Describe your class at J'adore:
Athletic, fast, fun, and current. Having the opportunity to travel and see how dance is changing and growing across the world keeps me on my toes and inspires me to bring something new to my students each and everyday. I emphasize self discipline and perseverance in my class to help students see that all goals are possible.

What do you hope your students get out of your class and why do you love teaching at J’adore?
I want all of my students to truly embrace that dance is a true outlet. I want to help them see the gifts they have in themselves and encourage them to share them through dance. My class focuses on musicality, rhythms, accents, and abstract movement. I love to have fun with my younger students and want them to leave feeling empowered and confident. I love seeing our students grow year after year and feeling part of the J'adore family.
