My philosophy in teaching is this: Education is everything. I work to educate myself year round through personal coaching on dancing, competition judging, dance technique, philosophy, psychology, anatomy, physiology, experiencing the industry’s successes and challenges. My goal is to always be able to give back to the world of dance by giving my past, present and future students the finest education and dance experience possible.
