Teaching since:

I hold a BFA in Dance from The Hartt School and am a former dancer of The Metropolitan Opera. I currently teach all levels of Ballet and Modern in New York City. I have been dedicated to this art form for over 25 years and teaching for 10 years.

My classes are fast paced and challenging filled with positive reinforcement. I specialize in Classical Ballet technique, Pointe/Variations, Modern/Improv, and Contemporary Ballet. I combine various techniques to create a powerful and technically refined dancer. My classes are balanced with humor while focusing on technique, strength, musicality, and performance quality.

I would love to share my passion of dance with you!
