Make Every Step Count

I love dance…

I love how it makes me feel, alive and soulful. I love helping my students to feel the same way, through connection with the movement of their own bodies. This is my main goal as a dedicated dance instructor, to see each of my students leave my classes feeling energized and joyful.

I knew as a child that I would follow a path of music and dance, the things that moved and excited me. By high school, I was well on my way to those goals. I was playing drums and trombone, and choreographing formations and routines for the school dance team. After high school, I was invited to perform for the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders.


I continued along the path by learning different genres of dance; began competing and winning competitions, and from there experienced the sheer joy of teaching others to dance.
