WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR

 

I love to see a dancer that is connected to their material beyond just their technique. Dance can be about more than just pretty lines and timing. I want to see a dancer tell a story and connect with their audience by sharing their heart, soul and their ideas as an artist.

"Trust that you’re on your own path. While Dance Competitions are an amazing teaching tool, the trophies and scores won’t be important down the road. What matters is your dedication, work ethic and focus. Trust that you are on your own path and try not to get distracted by the accomplishments of others."

WHY DO YOU LOVE BEING

 

 I love giving back and sharing with the next generation of dancers in addition to encouraging those dancers that may be on a longer learning curve. As a young dancer, it took me a little longer than some of my peers to figure out some of the technical elements of dance. In spite of not “winning” all the dance competitions as a student, thanks to my dance teachers (and kind adjudicators, who saw my passion and dedication) I eventually figured it out, and have had a career as a performer and a dancer. I want to be there for those students who are like I was.
