What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Just have fun! Learning sometimes can feel a bit overwhelming. Don’t worry if you make a mistake or if it doesn’t come easy right away. Dance is unique for each person, so enjoy what you’re doing and don’t compare yourself to others.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I’ve been dancing since I was 3 or 4 and want to share the joy with others.
What do you love most about your job?
Teaching others how to dance or a piece of choreography and when everything clicks for the dancer and all their hard work comes together and to see their enjoyment in it.
