not appreciate dance until they are no longer involved in it. I believe dance is one the most thereputic outlets. Teaching young students how to appreciate the art in balance with competition and technique is what I enjoy about being a dance teacher.

First, address their skill set through questioning and across the floor work. Then, depending on the class agenda I will provide a warm up that aquadates to the choreograph or minimal technique that we plan to build upon.
I have been dancing for 14 years in three dance companies over all 13 years. My experience falls across all compeitive categories of dance, african cultural dance, and a strong ballet technique from a academy of ballet.
I have been teaching since I was an apprentice in my competitive professional dance company.
I have worked mostly with inner city after school programs but have experience with contemporary dancers learning and adapting to other styles of dance.
Recently, I have started a club at the Penn State Harrisburg University that focuses on young choreographers expressing their work. As well as, just recently winning a 5 class scholarship to Capezio Dance Center.
If you would like to learn how to love dance even in times of physical or mental strain; I am a teacher that will motivate you to do things you would never expect.
My advice: Many task and skills in life are perfected by the way you a perceving it than the physical task itself. "Mind over Matter"
Are the needs physical or mental disorder? Are they temporary or permenant?
