What I Love most about teaching? Helping my students and find a new passion in their lives – whether they are younger or older. I love how dancing can affect my students’ lives and moods in a good way, in and even more outside, the studio.

Who I admire the most and why? Not a who…something I admire most would be Mother Nature. I think the way life and earth work together has a big impact on how people think and act.

One thing most people do not know about me is … I am actually a pretty good singer and know how to play the guitar :)
