Whether it is Waltz, Cha Cha, Broadway or Tap, there is no more euphoric experience than moving your body through space to great music. I believe that everyone can enjoy dancing and have their life enhanced through dance. In my classes, I aim to inspire joy, teach technique and introduce choreography in the context of laughter and fun. While I guide and correct, I don’t make my students feel self-conscious or criticized. Dance and music have been my life’s work and my enduring passion. Nothing brings me more satisfaction than sharing that passion with my students. For that reason, at the end of every class I say, from the bottom of my heart: ‘Thank you for dancing with me.'”
