Teaching Philosophy:

Dance is about more than just performance. It is a form of communication, an expression of emotion and a vital part of society. I want students to embrace the many ways movement impacts their life and incorporate it as part of a healthy and expressive lifestyle. I want my students to see the potential within themselves as artists and work toward achieving their goals - artistically, personally and academically.

I love to travel and I have had the good fortune to study and perform dance in many countries on four continents. Dance is the universal language so that where ever you travel, you can always find someone to relate to.
