About the Artistic Teaching Partner

Artist Statement

Everyone can dance. Everyone! With that philosophy I enter the classroom with the positive attitude and excitement of the myriad of possibilities that await us. Learning can and should be fun. My objective in each class is not only for the students to understand the technique, history, rhythms and various styles of dance, but also to enjoy themselves – and to finish class with a better feeling than when they started. A good dance class is all that and more. A good dance class allows students to express themselves in ways that aren’t always possible and allows them not only a physical outlet but a mental stimulation. A good dance class allows the students to grow and understand in new ways, providing another tool for their journey on this life adventure.
