“You will never know everything when it comes to dance because there is always something new to learn. I take this to heart and as long as I can move I will always be in search of new things to bring back to my students. This journey has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember and to be able to share my passion with so many is an incredible feeling. I look at myself as a role-model for your child, and I thank you for allowing me to be in their lives. I am completely blessed to have a job I absolutely love, what more can I ask for ?! “
