Whether you’re in love with salsa, bachata, cha cha, rumba, tango, swing; waltz or just have an event you need to look good for or you want to make someone happy; I’m here for you! I’m very passionate about teaching and dancing and I make sure that everyone’s dance journey is filled with fun, friendship, understanding.
My students always leave with a smile, saying they feel more motivated and energized after the lesson. I adjust to their learning style, keep instructions clear, simple and do my best to make them feel free to express themselves; to let them know mistakes are part of the learning process and to move towards their specific goals with every session.

Anybody can dance but it's not everybody that knows how important dance is to the body system asides it's social attraction. Depending on the type of dancing you do, you will, most likely, gain or maintain flexibility, and, if you dance fast enough to elevate your heart rate to a certain level, you'll be getting a good aerobic/cardio workout. Lots more are attached to dancing. I don't teach dance because you wanna know how to dance only but to appreciate it.

"I have been impacted by Minister Tomecia in such a little time. New to the dance ministry as a whole she introduced flags to me and I have since been invited to minister at several different events and Engagements paid and unpaid and for that I am truly grateful. Not to mention time I call with questions and she gives me unbiased answers to help me grow along the way. Definitely a jewel in my eyes. I call her my dance mom honestly­čśü"

"I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!"
