2: How old were you when you took your first dance class?
I was 9 years old. My first class was Ballet/Tap which was held at a
big warehouse where they use to play bingo.
3: What made you decide to become a dance teacher?
I decided to become a dance teacher because I had such a great teacher
when I was little who pushed me and inspired me to be the dancer I am
today. I just love sharing my love for dance to other people and it's
exciting and really satisfying to watch kids grow as dancers! Happy
faces make me happy!
4: What do you like most about teaching with Creative Dance Kids?
It's a new experience going into schools and teaching in different
environments. I enjoy that the kids I teach are new and eager to learn
and it's awesome to be a part of after school activities!
5: Do you have any professional performances coming up? If so, with
who? When and where will the show be? Yes! I am a company dancer with
Ballet Ariel and we have "The Sorcerers Apprentice" and other works
coming on Nov 5th and 6th!! Come and check it out!
6: What is your favorite dance move/trick to teach?
I love playing "free dance" because it's really fun to watch the
student's individuality in their dancing and witness how they explore
