Inspiring Young Minds For Over 30 Years

There’s so much more to dance than beautiful movement.

From chassés to self-confidence, your child will learn grace, grit, and confidence to dance like everyone’s watching.

“Teaching kids to count is fine,
but teaching kids what counts is best.”
- Bob Talbert

I believe so strongly in this quote because I get to see it in action. Year after year, students come through our doors and we get the unique opportunity to teach them lasting life lessons though dance.

 

My focus as a teacher is self-confidence and determination.  I call that determination “grit”.  And it’s been a huge part of my success over the last 40 years as a dance instructor!

 

As a former professional dancer, member of Dance Masters of America, Cecchetti Council of America, and a certified Acrobatic Arts instructor, I’m dedicated to your child’s success in the studio and cheering them on outside of the studio, too.
