My musical career has taken me around the globe from Japan, to the Caribbean as well as numerous cities in the U.S. and Europe!

I enjoy inspiring a love for dance and watching all the hard work and dedication transform a child/adult into the dancer they want to be.
Growing up I was a member of the elite ballet training program at Westside Academy of Dance. This rigorous program consisted of 2 classes a day, M-F, and all day classes Saturday. I attended the Joffrey School of Ballet summer intensive programs in New York. As a professional I was a soloist with Aeolian Ballet Theater and Dance Electric. At MarVista Recreation I taught a variety of dance classes, such as Ballroom, and jazz hip hop ages 10 - adult. I specialize in intermediate and advanced level ballerinas looking to fine tune their skills for auditions and perfecting lead roles. However, teaching and inspiring young children has been newly found passion of mine. I enjoy watching the development of their skills reached by practice, patience and commitment.
