Teaching Resume
MY PHILOSOPHY
I believe every student can become a dancer with the support of a knowledgeable instructor. I’m fortunate to have studied with master teachers who's commitment to my talent inspired me to set and achieve my goal of being a professional dancer. 

I enjoy teaching students of all ages and pride myself on the individual attention I give to each dancer. I create a learning environment that is instructive, engaging, inspiring and, most of all, fun! 


MY CLASS
I teach many dance styles; however, I love teaching ballet because it is essential to every dancer's training. Ballet improves poise, grace, posture, coordination, balance, flexibility, athleticism, and musicality. My class focuses on the placement, precision, and artistry of ballet technique. The class begins with simple, yet challenging, exercises at the barre followed by combinations in the center and across the floor. Dancers will also learn the definitions of ballet technique using French terminology.
