1.   Tell us a little bit about yourself. 

I of course LOVE teaching dance, my students are my inspiration.  I love traveling especially trips to the beach!!! I also have a precious little Corgi named Megan.

2.   What is your first memorable dance moment? 

When I was 2 I watched a Teletubbies episode of a girl tap dancing, and I’ve been obsessed with dance ever since!!

3.   What do you love about teaching?

I love when I can see the growth and improvement of my students from the beginning of the year to the end.  It’s always amazing to look back and see how far they have come. It truly is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world.  

4.   What do you love about Hello Dancer?

I love that it is a place for kids to learn to explore and love dance, all while building a solid foundation.  

5.   Who is your favorite cartoon or animated character? 

Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service.  When Kiki the insecure young girl begins to question herself, she loses her magic abilities, she must overcome her self-doubt to get her powers back. She finds her purpose and regains her confidence.  

6.   What do you want your impact to be as a teacher at Hello Dancer?

I want to be able to pose as a mentor and role model for my students, while building their confidence and their creativity.  Teaching is my chance to give back all that I’ve learned through my experience with dance and life. 

7.   What are you qualifications?  

I have been dancing for over 21 years, and teaching dance for 4 years.  I have a BA in Communications with a Minor in Ballet.  I was captain of my high school dance team, and later became the director of the team for 2 years.  Under my direction we won several awards with All Star Dance and UDA and, including a trip to Disney!
