- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
I first twirled around a ballroom during my freshman year at the University of Toledo when I joined the UT Ballroom Dance Society. This foray into partnership dancing fulfilled years of dreams previously squashed when my mom told me that ballroom dance "is for old people" (an opinion Mom quickly changed after experiencing the energy and enthusiasm of a collegiate ballroom competition).
I taught for 2 years after college (2006-2008) but didn't get serious about my dance career until 2014. Since then, I have purused certifcation through Dance Vision International Association, and have taken training with multiple world and US champions across the country.
My ultimate goal is to help every student experience the pure, unadulterated joy that comes when nothing else in the world matters except the music, the movement, and your partner.
