In short, I am a performer and educator wrapped up in one! Originally from Pennsylvania, I moved to the New York City area in 2007 to perform and formally launch my company, Dance.Laugh.Learn – A music, movement, and drama program for kids. As Co-Founder and Artistic Director, I do everything from teaching to curriculum development. I am brand new to the Charleston area having moved with my husband a few short months ago. I previously served as the Director of Education & Development at Class Act Performing Arts Studio in South Orange, NJ. My areas of responsibility were Musical Theatre, Kids on Broadway, Dance Combo, Private Voice Coaching, and Company Team. I holds a B.A. in Music Performance from Ramapo College of NJ and is a certified Kindermusik (Music Education program for children) and Leap ‘N Learn (Dance Education program for children) instructor.
Each vocal lesson will focus on the technical aspects of proper vocal technique including: pitch development, ear training, music theory, rhythm, musicality, and proper breath support. Acting lessons will work on improv skills, projection, objective, and choice. We will be silly, we will have fun, and we will learn and grow!
