I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do! Contemporary dance is the perfect subject for artistic minds to explore their movement. If you’re new to dance, Contemporary can be a great place to start because it is all-encompassing, including many other styles of dance. It is unique because it integrates classical technique with abstract flow, making it a broad style with lots of creative freedom. During my lessons, you will learn technical foundation in several dance subjects that have contributed to Contemporary style dance, while having plenty of opportunity for individual spontaneity and play. You will be guided through warm-ups, stretches, exercises, and choreography to improve your technique, strength, control, mobility, and movement quality. We focus on basic technical elements from ballet, modern, and jazz - all styles that have influenced contemporary dance. We practice movement of the torso including contracting and releasing, direction and weight change including fall and recovery, controlled legwork, and floor work. We also incorporate freedom and exploration of movement through improvisation. If you’re looking to: -Learn to dance -Improve overall strength -Get stronger, more toned and sculpted muscles -Have better body awareness -Improve your style and quality of movement -Increase flexibility -Pickup & retain dance choreography -Get better extension -Increase joint mobility -Improve balance & control -Have better posture -Increase stamina & endurance -Have better rhythm & musicality -Improve coordination -Improve technical skill -Have more confidence ...Then Contemporary is for you! You will feel your physical progress and be left with a sense of overall well-being, as well as see your improvements and accomplishment as an innovative dancer and artist. My lessons are personalized to suit you: your goals, progression, and timeline, so you'll get the most out of your lessons and enjoy the process along the way!

In my class the focus will be to tailor the movement to your specific needs whilst sharing with you all my knowledge to help you grow and achieve your goals. We will work on your technique as well as your artistry. A beautiful dancer doesn't only have a strong technique but the ability to embody a character and convey a story through movements. All my classes are open to all levels, if you are a beginner dancer we will take the time to go in details through every moves, if you are more advanced I will challenge your technique and artistry but most importantly we will have fun sharing our common passion for dance. I teach all my classes at my home dance studio with high speed internet and with a professional mic for you to be able to hear me clearly over the music.

International touring dance artist with 10 years teaching experience, multiple certifications and awards. Contemporary dance is my expertise! I have been a professionally-contracted contemporary dancer around the world for the past 9 years and I look forward to working with you no matter your level or age; whether you are a dancer or not. We will connect to our bodies and the energy as we find new movement and freedom within ourselves. Learn how to move in and out of the floor efficiently and effortlessly. Connect emotions to movement. Find fluidity that you have never discovered. Learn challenging phrase-work that will expand your mind and movement. This is your time to either learn about the contemporary dance world or dive deeper into your practice. Let's go!
