I am a graduate from UNLV with a Bachelors in Fine Arts in Dance Performance & Choreography. My choreographic work has not only been premiered in four UNLV Dance Concerts, but as well as in concerts for dance companies in Las Vegas. I was also awarded UNLV Dance Department's Outstanding Performer Award. I have experience training, teaching, choreographing, and performing all throughout Las Vegas, as well as collegiate dance experience, in performing in New York and South Korea with a select, elite group of dancers. I am trained in the techniques of and teach hip hop, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, improv, choreography and modern. For my choreography, I draw inspiration from and truly love to mix the genres of contemporary and hip-hop, creating a blend of hard hits and smooth releases.

Lucinda was on time, very friendly, and happy to get right to the lesson after getting a little background I do. She made some suggestions for attire, stretches, warm-ups, etc. We can't wait to see her again!
