About Our Instructor

For me, teaching ballroom dance is multi-faceted . . . it is my most articulate creative outlet, my deepest connection to spirit, my “go to” way of connecting to humans on this journey, and most importantly, my ultimate way of inspiring others. At the base level, what I do is encourage people to take risks, to grow, and to find comfort and happiness in the simple act of being present in their own bodies as they move through space and time.

Thank you for always being there and supporting all my endeavors. Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for taking this journey with me. And lastly, thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my love and dreams with each of you…I am genuinely humbled.
