About Me

I believe body movement is a universal language that can be spoken at any age, and is also one of the largest untapped, therapeutic resources we have readily available to us as human beings.

***What I do***
Since the age of three, I have been training in a multitude of dance techniques including classical ballet, modern, contemporary, tap dance, African dance, hip hop, and social salsa dancing. I have danced on competitive dance teams, performed commercial and non-commercial concert work, professional dance companies, and entertainment industries. It is my passion to share my skills, training, and experience with others to achieve their personal goals. Whether it is classical ballet training for professional work, or feeling comfortable on the dance floor of a social gathering.. I will help you get to the next level. I am able to train at all levels from beginner to advanced and pre-professional.

***What to Expect***
A fun, engaging, relaxed, yet informative experience. I will push you and challenge you to go past your comfort zone in order to feel and accomplish things you never thought possible with your body. I put a balanced emphasis on proper technique as well as self expression. I invest 100% of my energy into every lesson - whether online, at home, or at the studio. And most likely, yes, you will sweat!

About Me

I have always loved to dance. Even before I started taking classes I would choreograph dances for myself and my dolls. I began dancing competitively in 2002. In summer 2007 I was selected to be a part of Team Rave, a professional children's dance team. In 2009, I won 1st overall as a soloist at Celebrity Dance Competition, Nationals at Sea.

I continued to dance in High School and led our dance team as a captain my senior year. During this time I also attended many workshops and conventions including CAHPERD, The Pulse on Tour, and The Radio City Rockettes Summer Intensive.

After graduating High School I danced for the Inland Empire 66ers Dance Team in San Bernadino, CA. I started taking dance classes at MiraCosta in 2011. I had many incredible opportunities including performance, choreography, and the privilege of attending The American College Dance Festival in 2012. In spring 2014 I completed an AA Degree in Dance and received a Legacy Award as well as The Friends of Dance Scholarship and Award.

While attending MiraCosta I also had the opportunity to dance in 2 professional movement theatre shows. Both shows were choreographed and directed by Tsofia Gal, an Israeli Creative Arts Therapist and Certified Movement Analysts. Her work embodied the energy healing process experienced by the dancers. I danced a supporting role in FIVE at The Hollywood Fringe Festival in July 2012. In July 2013 I danced a lead role in Perah' at The White Box Theatre.

I am also a certified Zumba Instructor.

I love sharing my passion for dance with my students. I enjoy encouraging them to improve their skills in a fun and safe environment.

About Me

This past May I graduated from New York University with a BA in French and a BFA in Dance. I was awarded the Prix d'Excellence from the French department for highest overall academic achievement in my graduating class, and I have maintained status on the Dean's Honor List throughout my college career.

While completing my double major, I danced professionally with Cherylyn Lavagnino, the chair of the NYU Tisch dance department, and have been actively teaching French and ballet lessons. Before attending college, I danced professionally with Richmond Ballet and North Carolina Dance Theater.

I have been a ballet dancer for 21 years, and I discovered my love for teaching this art form seven years ago. Throughout my career as a professional ballet dancer I continue to share my knowledge and experience with students of any level in a private or group setting.

My passion for French language began in high school and was fostered during college. I work with students of any level to improve their conversational skills, pronunciation, grammar, and written French.
