TEACHING EXPERIENCE

More than a decade of experience teaching in studios, public schools, outreach programs, studios, and private/Montessori schools. Contracted schools include Leport Montessori Schools, Montgomery Village Middle School, Roberto Clemente Middle School, Minnieland Elementary School, A. Mario Loiederman Middle School, Albert Einstein High School, West Potomac High School, and Takoma Park Middle School (in addition to state festivals and workshops.) Also contracted in nursing homes/senior centers. Additional organizations include Artists Striving to End Poverty, Tennessee Children's Dance Ensemble, Dancer's Studio, District Music Academy, BalletNova, Mercier School of Dance, Bethesda Conservatory, Hope4Haiti, Sertoma Center, and as freelance teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a dance educator, choreographer, and artist I aim to empassion students to lead a life filled with learning, curiosity, and discovery. Whether the student is an accomplished performer or new to the craft, I urge dancers to become world citizens committed to improving themselves and the world around them. I focus on offering the students meaningful experiences they can carry with them no matter what their future profession might look like. I ask my students to employ creativity and critical-thinking in each class. I foster an inclusive, welcoming environment so that students can invest in abstract-thought without fear of failure. I commend students for exploring their voices while educating them on the rich lineage of dance that has proceeded them. My approach to student assessments is multifaceted. The first goal is to promote creativity and artistry in a safe, communal environment. My socially-engaged, energetic, and multicultural method celebrates diversity and individuality. I foster a sense of community with an emphasis on collaboration. Therefore, students are in-part assessed by their commitment to discovering their own voice while supporting their fellow classmates. Second, the students are expected to gain a better understanding of the craft that involves a diverse perspective on the evolution, history, and significance of dance. Student examinations consider movement, written, and discussion-based assessments. This critical-thinking element allows me to nurture different learning styles and meet the students where they are; rather than where they are expected to be. This student-centered, process-driven approach strives to spark discovery, curiosity, and socially conscious engagement in the students. My practice is intended to encourage exploration and constant learning so that students are bettered in the varied professions and lives that lie ahead for them.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I trained in ballet, modern, jazz, dance history, and cultural dance beginning at the age of 6 with Dancer's Studio where I later became a member of the Tennessee Children's Dance Ensemble. I moved on to receive my BFA in Dance Performance at George Mason University's Honors College. I have written reviews and dance articles for several years in addition to teaching, performing, and choreographing all over the world. Most recent tours and traveling has brought me to Haiti, Cuba, and Jordan.
