Describe your class at J'adore:
My typical class is structured fun. I keep the classical aspects of ballet and try to bring a modern understanding of how it relates to art and dance today. To me, dance is all about technique and freedom, you can’t have one without the other.
What do you hope your students get out of your class and why do you love teaching at J’adore?
I hope all of my students leave my class feeling loved and special. I think it's important for children of all ages to have an outlet where they feel successful and strong. Each class is taught through a curriculum, but packed with fun. Nothing brings me more joy than watching a dancer accomplish new movement and material. J'adore is a second home to me. Here, I am able to explore my passion and work with some of my closet friends and family.
