Learn to dance for your wedding, social dancing, or just for a fun way to stay active! I teach several styles of Latin and Ballroom dance.

My lessons focus on connecting with your partner and being in tune with his or her movements. A proper connection makes it easy to quickly learn new steps, and to move together as naturally as possible.

For online/video lessons: You might think a partner dance would be hard to learn online; to learn to lead or follow well, it's important to have tactile feedback in order to feel the relationship between your movement and the results from your partner, and vice versa.

However, with attention to body mechanics and a focus on alignment and movement technique, you can still learn a lot online. Especially if the thought of group classes is intimidating for you, starting with online lessons can help you learn some basics at your own ...

Adorn Me is a class with the main objective of raising an awareness of femininity through dance.
Beyond dance, this class includes breathing exercises, affirmations and a focused warm up.
WE are focused on building a community of women who are committed to the adoration (wellness) of their vessels as well as their spirits'.

I am a 46 year old female, that still have a little self confidence issue and really want to work on that. I’ve been to several workout classes, but this one (Adorn Me) was different. In reading what to expect with the Aforn Me class, I was intrigued. I attended an in-person dance class with Instructor Darrica Jones and I really had a wonderful experience and a fun time.

Darrica’s class allowed you to feel safe, about how you feel about yourself and all while she is helping you to be more confident about yourself and body. The class wasn’t easy, but it was fun and worth it. Who wants an easy class.

Do yourselves a favor and just try it. What do you have to loose? You will not be disappointed. #adornme #selfcare #fearfullyandwonderfullymade

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume

Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is …
