My classes are fast paced and challenging filled with positive reinforcement. I specialize in Classical Ballet technique, Pointe/Variations, Choreography, 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.
My classes are for everyone of all ages. I would love to share my passion of dance with you!
