Dance had been my passion from a very early age in fact when I was a child I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and it was said that I would be in a wheelchair at the age of 18yrs old. Thankfully this was not the case I opened my very first class when I was 18yrs old. Therefore every day I'm grateful that I can do what I love and more importantly that I can teach others the joy that dance can bring to your life. My mission is to empower and educate students and teachers alike to be the best that they can be and to fully equip our next generation of students and teachers with all the tools, they need to excel in the ever-changing dance industry. We help connect emotions and feelings to movement while creating exceptionally high standards of dance & performance.
