Throughout, my years performing with companies across the country I have had the opportunity to teach and choreograph for many students of all ages and abilities. My class starts slowly and builds in speed and technical demands. I try to put an emphasis on artistry, although I do feel it is something that develops with age. I take a somewhat kinesthetic approach to dance; in attempt to eliminate tension which results in injury, associated with technique that is forced. I like to challenge the mind with patterns and musicality which I feel helps latter on in grasping choreography quickly. I love sharing my passion for this wonderful art form with young aspiring dancers. It is a joy to bring my current knowledge and experience in the professional realm of dance, to young dancers.
