As a professional contemporary dancer and a strong believer in the power of dance, I teach dance to enforce confidence, boldness, creativity, and deeper awareness within my students. As a young teacher, I am able and willing to demonstrate and teach in a very hands-on way that encourages my students to learn more than just steps and to truly use dance as a way to explore their bodies and minds.

When working with a new student I like to ask him or her some preliminary questions. These questions center around the student's goals for the lessons and any strengths or weakness they feel they have. I then like to devise a lesson plan and structure and ask for their feedback before getting started.
I received a BFA in Dance from the University of Michigan where I completed a teaching methods/pedagogy course. Since then I have been teaching ballet, jazz, contemporary, and hip hop at studios throughout DFW, and dancing professionally with Dark Circles Contemporary Dance.
