Dance has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. It's a big part of my identity and has shaped me into the teacher I am today. After a professional dance career in New York City, I went back to school to pursue my Masters in Dance Education at NYU. My teaching career developed out of my passion for the art form and the need to share that joy with young people. Needless to say, I began teaching dance for the Los Angeles Unified School District and that was 10 years ago!
