I am a teacher of twelve years and I love what I do! My theatrical dance lessons may consist of warm up, stretch, technique, progressions, choreography, and improvisation. We will condition, build strength and flexibility, coordination and confidence, while focusing on technique and important stage notes like stage direction. My main goal is that my students have fun in addition to benefitting from our lesson. All my classes are personalized to suit my students' goals, progression, and timeline.
